Get to know John Ricks
I was raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and moved to Gulf Shores in 2001. I spent over 20 years in the hardware and building material business before deciding to move to the place I had wanted to live since a child. My parents spent their honeymoon here so I have been coming here all of my life.
I began investing in real estate in the mid-1970's buying my first house while in college. My dad helped me remodel it at night and on weekends to get it ready to rent. I bought my first Orange Beach condo at a complex called Harbour Place in 1998. My wife and I furnished and decorated it and we were hooked on Lower Alabama Real Estate.
I have purchased and sold real estate in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Foley and L.A. (Lower Alabama) since 2001. I specialize in Condos, Single Family Homes and Investment Properties. I have also owned several investments properties in the area. Give me a call and let's talk real estate!
