About Andy Mick
Richmond and the Berkshires are my full-time home! My wife and I moved to the Berkshires in 1999 to pursue professional careers in newspapers and government. First living for thirteen years in a wonderful southeast neighborhood in Pittsfield and ultimately moving to a mini-farm in Richmond. Now we can enjoy some of the more rural comforts of the Berkshires, while still being close to the services and cultural venues we enjoy. For those either living or wanting a home in Richmond, West Stockbridge, Stockbridge, Lenox or Pittsfield, I have made the move myself and can help you with your home buying or selling adventure, as only a good neighbor can! Andy is the product of a United States Air Force officer’s family. Born in Sherman, Texas, he spent his childhood in Texas, Ohio, Delaware, and Florida.
