I have lived in Auburn since 1997 and can’t think of any other place that I would rather be. I truly love Auburn and enjoying helping other people relocate here. My wife, Charity Edwards also works with me at Prudential. She is the office manager and she keeps me in line. I have been a full time real estate agent since 2004. I enjoy working with computers, the newest gadgets, home theater, motocross, Auburn football, and taking trips to my two favorite places in the world (besides Auburn) Jackson Hole, WY. and Las Vegas, NV.
Real Estate is a full time career and I truly enjoy going to work every morning! How many people do you know can say that? I consider myself a tech savvy agent working with the latest technology to help create new relationships with buyers and sellers on a daily basis. Today’s technology is evolving at a very rapid rate. I feel like this is one of my biggest advantages over agents in our area. Technology has never been more important in the real estate industry. Those that are able to keep up will benefit greatly in today’s market.
My cutting edge mentality, drive, determination for success and passion for the business has helped me create a strong business that ultimately benefits my clients on a daily basis. I firmly believe in honesty, being available, being respectful, hard working and communication are absolutely necessary to achieve any goal in life. Annie and I both strive for perfection and making clients for life. Our team approach is what makes us unique and extremely valuable to our clients.
After graduating from Auburn, I returned home to my family’s dairy farm to work. During that time, I met my husband Brycen, who is a co-founder of Ecological Insulation and a builder in Auburn/Opelika. He encouraged me to get my real estate license, not realizing what he thought would be my hobby would turn into my favorite career! I currently serve on the Board for the Lee County Association of Realtors. Education is important to me, and I have earned the Associate Broker, Graduate Realtor Institute, and Accredited Buyer Representative designations.
Currently I am working on my Certified Residential Specialist, one of the most elite designations in the industry. Since I have been in the business, I have consistently been one of the top agents in my company.
We have a son who is a toddler and two chocolate labs. We enjoy living in Auburn/Opelika so much! Brycen enjoys woodworking, cycling, mountain biking, and kayaking. I enjoying reading, running, and gardening. We both love to cook, as well as go out to eat to fine dining! Listening to live music is also a favorite hobby. Lee County provides all of this and more.
Ryan and I decided to become a real estate team in 2009 to combine our talents to better serve our clients and grow our business. We promise to serve our clients and treat them how WE would want to be treated!
