About Richard Avery
I spent 28 years in the food sales and marketing industry starting at an entry level position and progressed upward as opportunities allowed. From retail sales to executive VP managing national food clients and corporate grocery customers.
In 1995, I partnered with an independent Grocery Sales and Marking Company based in San Antonio Texas. Together we opened an office in Dallas with one national client and grew the business over the next eight years to exceed $300M in annual sales. That combined with the growth in the San Antonio and Houston office the company had a combined annual sales of $900M.
During this same time in the year 2000 I and two other executives created ACW Holdings, LLC and later RLGH Holdings, LLC which is the financial arm to 16 successful Sonic Drive-Ins in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area to central Georgia.
This partnership continues today.
My wife and I have several rental properties from New Mexico to Texas and had bought and sold real estate over the years. In addition to real estate developments in Kalispell Montana with Alan Avery, (Avery Developments) to Candler Park residential sub-divison in Kathleen, Georgia (Part of Avery Concept Properties, LLC)
After selling my interest in Advantage Sales and Marketing in 2005 and my wife and I retired to our lake house on Cedar Creek Lake.
This afforded the opportunity to fulfill a life time desire to create a second career in Real Estate. Besides my Grandfather owned Avery Real Estate in Oak Cliff, Texas from 1930-1960.
After acquiring my Real Estate license in 2009 and teamed up with my son Richard J Avery Jr. (RJ) to create Avery Realty Group.
RJ manages the parent office in Forney, Texas while I opened the branch office in Gun Barrel City in 2010 which I manage today.
