What made you interested in real estate?
I have been interested in real estate since I was a kid. My grandfather has been a REALTOR® for 40 years, and I grew up going to his office. I thought it was so cool that he had tons of giant signs with his name on them. My dad was in commercial real estate, my aunt is a real estate agent in Austin, TX, my other grandfather owns and leases real estate, and my great grandmother was a real estate agent. I guess it’s in the blood.
What’s your favorite thing about living in Tuscaloosa?
I love Tuscaloosa because it’s a college town. It’s full of energy, but during the summers and winter it slows down as the college students leave, and you get the whole town to yourself.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a REALTOR®. When I was around four years old I drew my grandfather a picture of me with a sold sign that said, “when I grow up I want to be a REALTOR® like you.”
How do you want people to remember you?
I want to be remembered as someone that when you came in contact with me, your day was brightened. Whether it’s a joke or compliment, I love to make people smile.
What’s a goal you have for yourself that you want to accomplish in the next year?
Within the next year, I want to have my real estate license, and help my team sell more property in whatever way I can.
Name a few of your daily habits.
I attend classes every morning. I run signs out and purchase 1,000,000 stamps. I run and play pickup basketball because what else would a tall person do?
What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
I’m happiest when I am hanging out with my guys, just shootin the breeze, talking sports, and doing nothing important.
What are some causes you care about?
I am an upperclassmen small group leader for First Baptist Church’s College Ministry, and I am on their leadership team.
What would be your personal motto?
“Love God. Love people.”
