About the Brokerage
The Home Team of America was originally founded in 1993. As our founder and Coach always said, “We’ll leave the light on.” We are a full-service real estate brokerage with agents in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Dallas, and other Texas cities. Our team is complete with experienced and licensed office staff, in-house counsel to assist with complex matters, and a Broker that is in the building ready to assist the team with their questions and transactions.
Who is the Broker?
Richard graduated from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas. Richard started his legal career as an in-house counsel for Home Team of America Realtors. After learning about the real estate industry, Richard became the Broker and Vice President of the company in just over 2 years. Richard agreed to join Garrett Clayton as a partner to start Clayton & Ramirez where he specializes in Real Estate and Document Review.
Richard has lived in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston, but, having attended William B. Travis High School in South Austin and the University of Texas for undergraduate studies, considers Austin home. In 2017, Richard married Elizabeth Shumpert Ramirez, of Austin, Texas. Rick and Liz can often be found attending sporting events at The University of Texas, enjoying concerts, or traveling to an amazing destination.
Whether Richard is working or relaxing, he enjoys helping aspiring students who have questions or have found hard times. Richard was once in those shoes and has never forgotten those who helped him achieve what he once thought impossible.
