Meet Our Agents
About Brian: Brian worked in the hospitality industry in 2010 when his good friend Thomas Elrod first tried to convince him to get into real estate. Brian didn’t know much about real estate and was hesitant about only relying on commission when he didn’t have the skills or training to be a real estate agent. Afraid of taking a risk, he decided to continue working in the hospitality industry and took on a management position for another company.
His Journey: After realizing his career wasn’t a good fit, Brian finally reached out to Thomas to see what a position on the team would look like. In 2014, Brian joined the team as an Inside Sales Associate prospecting, setting appointments, and learning the ins and outs of real estate. By the end of the year, his hard work and determination led him to become the Inside Sales Manager for the team. Brian continued to hustle for the next three years until he finally felt ready to start his career as a real estate agent.
His Results: In April 2017, Brian officially became an Outside Sales Agent for High Performance Real Estate Advisors and sold 58 houses by the end of the year. In 2018, he sold 106 houses and is projected to sell 130 this year. Brian now has the experience and confidence to reach his goals and lead our team as one of our top agents.

Daniel knew in order to get the proper training and excel in his career, he needed to join a team.
