Get To Know the Owners of Professional Electric

Professional Electric first opened for business in 1997. We’re honored to have grown into what we are today and to continue serving Mobile and Baldwin County with top-notch electrical workmanship. Our goal has always been to offer unmatched quality while giving you more bang for your buck. Today, we’ll get to know a little about our owners, Richard and Sarita Tanner.

Married for nearly 15 years, Richard and Sarita live in Tanner Williams, Alabama (about 40 minutes west of Mobile). While Richard is originally from Tanner Williams, Sarita is from Theodore, Alabama. They have three children and love to spend time with family and friends.

Richard went to trade school while in high school and received his journeyman’s license. After working for a local organization for a couple years, he decided to get his Master Electrician license. He succeeded on his first attempt and was the youngest Master in the state for a while. He started his own company in 1997 and has been working and growing ever since. Determination coupled with a strong work ethic has proven to be a recipe for success. Now in their 20th year in business, they have been blessed with a great staff and wonderful customer base. Richard and Sarita pride themselves in providing great services at a reasonable price. The intention is to create not just repeat customers but “cheerleader” customers… those that will continue to call us for assistance and refer us to their friends and family.

In addition to assisting in the day to day operations, Sarita also sells real estate for Better Homes & Gardens. Richard prides himself on being a hard worker. Some say he suffers from OCD, but he sees it as a gift. In his words: “There’s nothing wrong with being neat!” Being a man of integrity in this ever-changing world is probably the most important thing to Richard. He believes that one’s character will take one far in life.

When they’re not running their companies, Richard and Sarita love spending time with family, traveling, boating, and riding motorcycles. Richard’s hobbies include golfing and diving, while Sarita enjoys gardening or crafting! They both love to work out and stay healthy.

When asked about their favorite places to eat in the Mobile area, Richard prefers Dreamland and Newk’s; and Sarita prefers Pour Baby and Dumbwaiter- although they both agree that Bonefish is their absolute favorite! Going to the movie theater together is also a date night staple.
