About Ricki

Ricki's multi-faceted resume, beginning with a two-year stint with the FBI, more than 25 years in the paper industry and as a loan officer with American Home Mortgage and Mason Dixon Funding, reflects the diversity yet consistently distinguished workplace achievements of his professional career. His disposition is a perfect match for the people-oriented mortgage field as is his personal goal of "making at least one new friend each day." In his time as a loan officer, he has secured more than his share of new clients, all of whom acknowledge and appreciate his work ethic and sincerity in securing the best loan for their circumstances.

A native of Marion, OH who spent most of his childhood in Flora, IL, Ricki eventually made his way east and graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA with a B.A. in Religion and minors in Psychology and Youth Work. He still makes his home in Lynchburg and plays an active role in both his church and the local Chamber of Commerce. He’s very much a family man who enjoys most sports, especially those involving water.

    Rick went above and beyond to help my husband and I figure out the best loan we could get. He talked us through each step and helped us in any way he could. We so appreciate his time and attention and we couldn't be happier with our new house!

    We had a long journey in finding a home (a year and a half) and came close to closing on a few before we found "the one". Thankful for Rick's support through it all!
