Rick Cox

Broker Spotlight

In the 40 years as a local real estate broker, Rick Cox has represented clients when interest rates averaged 14%( in 1984), carbon paper was used to hand-write purchase agreements and he was one of the original owners of Coast Real Estate (now Coldwell Banker Coast Real Estate).

Rick learned the business from his father while growing up in Wichita Kansas. Rick
believes the various forms of technology in the real estate industry have changed the industry the most. Forty years ago, contracts and files weren’t electronic and listings weren’t found online. Technology has immensely changed the real estate world, however, answering your phone and being accessible, are an integral part of Rick’s successful and storied career as a broker in Florence. Rick continues to focus on the relationships he builds with his clients, which shows in the number of repeat clients he works with.

Rick has been known to start out
with his clients by taking them on a drive, pointing out Old Town, the beaches, lakes, and local points of interest. He doesn’t hesitate to let them know that it can get a “little” windy in Florence.

When he isn’t working, Rick enjoys taking his Sprinter van on the road with Clare to
cycle or simply enjoy all the Northwest outdoors offer.

Rick is a true pillar of the Florence
community. If you get the opportunity to visit with Rick, it’s well worth your time, and some of his classic one-liners are sure to come up.
