Allison Richards leads The Richards Group with Scenic Sotheby's International Realty. Her husband, Scotty, serves as operations director and client relations manager. Allison works frequently with out-of-state buyers seeking vacation homes or investment properties on Scenic Highway 30A.
Allison prides herself on responsiveness to inquiries and the ability to negotiate as a single agent seeking and accomplishing the best terms for her buyers. She has a strong background and skill set for listing luxury properties in the Destin, Miramar Beach and 30A areas. Her negotiating skills are evident in her ability to obtain list-to-sale-price nearly 100% of the time. Her background in interior design and staging helps present her listings with a sophisticated and highly desirable level of marketability.
In 2021, Allison's sales volume was $89 million with 84 clients served, making her the brokerage's top-producing agent by sales volume and top-producing agents by clients served that year. She is the recipient of numerous awards throughout her career: The 2017 and 2020 "Entrepreneur of the Year" awards from the Women's Council of Realtors; "Shortest Days on Market" and "Highest Average List-To-Sales Price" awards from her brokerage in 2019; and "The Extraordinary Award," given to agents with more than $15 million in annual sales volume in 2019, 2020 and 2021. She was nominated by her peers to serve on Scenic Sotheby's International Realty's Leadership Council in 2021. She was recently selected by Sotheby's International Realty to speak in a Master Class on how she's developed her success ratio and annual sales volume.
She is currently competing her Dutch Warmblood from Holland on the Southeastern dressage circuit and will sponsor the 2022 Westonwood Ranch rodeo. Scotty and Allison spend their spare time traveling to horse shows with their rescue dog, Burbot.
