Essex Homes Employee Spotlight: Adam Rickard

Adam RickardEssex Homes appreciates each and every one of its employees, and we enjoy the opportunity to publicly recognize them for their hard work! We would like to take the time today to recognize one of our new home advisors, Adam Rickard. Adam has been with Essex Homes since December 2014 and says he loves being in the new home construction industry.

As a New Home Advisor, Adam assists buyers from start to finish during the purchasing process. On any given day, you can find him helping customers select the perfect home plan, choosing the structural options they want in their home, picking out design options such as colors for their home and more. From start to finish, he works hand-in-hand with new home buyers.

Adam says having the privilege to embark on the journey with his customers of new homeownership is what he loves most about working in this industry. “There is no better feeling than to help work with home buyers and get them into the home of their dreams,” said Adam.

According to Adam, one of the best parts about working with new home buyers is being able to see their face weeks, months or even years after closing and being able to relive the time spent with them. He says the memories shared throughout the buying process are priceless.

When asked why Adam decided to work in new home construction, his answer was simple: “I would not say I chose new home construction, I would say new home construction chose me. When I was first licensed, I was licensed through Paradigm Real Estate Group out of Lexington, South Carolina. Amanda Holgate, the broker in charge of Paradigm, also helps market homes for Essex. After working with her in those neighborhoods, I knew this is what I wanted to do.”

In his spare time, Adam enjoys spending time with his closest friends, visiting Lake Murray and playing golf.
