About Franklin

I recently learned that the “About Me” page is the 2nd most visited page on a professional services business website. Well, after 10 years of the “I like Starbucks, Rib-eyes, and iStuff, I thought it may be a good idea to share what’s really going on in my world.

That said, here’s a little bit “About Me” in list form. True to the spirit of how I’ve written the blog for 10ish years, I’ve mixed the personal and professional in no certain order (other than item #1. 🙂  Truth told, to me, it’s all one big, fun, amazing life that’s only possible through others.

-Husband of an amazing wife, and dad of three beautiful daughters (11 & 7-year-old twins)!

-Named the #5 Top Producing Team in North America for Coldwell Banker Real Estate Brand. – 2013.

-2018 – The Neighborhood Company was introduced. I learned early in my career the true value of a home is the neighborhood. Recently, I came upon this advice, that’s also an ancient proverb, “Don’t Buy The House; Buy The Neighborhood.” The Neighborhood Company was born. This will be our brand as we expand to other Keller Williams Market Centers throughout the United States.

-December 28, 2018 – Keller Williams International granted our local partnership group franchise approval for Columbia, SC – ‘Downtown.’  **B-I-G  D-A-Y!**

-I really don’t have any true “hobbies,” but very much enjoy riding around in the golf cart, hanging out at the neighborhood pool (or anywhere in the neighborhood, really) with my family and friends, and overall just being social in and around Downtown Columbia, SC. Other than that, the job is the hobby. I love what I do and who I do it with.

-Overjoyed to be a corporate partner of The Junior League of Columbia, giving over $100,000. to date.

-Thankful and humbled to be the all-time, top-producing REALTOR serving the Columbia, South Carolina real estate market.*
