In 2008 Richard Price and Lloyd Trimble worked at one of the national real estate franchises as individual agents. Both were top producing agents in their own right though neither exactly fit the“typical real estate agent” mold. After collaborating on several projects the two realized they worked well together and in 2009 formed a team that operated under the umbrella of the national franchise.
By 2010, as Richard sought ways to improve the experience of buying or selling a home, the team had grown weary of working within the confines of a franchise. Although they had physically separated from the franchise by opening a satellite office they felt hamstrung by corporate oversight controlling everything from where properties could be advertised to the fonts that could be used on business cards. Although such issues were inconvenient, more troublesome were the financial implications. As the team grew so did the franchise fees which by now had reached nearly $60,000 annually.
Recognizing that this money would be better spent marketing properties than lining a CEO’s pocket they broke away from the oversight & financial burden and opened the doors of R.W. Price Realty Associates in 2011. They've since built an incredibly talented team of brokers and other professionals dedicated to providing an incredible experience for each of their clients.

Brokers & Staff
As the Marketing Director of the firm it's Richard's job to oversee our listings and ensure that our documented approach to home selling is properly executed. In over a decade of serving Charlotte area homeowners he's learned that no two clients, and no two situations, are alike. When you meet him you'll quickly discover that he's not there to sell you anything, he's there to listen. In an industry rife with high-pressure sales, scripted presentations, and inauthentic people our clients find his anti-sales approach refreshing.
When he’s not working you’ll find Richard spending time with his family, mountain biking, and, when time allows, traveling. A committed philanthropist, Richard gives a portion of earnings to local and national charitable causes, non-profit foundations, and schools. He publishes a monthly newsletter called Allright Sally with original stories about his life, his business, his clients, his family, and more.

What can we say about Ken? Probably best to just say he's the artistic one and leave it at that. Ken takes care of our photography and video work. He specializes in real estate photography and with all the high-tech equipment he uses along with stellar editing skills most of our clients are surprised at just how good their home looks in photos. Ken's photography is a big part of the reason we get so many inquiries from our advertising.
