The Brown Team


Rick Brown embodies trust, integrity, hard work and will exceed expectations in every detail of your real estate transaction! In his many years of corporate experience, Rick learned the importance of a customer centered culture where Highest Quality and Exceptional Service are the cornerstones of your business! 

Rick was born and raised in North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill's prestigious Keenan Flagler Business School. He started his career at the Hertz Corporation with assignments in Charlotte, Raleigh, Norfolk, Houston, Phoenix and Irvine working in sales, management, and operations. Rick moved to Sacramento in 1991 for his new role as the Hertz Corporation Division VP, Western Region. He settled in East Sacramento where he met his wife, Margo, and raised two beautiful daughters. After a successful 35 year career, Rick and his wife, Margo, launched into real estate sales with Lyon Real Estate. 

Rick is an enthusiastic member of the East Sacramento community and spends time enjoying his many volunteer opportunities, traveling with family, and socializing with friends.  His ultimate goal in real estate is to differentiate the customer experience, treating every client in such a memorable way that when the transaction is complete, the customer tells someone else how ‘Great It Was!’


Real Estate is all about realizing dreams, whether you are a buyer or seller. Finding the right professional to walk with on the journey and help realize that dream is the most important decision you will make.

If you're considering selling you're home, it's important to do your homework. You'll want to do the right preparation in order to obtain your goal of selling your home for the best price, even in a market that favors sellers. Buyers tend to prefer homes with curb appeal that do not require a lot of work after purchase. Often, for only a small investment, a homeowner can spruce their home up with paint, carpet, and possibly professional home staging, depending on the condition of your home and furnishing.

When I started my search for a realtor, it was quite a headache. There seemed to be an endless number of options and even more websites telling me what to look for and what to do prior to picking one. I had reached out to a few but ended up going with Rick and Margo after our initial meeting because of their professionalism and knowledge.. and having a team is always better right? :) I honestly had many moments where I was thinking - wait, should I be doing something? filling out paperwork?...
