Hi there I'm Brent!

Brent became a licensed REALTOR® in February of 2005, As the grandson of Mary Kelley, the first female Real Estate Broker in the Phenix City, AL area, carries with him a strong desire to succeed through representing his clients with passion and a vast knowledge that only comes from experience in the business — just like his grandmother. Born and raised right here in the Phenix City/Smiths Station, AL area, Brent’s determination and aspiration to be the best at whatever he does was evident even as a young man in his day in and day out commitment to baseball from little league to college ball at Columbus State. Being licensed shortly before the downturn in 2008, Brent’s determination afforded him a successful beginning to a career that requires constant adaptation. He committed himself to success early on and had a resolution to be named among the top Realtors in the area which became his reality in 2009 and every year since. Brent specializes in land sales and homes with acreage, but has sold anything from a graveyard to commercial businesses! A few of Brent’s favorite things are spending time with his 2 daughters [Berklie and Blakely], fishing, any kind of hunting, watching baseball and Auburn sports, working out, skiing, date nights with his wife, Caitlin, days spent in the country, Reece’s, his 3 dogs [Huck, Honey, and Chief], and traveling to new places.
