Our Philosophy

We believe that a home not only represents the epitome of private property, but also serves as the nucleus of our communities and our society. Richport’s history has been a testament to this two-fold philosophy of individual excellence and community good will.

Richport leads the way with examples of individual excellence working hand in hand with communities. Richport’s philosophy is also evident in Guild Quality surveys of Richport homeowners who overwhelmingly say they would recommend Richport to a friend. Rick Porter’s personal philosophy is to build every home with the quality you expect in your own, and to be there through thick and thin. That’s what relationship are all about.

Our History

Rick grew up in the 1960’s in Dekalb county playing on his family construction sites. The son and grandson of brick masons, Rick Porter knew from the start that he would build his own houses one day. Fulfilling the American dream, he obtained his Architecture degree at Georgia Tech while working for his family’s business. Upon graduation, he signed his first contract to build a house for one of his fraternity brothers. From there he continued taking on new challenges such as passive solar design & construction and super insulated foam homes.

Rick’s ultimate goal was to deliver communities where we live and form relationships. It was a natural, then, when Richport embraced the attraction of small town living through one of the region’s first traditional neighborhood communities, located adjacent to Historic Downtown Suwanee. After winning the Atlanta Regional Commission’s award for Development of Excellence in 2001, Richport repeated the combination of small town living, walkability, and conservation in Covington, Braselton & Decatur. Richport was recognized again in 2008 with a Development of Excellence award for Urban Conservation Development on an infill site in Decatur.

Richport has built several thousand homes for over 40 years and placed 400 acres into permanent conservation easements as part of its developments. Richport builds homes, builds communities, builds relationships. Richport Properties is BUILDING A BETTER WORLD.
