Professional Achievements
Broker/Owner of Vintage Homes Realty. Recognized in REALTOR magazine twice for my bungalow niche in urban Tampa. Greater Tampa REALTORS Government Affairs Com. 2018-2020

From suburban Philadelphia but Tampa has been "home" since 1983. My undergraduate degree is from West Chester University in Pennsylvania. I have two graduate degrees from the University of South Florida.  Entered real estate in 2005 and opened Vintage Homes Realty in December of 2015. I have been referred to as that “bungalow guy” and ‘bungalow Realtor” which is not a bad thing.  If you are a prospective buyer of a vintage home, don’t you want a REALTOR® who actually knows something about those homes they are showing you? And maybe a bit about the community where you are buying or selling as well? After all it is a major investment whether times are good or bad.  However, I sometimes have to remind Buyers and Sellers that I am not just about Old Houses or Seminole Heights.  Over the past dozen years I have helped customers buy in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Spring Hill, Land O Lakes, Temple Terrace, Plant City and more.  What every Seller and Buyer needs is an experience and knowledgeable real estate consultant who listens to their desires, wants, and needs with enough knowledge of the area to closely match your real estate goals. Maybe that is why in the past 15 years since becoming a REALTOR® I have over 400 successful transactions and out SOLD the competition in central Tampa’s historic “Heights” neighborhoods. A consistent advocate and booster of Seminole Heights and the other historic heights neighborhoods since moving into my first bungalow in the early 1990's.  Seminole Heights has remained my home 27 out of the past 29 years and have completed renovations of my third bungalow home in Seminole Heights (fourth if you count my office).  There is a character and charm in vintage homes that I can't resist.  These experiences have given me knowledge about construction and architecture above that of your average REALTOR®.

Rick was referred to me when I was ready to find a new home after moving back to the area. I've had my share of buying and selling homes in the past and had thought I had become accustomed to the process and caliber of most realtors. Rick changed that for me. He truly stands apart from the rest. I've never had a real estate professional work so diligently in finding, researching, and negotiating to obtain my dream home as much as Rick has.The level of detail, commitment, and resourcefulness given by Rick is something that supported me to get into a beautiful home in a much sought after neighborhood that I believed to be out of my reach. I can never thank him enough!

My wife and I were very impressed with Rick as our realtor. He provided a solid listing price on our unique, vintage home and met with the appraiser to provide any support documents necessary to help us meet the appraisal price. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Tampa Bay Area, especially In historic areas such as Seminole Heights.

Rick Fifer is a very knowledgeable and reliable realtor. He has a great eye when it comes to the bones of a home. He is always available and willing to help with all the needs of home buying. He helped us sell our home with amazing aerial pictures of the property. That is something not many realtors do for no extra cost. We have no doubt that is why our home sold within 48hrs for full asking price. Also, when the appraised value came in lower than the contract price, he helped negotiate with the buyer and got us to close for $5,000 more than the appraised value! That is why you should call on Rick Fifer for all your realtor needs.
