Originally from Lampasas, Texas about an hour Northwest of Austin, Richard grew up loving the Hill Country, Texas and the friendliness of the people who live here. From a young age, he was exposed to nature and football and was surrounded by family and friends who loved both so it was only natural that he did, and does, too. So you can imagine, after years of living away from Central Texas in Dallas, Vancouver, WA, St Louis, MO and attending high school and college, at the University of Texas in San Antonio, moving back to Austin in late 2003 was coming home.
For those of you that do and don’t know, Austin not only offers the beauty of the Hill Country, the lakes and the friendly people but also an eclectic mix of art & film, colleges, festivals, football, great schools, high tech, live music, nature, ranches, restaurants, shopping and much more, including one of the best business climates and safest places in the nation to raise a family. Austin and Central Texas, quite simply, are about quality of life through varied lifestyles and that is what he offers his clients and their families. Real Estate is how he delivers the lifestyle(s) you and your family desire!
Professionally, he started his career with H.E.B., one of the great grocery retail chains based in Texas, and learned customer service on the job by providing it as he worked his way up to being a Customer Service Manager at one of H.E.B.’s Flagship stores while attending UTSA. Later, after receiving a degree in Accounting and a minor in Management Information Systems, he moved into outside sales, marketing, and business development, spent years traveling the nation and working with many of the most recognizable and successful Fortune 500 companies in the United States. He would visit their retail, wholesale and distribution operations, audit their processes and systems and develop and implement solutions to improve those processes and systems, which required creative thinking, working with people from varied backgrounds, detailed documentation, strategic marketing, negotiation, sales, customer service, and support.
With a wife, Rachel, whom has been a “rock star” in the mortgage business since she was 18, exhaustion from “planes, trains, and automobiles”, and more than just a casual interest in real estate, he decided to focus his expertise, knowledge and skills into becoming the best Real Estate Agent he could be and his clients will tell you that they have benefited from his experience. Of course, you can’t be the best, or stay the best, without continuing education, valuable mentorship and working with the best so he commits time every week to education, has a partner , Donna Ciccarelli, who is an unrivaled mentor and represents Realty Austin, the best brokerage in Central Texas!
Rachel not only excels in business but also is his best friend and a great mom and he has been extremely lucky to have her as his wife for 22 years and counting. Together, they have a daughter, Megan, who is a freshman at Tarleton State, and a son, Sam, who is in 6th grade at Cedar Park Middle School and also happens to be on the Autism Spectrum. They love doing anything as a family, enjoying all that Austin and Central Texas have to offer and just working around the house or hanging out. During the holidays, they give the Griswold's a run for their money!
Whether it’s residential or farm & ranch, real estate is his platform to help people and he strives to make a “positive difference” in his clients' lives every day.
Richard Fowler by far exceeded my expectations as my realtor. This was my first time buying a home and he was so patient and helpful with me during this process. He was sure to explain any questions or concerns I had and also walked me through the whole process seamlessly to make sure that in the future if I wanted to resell my property there would be no issues. Richard did all he could to look out for me and my best interests especially since it was my first time buying a home and had no clue as to what I was doing. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all he did for me and highly recommend using him as your realtor if you are looking for one. Thank you so much, Richard (and Donna!) for all you guys did for me!

Richard Fowler was very accommodating to our needs while also being refreshingly realistic and forthright when necessary. We had a very enjoyable, and pleasantly quick, home buying experience.
At the time of our search, my husband and I were living on a month-to-month lease and were concerned that we would rack up significant costs while finding a house. However, Richard's attentiveness and ability to produce results kept those costs low.
Three days before closing, we ran into an issue with our loan. Richard remained our champion and ensured that our lender was able to deliver a reasonable solution quickly so that we could have the home of our dreams. Even months after we moved into our new home, Richard called to check in and help assist with any problems.
Not everyone finds the realtor of their dreams! We couldn't be happier with Richard's outstanding service.

Richard is one of the finest individuals I've had the pleasure of knowing. His work on our behalf was impeccable. He skillfully guided us through the process. We were wise enough to take his recommendations and they paid huge dividends. The house was sold in a little over a week on the market for more than list price. Richard demonstrated real concern about us. He went out of his way to ensure that we understood what was happening and that our property was secure. He made sure we got the best deal possible and was very skillful in obtaining the best terms on our behalf. We highly recommend Richard to prospective Buyers or Sellers of Real Estate.

We have been in our new house in Cedar Park, TX four months now and we absolutely love the house and the community. We wanted to give a shout out to our wonderful Real Estate Agent, Richard Fowler. Richard made us feel like we were his only clients at all times and went above and beyond, not only in setting up multiple viewings on potential homes but also helping us with all the closing arrangements and details that went into our monumental move from Minnesota to Texas. Richard was exceptional at making sure we understood all the details regarding the paperwork/loan and was always available when we had any questions. Even after closing, Richard kept in touch with us to make sure we had everything covered and everything was running smoothly for us. Richard's attentiveness and attention to detail made this a painless and memorable move for our whole family and we owe him a huge amount of gratitude in guiding our family on to our next journey of experiencing life in Texas. Thank You!

Richard exceeded our expectations and personalized our home buying experience, helping us find our perfect home. He really" got" what we were looking for and worked to show us houses that fit our needs. He went above the call of duty on many occasions. We were moving in from out of town, so he helped us with getting inspections and quotes and meeting these companies at the house under contract, recommended many good service companies to us to choose from and really stayed on top of our deadlines. He helped us with negotiations in a very professional manner and made the difference in us getting our home in a "hot' market with multiple contracts received in the first day of showing. If you want to buy a home in Austin, I would highly recommend Richard! You will get nothing but excellent service, a caring individual, a high integrity person, a professional experience and a home, not just a house.
