Meet Maddy Canty, Dallas Industrial Market Analyst and new addition to the HLC team!

Maddy grew up in San Antonio, Texas in an active family with her parents and twin sisters. When they weren’t in school, she and her sisters spent A LOT of their time playing competitive soccer.

What brought you to HLC?
I found out about Holt Lunsford Commercial through one of my mentors who connected me with Canon Shoults. It started with a phone interview and now I’m part of the team! The things that really attracted me to HLC were the people, the values system and the positive company culture.

How do you hope to grow here?
I want to learn, learn, LEARN everything I can! I am just absorbing it all and learning is my primary focus right now. Ben Wallace has been a great mentor and influence, he has been able to achieve so much in a short amount of time here at HLC.

Learn, obviously! Also, customer service and having fun – I want to stay interested and enjoy what I’m doing each day.

I guess maybe orange, I’m happy while still being a little reserved. I’m a warm, positive person, and I care about others and about how I make them feel.

How do you like to spend your free time?
My sports background is in my blood – I enjoy running and have been running 5 miles a day regularly, my goal is to run a marathon. I also like to hang out with my friends and spend time with my sisters. 

What or who inspires you?
My parents. I want to prove myself to them and make them proud. They have been so supportive of me, and I want to show them that because of them, now I can make it on my own.

Navigate Netflix.

What super power would you like to have?
Flying, over traffic especially!
