Broker Associate | REALTOR®
A passionate native Texan, Rick can trace his roots to the Republic of Texas. If you ask him, he’ll say he was born 100 years too late. He spends as much time as possible on the unspoiled ranges, the rocky hills and the barren desserts of Texas. When invited on a European vacation, Rick said “Why would I go to Europe when I haven’t seen all of Texas yet.”
Born and raised in South Texas, fishing and hunting have been favorite pastimes since Rick’s youth . . . ducks in bays, whitetail in the Hill Country, dove and quail on the Coastal Plains, and desert mule deer in West Texas. His first real job was driving a tractor on a milo and cotton farm at age 14, and he worked on game and cattle ranches through high school and college.
Rick is a proud Texas Aggie, receiving his B.S. degree in 1981 from Texas A&M University where he commanded Company C-1 in the Corps of Cadets. After a short stint in the oil and gas business, Rick spent years working in commercial construction, custom homebuilding, and real estate development in the Dallas area. In 2007, Rick joined Mossy Oak Properties of Texas as owner and broker of the Hill Country Group, based in Kerrville. After 14 years specializing in hunting and recreational ranches, he teamed up with Key and Key Realty to continue serving the rural property market as a Broker Associate.
Each fall and spring, Rick displays his chuck wagon skills as wagon cook on several historic West Texas ranch, and for a few big deer camps during hunting season. He supports Ducks Unlimited, Dallas Safari Club, Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation, and the N.R.A. A single and lever action firearms enthusiast, Rick also makes his own gun leather. He has served the Highland Park community where he lived for 27 years on the Park Cities YMCA Board of Management, Sports Committee, and as a youth baseball coach.
Rick married his wife Julie, the day after college graduation. They have three boys, one daddy’s girl and ten grandchildren. Rick and Julie have resided in the Kerr County community of Hunt since 2012.
