Ria Wright Hydrick was born in Anderson, South Carolina and has lived in Anderson all of her life. Her family has resided in Anderson for several generations, and her family has a multi-generational history in real estate. Her maternal great grandfather, T. Ree McCoy, Sr., established a construction and development company in Anderson in 1953, and her paternal ancestor, Matthew Gambrell, worked on the old Anderson County Courthouse in downtown Anderson in 1829, therefore being recognized as one of the first real estate developers in Anderson County. Real estate is definitely in Ria’s blood.
A 1999 graduate from T.L. Hanna School, Ria continued her education at Anderson University where she obtained degrees in Management and Marketing in 2003. She was a member of the tennis teams at both T.L. Hanna and Anderson University. In 2004 she married Matt Hydrick from Moncks Corner, South Carolina. Matt is a civil engineering graduate of Clemson University. They have two sons, McCoy and Micah.
Ria obtained her real estate license in 2004 and with the encouragement of family and friends she began listing and selling residential real estate. Ria worked for Prudential for several years and Coldwell Banker for a short time. After getting her Broker’s license in 2008, she opened Real Estate by Ria, LLC. Ria loves people and she loves real estate. Her desire to help others combined with her love for real estate have created a perfect match. One of her greatest joys is finding the perfect “house” for her clients which can ultimately become their perfect “home.”
Ria loves Jesus, her family, her church (Newspring!!), and her friends! Ria would also love to help you with your real estate needs!
