What brought you to HLC?
My dad works in real estate, so I grew up around it. That sparked my interest in the industry, and I got my real estate license when I started looking for a job. I met with Tyler Howarth and Holden Lunsford and things went from there. I was initially attracted to HLC because of the values and Christian-based culture which is in line with my personal values and beliefs. And I knew I was going to get to work with a bunch of great people!

How do you hope to grow at HLC?
I want to expand my knowledge of real estate and become an expert in Tenant Representation in the Dallas area. I also want to grow personally.

What about your role here at HLC most excites or interests you?

Which HLC value resonates the most with you and why?
