My name is Richard Long and a realtor with Allen Tate Realtors. Oconee County has always been my home. I'm happily married to a wonderful lady since 1973 whom happens to be my best friend. We have two sons, wonderful daughter in laws and 4 beautiful grandchildren. My family enjoys a lot of together time from celebrating holidays, Clemson Football, hunting, camping, golf and church.
I have an Associates Degree in Nuclear Engineering and retired from Oconee Nuclear Station after 37 years of employment. At ONS I progressed through the ranks qualifying as a Power Plant Operator, Reactor Operator, Control Room Supervisor and retired as a Nuclear Operation Licensed Instructor. I retired in 2014 and spent some post time teaching at Oconee Nuclear Station and Davis Besse Nuclear Power Plant in Oak Harbor, Ohio. This power plant is located on the shore of Lake Erie. What a spectacular site this Great Lake is.
After teaching came to an end, I decided to obtain my real estate license. I have always enjoyed real estate in all shapes and forms. From restored mill village homes to lake front homes on Lakes Keowee and Hartwell. We are a county of lakes including Jocassee and private mountain lakes in the northern part of the county. There's so much to see and do while being a real estate agent and I enjoy every minute of it. I live on a 50 acre farm and enjoy seeing nature's canopy change in each season. I do have my Drone Certification to take videos and still photos for agent listings and for my own pleasure. I enjoy flying just to capture the beauty of the area.
So that's me in a few words and really look forward to working with buyers and sellers. I'm really proud of the upstate of South Carolina and truly enjoy showing it off cause, I know to whom I am showing it to will see the beauty too.
Thanks for reading
