Residential & Commercial Real Estate Broker with 8+ years of experience. Customer Service, Integrity, and Expertise are my priorities. I will serve your referrals with sincerity and honesty.
If you need a professional real estate broker in the Knoxville area, I am ready to serve.
I am a native of East TN. I earned my B.A. and M.Ed. at Carson-Newman College. I will soon have my Ph.D. from Amridge University.
I am the very proud father of two hearty, smart, good boys. They are my motivation and inspiration.
In my free time, I enjoy practicing martial arts (Muay Thai and BJJ), lifting weights, hiking, camping, reading, and more. I love to laugh, watch cartoons, play games, and listen to music (from Marvin Gaye to Gospel to Hip Hop to Bluegrass).
I take pride in whatever I do. I want to do it well. I am something of a perfectionist in that sense.
I write for 5 local papers. I have always enjoyed the writing process.
Areas of Expertise
With a strong academic background, I have pursued a number of experiences in my professional life. I worked for 10 years as a therapist and social worker. I value service to others. As a Realtor, I have logged over 500 hours of professional training and achieved Broker status.
I have earned the GRI, ABR, and CRS designations. I am working on my CCIM (completed 3 of 5 classes and most of commission requirements). I enjoy working with new construction, downsizing to condos, and first-time buyers. With commercial, I enjoy listing raw land and helping businesses find lease locations.
Richard always remained professional, positive, and we always felt comfortable throughout the whole process of buying our first home. As soon as we met him, we knew we wanted to work with him through this exciting time in our lives.
We felt Richard really understood our wants/needs in our home and showed us homes that were exactly what we were looking for. He helped us when putting in our offer to the seller and was not pushy at all when they came back with a deal that wasn't that great. He was totally willing to help us continue on our search for the perfect home!
On a 1 to 10 scale, I would rate Richard as a 10! I think he showed us the house we eventually closed on 3-4 times before we put in our offer.
What stood out most to us about Richard was his honesty, sincerity, and overall great personality. The day we closed on our house, he left us a bottle of wine, trash bags, and letters for our mailbox. It was a very sweet gesture that really meant a lot to us.
We would definitely recommend Richard to our friends and family.
