Interested in a career in real estate? Read the stories behind how these professionals got their start.

“I started my career in the banking business and after several years of that, I grew tired of managing people that didn’t share my vision. I then went into the mortgage business and starting investing in real estate. After acquiring multiple rental properties and teaching others how to build real estate portfolios, several people asked me to be their real estate agent and not just their lender. After hearing this from various clients, I decided to get my real estate license and help others do what I loved to do.” Casey Taylor, MBA, Licensed Real Estate Agent and Mortgage Broker


“Growing up, it was just my mom and I. I watched her grow her career and become a very successful branch manager/commercial escrow officer. Her start from nothing was so inspiring. After school, I decided to follow suit. After 34 years in this business, I can still say that her hard work and loyalty to those around her still inspires me. I love what I do and the title and escrow business has been wonderful to me and my family.” Craig Leonard, Vice President of Pioneer Title Agency
