Tom is a West Texas native of Lubbock and attended Texas Tech. A background in banking and motorsports public relations, led him back to following his father in real estate in Lubbock. He met wife Pat(an Amarillo native), while both were with a Coldwell Banker brokerage. They married, combined their knowledge, and moved to Austin in 1999. Pat spent several years as Education Manager for the Texas Association of Realtors. Tom established their business with a RE/MAX brokerage and became a force in representing major banks for marketing foreclosure properties. Pat now manages the office functions of a wide-based company, which works with buyers worldwide and selling homes for banks and mortgage firms.
Tom is marking his 16th year of association as a RE/MAX agent. They joined Austin's newest RE/MAX office, RE/MAX Metro Realty, located in Central Ausitn on a major freeway, on July 1, 2011. This new office offers space for meeting clients and giving service for their expanding clientele.
Away from real estate, Tom and Pat are "dog people", enjoying watching their Terriers in show competition, gardening and reading. Pat is an accomplished 'knitter, creating many pieces, which she donates to the Dell Childrens Hospital in Austin. And the Richardsons donate a portion of every commission to the Childrens Miracle Network. They have two daughters and a son in Lubbock, Dallas and Atlanta, with a growing family of grandchildren.
