As we transitioned out of leadership at Grace Hills, I surveyed the things I’ve been interested in and, for a while now, real estate has been at the top of the list.
I took the course, passed the test, and have joined the team at Collier & Associates.
Why real estate?
First, I’m wired for business. While many people know me as a pastor, I’ve also spent the last fifteen years involved in all kinds of online entrepreneurial opportunities, from re-launching the Pastors.com website on behalf of Pastor Rick Warren and Saddleback Church to growing a successful web design and marketing business.
I even wrote a book about how the church could utilize social media marketing to spread its message further and ran a successful affiliate marketing business. Real estate fits within that wheelhouse. I’m fascinated with the Northwest Arkansas market and the incredible opportunities it affords people.
Second, I love people. Yes, I’m an introvert, but that simply means that I like to dive deep with individuals. I want to help people figure out their financial pathway forward. I want to make buying or selling properties less intimidating. I want to make real estate less scary for everybody.
I envision sitting down with the young couple, the single mom, or those nearing retirement to talk not only about what they want in a home, but how a mortgage and home equity factor into their overall financial health.
I want to thank Terri Chadd and Stuart Collier for offering some fantastic advice, and I want to especially thank Angela Kirk Cox who has been my biggest fan and coach, encouraging me to pursue this new pathway with a passion.
I’m looking forward to diving into this new career and helping as many people as I can with buying and selling properties, but more importantly, with achieving greater financial health and freedom along the way.
Yes, I’ll still have a ministry. I’m going to be launching something new called The Reflectionary, with weekly reflections on the texts prescribed by the Revised Common Lectionary. It will be an encouragement for pastors and a resource for everyone who is interested in spiritual things.
If I can help you in this new capacity, feel free to reach out! My cell is 479-426-6575 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. And thank you, friends, for your encouragement and your prayers!
