Where did you grow up? Bremen, GA

Growing up, what did you want to be? A doctor

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? Reading a book or going shopping

If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? Grant Cardone. I’d love to pick his brain. I love rags to riches stories.

Where is your favorite place to hang out? Truck and Tap in Woodstock. I love the concept of craft beer with a different food truck every day of the week.

What do you love most about the industry? I love helping people achieve their dream of homeownership.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? By being not only my clients’ agent, but also being a good friend who is reliable, honest, and has my clients’ best interest at heart.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Working all the different elements of a contract into harmony. There are a lot of moving parts and sometimes it doesn’t go as smoothly as you’d like.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? CE courses, meet and greets, monthly board meetings and restaurants

What has been your greatest accomplishment? In real estate, helping my 62-year-old mom purchase her very first home

What was the last good movie you saw or book you read? The Shack for a movie and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck for a book. The Shack made me take time to appreciate my family more, to not always focus on work, but to be present in life with them. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck made me focus on me and less on others. Set goals for yourself, not because of someone else. You can only please yourself, there are going to be a lot of naysayers. Ignore them and press on.

What is your favorite restaurant? The Optimist… such a great seafood selection. YUM!

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Atlanta? Its a toss up. The King and Queen towers or the Bank of America Plaza, but there are so many more.

What kind of car do you drive? A Chevy Suburban and sometimes a Toyota Prius.

Smartphone or paper? Both – I’m a visual person. I need to see it.

What is your favorite city after Atlanta? Savannah. The history, the art, the architecture, the food… I could go on and on.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry? Find your why, always be grateful and never stop learning

What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app? Audible. With so much time in the car, its good to be able to listen to books to help me grow in my business.

Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter? @TomFerry, @scofflawbrewing
