Richard L. “Rick” Hartness, Jr.


After working with one of the best teams in Northeast Arkansas for almost 25 years (“Thank you Monroe-Paragould team”), it was time for Rick to join THE best real estate team at Image Realty. A lifelong resident of Northeast Arkansas, Rick has grown up, lived and still has family in many of the communities Image Realty NEA supports - Jonesboro, Paragould, Osceola, Blytheville, and Wynne. Rick graduated from Osceola High School, earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Arkansas State University (Go Red Wolves!), and strongly believed in continuing education throughout his 30 years in the manufacturing industry. Completing Real Estate School and passing the real estate exam in 2020 was the fulfillment of a personal goal of several years, and just the beginning of his ambitions in his new career. He is extremely excited to lead and assist Northeast Arkansas residents - both new and established - to fulfill their real estate needs. Rick is married to Brooksie Hartness and they currently reside in Paragould. He enjoys spending time with his children, family and friends-especially on any golf course, beach or lake; and being involved in the Northeast Arkansas communities through church, chamber of commerce, area schools and colleges, and charitable organizations and events.
