Before helping folks buy and sell real estate in the Georgia and North Carolina mountains, Rick practiced law in his home state of Florida for over a decade, but his passion was not there. While still a practicing attorney in the area of civil litigation, he and his wife along with their two boys explored the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia and Western North Carolina. Eventually, he began investing in real estate in the mountains and considered making the area his post-retirement home.
