For over 44 years, I have served the Greater Hattiesburg Area, including multi-generation family members in search of the perfect home and their real estate investment needs. During this time I was an owner and managing broker for over 40 years and am now working under the direction of my grandaughter, Lara Thrash, who purchased the company from Don and I and is now our broker/owner. This frees me up to have more time to work directly with my clients. Since 1975, I have helped my clients achieve their real estate goals while actively helping to grow my community through various volunteer leadership positions. Experience, knowledge, and reputation create an unbeatable combination to provide you top of the line service, which is my goal with each client.

    I look forward to continuing to assist with your real estate needs!
