About Ramsay Realtors


Drive anywhere on the south shore and you will see the Ramsay name on sign after sign. A leader in the real estate industry, Ramsay Realtors has helped many in our community find a house and start a home. The real people behind those signs are Rick and Tammy Ramsay, owners of Ramsay Realtors. Rick and Tammy have been partners in life for 24 years, and business partners for 19 years.

Ramsay Realtors was started in 1974 by Rick’s parents, Eric and Joyce Ramsay, also life partners personally and professionally. Originally in the life insurance sector, Eric Ramsay was introduced to the world of real estate by Nicholas Racanelli, Sr., another familiar name in our community. Eric began his real estate tenure with land deals and was instrumental in such developments as The Admiralty, Southwood Estates, Captree Landings, Pathey Gardens, Emerald Woods, Windcrest, Providence Park and Baywoods. In 1997, his wife Joyce suddenly passed and Rick stepped in as partner to help with the everyday workings of the business. In 2001, Eric was diagnosed with lung cancer and semi-retired, turning the everyday workings of the business over to Rick. Known for his integrity and business acumen, Eric was an exceptional mentor to Rick and Tammy, who continue his legacy today. More than a parent and business partner, Eric had a deep friendship with both Rick and Tammy and was the best man at their 1995 wedding!

Rick, a graduate of George Washington University, originally planned a career on Wall Street; however, the market crash changed that dynamic. Rick joined the family business in 1989 and worked side by side with his Dad until his passing in 2004. Tammy is a graduate of Dowling college with a degree in business and education and stepped in full-time to help with the business after Rick’s dad died. With hard work and dedication, and in a loving tribute to Rick’s parents, Rick and Tammy grew the company from an office of 12 agents to one of 35, now ranked 4th in Suffolk County with over $200 million in sales in 2018.

In addition to their business success, Rick and Tammy have been very supportive of their community. Rick spends most of his free time with his sons and never misses a game, whether it is on a baseball field, lacrosse, field or tennis courts. He coached little league for eight years and is an encouraging voice on the tennis courts.
