“WystWynd brings us valuable experience from other developments. Ric knows what sells and what appeals to people. The value of our condominiums at Alysha’s Vineyard has gone up nearly $100,000 in 7 years. Ric knows residences. His master plans use cul-de-sacs with homes situated into curves rather than straight rows of facing houses. You could squeeze in more houses, but it’s a balance because we find that sells slower for a lower price. It says a lot that three builders have bought from us. These homes are creatively designed to optimize light and openness.”

“Ric designed the units for our Town Home subdivision. We had several renderings and he was great to work with on this project.”

“When we wanted to add more square footage to our home, our builder advised us to contact Ric Mixon at WystWynd. It was inspired by working from home that we wanted to develop plans to expand. Ric is very thorough and patient, brings years of experience, and he has great ideas.”

“Ric Mixon is living proof that a good architect is a profit center and not an expense. In every project, Ric has saved more than his fee by reducing site development and construction costs. Beautiful design, finished on time is the bonus.”

Victor Jernigan

“We’ve been working with WystWynd Designs since a contractor referred us to them in 2008. Ric Mixon has very creative ideas to transform an outdated or drab exterior and give it curb appeal with glass fronts, canopies, or new roof lines. A building that is appealing does increase foot traffic because it increases trust. Curb appeal on the outside reflects credibility, a bank that is forward thinking, keeping up with the times and technologies on the inside. Ric Mixon also did the architectural plans for our home. Ric brings good ideas to the table. Definitely.”

“As a surveyor and civil engineer, I had a working relationship with Ric on client projects. If you plan to do a renovation, it just makes sense to get an expert. A renovation is very expensive and complicated. Working with Ric and WystWynd can save you time and money…especially if you only want to do it once. When our renovation was done, people have absolutely loved it.

David Harbin
Civil Engineer

“Our experience working with Ric was very satisfying. We started with many ideas and a clear vision of the home we wanted to build. Ric translated our thoughts into a design that is suited to our indoor-outdoor lifestyle and takes advantage of a unique lakeside location. The home is functional, fits our way of life, and is beautiful to look at. He did an outstanding job.”

“We have done several projects with WystWynd Designs. Ric and his staff are creative and great to work with. Ric began designing communities for my father’s construction and development company. Likewise, as a second-generation contractor and developer, I have continued with Ric and his team to produce top selling projects in Knoxville. Together we have a winning team!”

Gary Duncan

“Ric Mixon met or exceeded all our design goals and completed all the work on schedule and budget…I have been very impressed with his unique creativity and how he used he is creative skills in our ‘one-of a kind design.’ I would recommend his company for any architectural services your organization would require.”

“My wife and are both engineers, so we wanted to do it right. It was a complex project with an added elevator, a music studio with its own entrance, and a sunroom with a 17-foot ceiling and wall of glass. When people come inside, they are all wowed. They say it’s unbelievable. Do I trust Ric and would I recommend him? Well, I’ve referred Ric for classified government projects. We provide the necessary information for him to propose the solutions. So, yes, I trust Ric, and he is easy to work with.”
