I have been a full time licensed real estate agent for almost eight years. I graduated in 1999 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham having earned a B.S. degree in business management and finance. I have three sons: Ford and Brady (twins) and their younger brother, Walker.
As a child, I developed a passion for the outdoors and for all sports, including fishing and hunting. In later years, I assisted with the oversight of the family farm, involving pond, timber and wildlife management, as well as habitat improvement and cabin/barn construction. Those experiences contribute to my fulfillment with buying and selling timber, farming, and hunting properties. Making use of Quality Deer Management (QDM) practices, I can assist landowners with wildlife concerns.
During my real estate career, I have worked with clients in the selling and acquisition of thousands of acres of land. Much satisfaction comes from helping families locate their dream properties. With my extensive network of buyers and sellers in the Southeast, no property is too big or small to receive dedicated attention.
Currently, I am utilizing several marketing strategies to help locate unique properties for sale as well as identifying buyers who are looking for timber, farm, or hunting land. In addition to marketing on real estate websites, I am involved in several civic organizations, real estate groups, and networking groups which allow me to meet potential buyers. I also utilize social media not only to advertise properties but meet potential buyers. I am a big believer in investing in my career to set me apart from the competition.
