I grew up in Halls, TN and attended the University of Memphis for college. After completing my degree, I stayed in Memphis where I currently live with my wife Leigh and our three children, Runyan, Bylar, and Emme Leigh; or as they are most commonly referred to as - R, The Beez, and Smash. In my spare time, I enjoying coaching lacrosse and basketball, golf, fishing, and working out. I like to spend time with my family outdoors, explore our city, and enjoy all that Memphis and the surrounding areas have to offer. The diversity and culture and history that hits you wherever you go make Memphis such a great place to have a family. It also makes for a phenomenal place to grow our business. Ive been in the mortgage industry for over 15 years, originating and managing. My favorite part of the job is cultivating long lasting relationships with originators, realtors, builders, and other industry folks. Relationships are a lot of what it comes down to in the business; relationships with borrowers and the relationships of people in our group. The Southern States Group is always growing and it is a great pleasure to watch our people knock every goal out of the park.
