I attended The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) where I played Football and ran Track for the Rebs. I also received my Master's in Accountancy while in school. After college, I worked for a Big Four Accounting Firm in Atlanta, KPMG. Within 5 months on the job, I realized sitting inside all day crunching numbers wasn't a place for a former D1 athlete. I moved back home to Mississippi and got my real estate license in August 2018. In my first year in the business, I managed to help over 120 buyers and sellers either find or sell a home. I was rookie of the year for the entire state of Mississippi during my first year. I believe in working harder for my clients and fighting for all of their desires and needs. I am very active in the community and well known in my market. I'm the agent that goes out and finds exactly what you are looking for even if it's not on market, THAT'S RIGHT, I LITERALLY GO OUT AND DOOR KNOCK NEIGHBORHOODS FOR MY BUYERS TO SEE IF ANY SELLERS ARE LOOKING TO SELL A HOME IN THE DESIRED AREA MY CLIENT WANTS TO BE IN.
