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. ūüôā¬† 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 (8 & 4 year old twins)!

-Started a team with Amanda Quick Payne & Amy Ackerman Cartin in 2012 with Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS. Elizabeth Woodring Ross joined,”The F|A Network,” a few years later.

-Multiple times the Top-Producing Realtor and/or team in the Midlands of South Carolina real estate market.

-Joined Keller Williams Real Estate in 2014.

-Here in 2018 – The Franklin Jones & Amanda Payne Real Estate Network has become The Neighborhood Company. 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.

-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 Leauge of Columbia, giving over $50,000. to date.
