Tell us a little bit about your background…

I was born in Gainesville, GA, but grew up in Lilburn. I graduated from Berkmar High School in 1988 then, graduated from Brewton Parker College and Saint Leo University with a BA in Criminal Justice. In 1991, I enlisted in the USAF as a Security Policeman. I was stationed with Moody AFP in Valdosta, GA, and shortly after was deployed to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia to serve in Operation Desert Storm. After serving 4 years in the USAF, I was honorably discharged and began work& at the United States Penitentiary in Atlanta as a Correctional

Officer. After the horrific events of 9/11/2001, I applied for the position of a Federal Air Marshal and was hired in 2002. I served a total of 27 years in the Federal government and officially retired in November of 2019 and this is where I begin my new career in real estate.

What made you choose to go into the real estate career field?

I have always had an interest in Real Estate and I look forward to meeting and getting to know the residents of Walton and Barrow counties. I look forward to helping people find the home of their dreams.

What are you looking most forward to about your career choice?

I have bought and sold homes using Progressive Realty in the past and was very happy with them. I’ve always preferred using the local brokerages, because I feel they truly care about the local community.

Lastly, why choose Mark Smith when there are so many other choices?

I am a man of honesty and integrity and will always put my clients above all else.
