TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?  

From a young age, I have always had this crazy obsession with hunting and the outdoors. I remember as a little boy telling dad I was going to find a job that’d allow me to hunt every day. It was that deep desire to constantly be in the woods that led to my discovery of passive income and real estate investing through the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. I figured, if I could not find a job that would support my lifestyle, I would create it through acquiring real estate, businesses, and other assets. At 21, I was blessed to have met a couple mentors who helped me purchase my first duplex. That duplex lit a fire inside me that has not been extinguished since. After acquiring that first property, my new obsession became hunting for deals and dollars the same way I do deer and turkey. Fast forward to today, my passions remain the same. I still enjoy hunting in every sense of the word, but I also love teaching my friends, family and others about the possibilities that exist investing in local assets., along with creating opportunities for these people to partner alongside of me.

DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT?

Raising more money than our rival high school for our respective charities and having it announced at half time of the football game between the two schools.

IN YOUR OPINION, HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY? PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS YOU CAN.

In a culture constantly struggling to find time, I’ve seen firsthand what investing in real estate, businesses and other passive vehicles can do. One of my favorite forms of contribution involves giving my time to educate and it derives from two beliefs : 1. People would do more good if they only had more time and 2. Assets like those mentioned above are the key that unlocks the time freedom many yearn for.  With those two beliefs as my foundation, I’ve made it a part of my mission to share my story and passion with as many people as possible in hopes that it has as great an impact on their life as it has on mine. This is accomplished through thought leadership platforms such as co-organizing the Multifamily Investor Nation meetup in Charlotte, co-founding the Carolina’s Multifamily Network, and speaking at other local functions. Apart from this, I’m also a member of Back Creek Presbyterian Church

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES OR INTEREST?

Turkey, Deer, and Elk Hunting;  Flying; Playing Cards

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE THAT YOU STAND BY?

“You can have everything in life you want if only you’ll help enough other people get what they want.”

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS? 10 YEARS?

Personally, I am sitting on the front porch with my beautiful Godly wife and wild kids enjoying the country life. I am working with and surrounded by people I admire, pursuing a life-long passion, and life is good. As much as I enjoy my time at the office, I have designed a life that allows me the flexibility to attend all the important family functions, ballgames and spend plenty of time in the woods .

Professionally, White Real Estate Investment Firm continues to move at God’s speed…literally.  One of our core beliefs is that our work is our ministry.  Our number one objective of growing the company to $100m in commercial assets is secondary to ensuring we accomplish our number one priority  – having a Kingdom impact. As our firm grows, we continue to look for opportunities to vertically integrate operations with in-house property management and construction companies to ensure greater stewardship over the assets our investors have entrusted us with. By partnering with God and being faithful to the cause of elevating the growth of those around us through servant leadership, we believe the growth of our bottom line will continue to take care of itself.  Switching gears, White Oak Property Group continues to acquire premier hunting land across the US. A project I’m really excited about is our team has created an outdoor hunting show primarily as a channel to advertise the land we have available to our niche clients. Finally, aside from the real estate companies, we’ve introduced the White Group, which provides our family of investors the additional opportunity to invest in local businesses alongside us.
