Twenty-two years ago, Ricky Tucker was a Realtor® in Baton Rouge. Little did he know then that his involvement in the real estate market would become far more personal. Nineteen years ago, he started Ricky Tucker Custom Homes, Inc., and began building quality homes in and around Acadiana. Today Ricky Tucker is one of Acadiana’s premier homebuilders, a committed industry advocate and a dedicated community partner.
If you asked Ricky what he wanted to be when he grew up, he would have listed average eight-year-old responses: an astronaut, a cowboy, a fireman. Builder probably didn’t occur to him. So Ricky went through school like so many who intend to do one thing with their lives but who find themselves doing something else. Aware at least that his future lay in entrepreneurship, Ricky finished college with a bachelor’s degree in business administration – marketing.
