2014 was an awesome year.

As a real estate agent and REALTOR® with Florida Executive Realty in Tampa, I appreciate our wonderful Tampa neighborhoods. I have built a reputation over the past 10 years with customers looking to buy or sell a historic or vintage home.  However, I and my team are certainly not limited to the historic neighborhoods of Tampa’s urban core.  We have been a reputation of Honesty, Integrity, Service & Results and it is those qualities that have taken my team and I far from the Heights to Carrollwood, Lutz, Temple Terrace, Plant City, St. Petersburg, south Tampa, and to the edge of MacDill Air Force Base.  Those old houses remain my specialty but regardless whether you are looking for a bungalow or vintage home or real estate in the Tampa Bay area my Team and I would welcome the opportunity to help you find the home of your dreams.  However if “vintage” is not your dream, we are committed to helping you find not merely a house but the home you have been dreaming about in the neighborhood you desire.  Ultimately my Team and I are more concerned with helping you find the home that is the right fit for your needs. 

I believe Tampa Bay offers incredibly diverse housing choices: from historic Craftsman bungalows to the contemporary; from traditional single family homes to trendy urban high rises with amazing views,  and our goal is to show you homes that meet your lifestyle and budget. 

The housing market has improved dramatically over the past 2 years as we have entered a strong recovery phase. Please check out the custom neighborhood search buttons to assist your home search. These search buttons access all the properties that are in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) whether you are looking for a bungalow or new home. These are located  on the on the left side of the screen.  Please check for updates as I continue to add more neighborhoods. You have the option to create your own custom search.

Thank you for visiting my website.  Whether buying or selling a Tampa Bungalow, vintage home, or newer construction in one of the historic neighborhoods (or beyond), I hope to provide you with information, to earn your trust, and earn your business.

Where to start?

For many people buying or selling a home one of life's more stressful events. If you are a first time buyer it can seem overwhelming. Who is the right agent for you? What neighborhood? Home Inspections? 4-point inspections? Insurance? Choosing a lender. Move in ready? Some TLC? Needing renovation or repairs?  The goal is to help you find the home that works for you without the stress.

So how do you choose a real estate agent when shopping for a home? A lot of people choose their agent by driving down the street and making random calls to agents with listings that caught their attention. Others go with the recommendation of the friend of a friend. Do you know how many transactions that the agent has successfully closed.  Do you want to be the test case?  The typical agent closes 8 to 12 deals a year.  Is that really the best way to choose someone to help you when making one of the most significant financial decisions? Over the past 5 years I or my team have closed an average of 40 deals a year.

Buying a home is usually the biggest purchase many of us make, it is important to choose that agent that will SUCCESSFULLY guide you through the home buying process. If you are a buyer,I and those on The Vintage Home Team will listen to what features are important to youin your future homeand match your desires to what is available on the market. As a real estate sales associate and a REALTOR®, customers come first. What does that mean? Please see the testimonials page to see what that has meant to previous customers who placed their trust with me to either buy or sell their home.

At Florida Executive Realty and with Rick, the customer ALWAYS comes firstI take great pride in providing excellent service to my clients. After all, we are partners in this process.
