Richard Courtney is a Nashville based real estate broker who has successfully mixed business with his life’s passion. Richard has been a lifelong Beatles fan and has found a way to combine his musical passion with his real estate business, resulting in a unique brand in the robust country music capital of Nashville, Tennessee.
Richard has been in the real estate business for over 40 years and is currently a broker at Fridrich & Clark Realty, a premier real estate firm serving Nashville and other areas of Tennessee. In business for over 50 years, Fridrich & Clark Realty has grown to become one of the largest and most trusted independent real estate firms in Middle Tennessee.
He has combined his love for the Beatles with his business experience and by writing several books and organizing events, he has gained a dedicated clientele that consists of producers, writers and other music industry employees.
Often referred to as “the Beatles guy,” Richard has written two books on the famous band. In 1979, the year he joined the real estate industry, he wrote his first book, a self-published novel titled, I Never Saw a Beatle. The publication of that book led to several radio interviews, which got him into the radio scene. His second book, Come Together: The Business Wisdom of the Beatles, was published in 2010 and is a true collaboration of his business mission and his passion for the Beatles. He has since turned the book into business-building courses covering the management and leadership of the Beatles. A writer at heart, Richard was also a real estate columnist for several local publications in Nashville. After becoming a published author, Richard began to notice that it was primarily people from the music industry that would attend his book signings. He got to know many of them, which opened the door to an elite clientele for his real estate career.
Richard has also used his passion for the Beatles to raise money for charity and has organized several Beatles-related events since 2004. The events have featured musical personalities as well as panels of speakers and industry experts. He also hosted a viewing of the Beatles’ 1964 film, A Hard Day’s Night at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville and as a result of some very successful local marketing, more than 1,200 people attended.
Richard is also the host of a weekly Beatlemania radio show called, From Me To You on Nashville’s Hippie Radio 94.5 FM on Sunday mornings.
