What is Richard Hilton's Net Worth?

Richard Hilton is an American businessman who is the Chairman and co-founder of Hilton & Hyland, a real estate brokerages firm based in Beverly Hills. Richard Hilton has a net worth of $350 million. That is a combined net worth with his wife since 1979, Kathy Hilton. Rick and Kathy are perhaps best-known for being the parents of socialites Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton.

Early Life

Richard "Rick" Hilton was born on August 17, 1955 as the sixth of eight children of Barron Hilton and Marilyn June. His grandfather is Hilton Hotel founder Conrad Hilton. His brothers and sisters are: William Barron Hilton Jr. (born 1948), Hawley Anne Hilton (born 1949), Steven Michael Hilton, (born 1950), David Alan Hilton (born 1952), Sharon Constance Hilton (born 1953), Daniel Kevin Hilton (born 1962), and Ronald Jeffrey Hilton (born 1963). In 1978, Rick graduated from the University of Denver with a degree in hotel and restaurant management.


Hilton joined the New York office of Eastdil Secured, a real estate investment banking firm. In this role, he specialized in securing institutional investors and pension funds in various transactions. Hilton formed Hilton Realty Investment to handle commercial real estate in 1984 and obtained his broker license in November 1985. Hilton and Jeffrey Hyland were issued a corporation license for their real estate firm Hilton & Hyland in 1993. Among their many famous developments are Brentwood Country Estates. Former "Million Dollar Listing" cast members Chad Rogers and Josh Altman, Anne Heche's former husband, Coleman Laffoon, and Richard D. Zanuk's daughter-in-law, Marisa, are among Hilton & Hyland's 106 salespeople. Hilton & Hyland specializes in homes and estates in Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Hollywood Hills, as well as estates from Santa Barbara to San Diego. In 2006, Williams and Williams joined forces with Hilton & Hyland Real Estate Inc to develop and distribute projects in the heavily sought after luxury real estate market.

In June 2011, Hilton earned a record-breaking $3 million dollar commission upon the sale of Aaron Spelling's estate to Petra Ecclestone. It had sat on the market for two years at a whopping $150 million. Hilton represented Candy Spelling and Ecclestone. In 2013, the company reported almost $2 billion in sales.

Outside of his lucrative career in real estate, Hilton has dabbled in work as a producer. He produced "Curfew", a 1989 crime drama. He has also served as the executive producer on several television series that feature his daughters: "The World According to Paris" in 2011, 2009's "Paris Hilton's My New BFF", and "I Want to Be a Hilton" in 2005.

Hilton and Kathy Avanzino were married on November 24, 1979. Their four famous children are Paris Hilton, born February 1981, Nicky Hilton, born in 1983,  Barron Hilton II (born in 1989), and Conrad Hughes Hilton (born 1994). Hilton has three grandchildren. He and Kathy live in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
