The process of buying with the Kettering Johnston Group

I help people’s dreams come true!

I realize it might sound corny, but that’s what I tell people when they ask what I do for a living. After all, home isn’t just where you go at the end of the day. It’s your sanctuary, where you seek refuge and find peace. It serves as the backdrop for gatherings and celebrations. It houses your art and furniture, showcasing your unique style. Why settle for anything less than the best?

With over 29,000 real estate agents in the greater Atlanta area, why should you choose me to help your real estate dreams come true? In a word, Results.  I invite you to read on for a preview of how I help clients achieve their desired results, and why my clients keep coming back and referring their friends and family.



INTEGRITY - Protecting your best interests is my top priority. From our initial consultation through closing and beyond, your goals and dreams are my foremost concern, and the guidance I provide will be tailored toward achieving them. Simply put, it’s all about you!

PASSION - With a pastor-turned-military-officer for a father, and a real estate agent for a mother, I was born to serve. Helping people is in my DNA, and I derive my greatest satisfaction from helping people live out their dreams.

EDUCATION - When I bought my first home back in 2005, I had no clue what to expect. My agent was also a dear friend, but didn’t provide any education on the home buying process, and very little guidance along the way. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or selling your 100th home, I’ll be sure you have the information you need to feel comfortable with the process, and the guidance to make the best decisions for your needs.

CANDOR - "If you don’t love it, don’t buy it!" "When in doubt, go with your gut." "What you need is a good pizza and a cold beer." Many of my clients have come to love my key phrases, and find them helpful in guiding their home search. More importantly, they find that I’m not afraid to tell it like it is, regardless of the consequence.

EXPERIENCE - Helping hundreds of clients navigate the buying and selling process has really honed my skills, teaching me countless useful skills, habits and tactics which I deploy strategically to ensure the best possible outcome for my clients.

EXPERTISE - In addition to my experience in the field, I continually seek to expand my professional knowledge through classes and seminars. To ensure I always deliver the highest level of service to my clients, I have pursued and obtained the designations of Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) and Certified Negotiation Export (CNE).

TENACITY - In a market with such low inventory, we dig deeper to find the right opportunities, and leave no stone unturned when scouring the market for your ideal home. With the best homes often selling in a day, we have to be poised to move on a moment’s notice in order to capitalize on the best opportunities.

CHARITY - Helping out, giving back, paying it forward ... call it what you will, I believe in supporting worthy causes. That’s why a portion of every commission I earn is donated to New Story, which builds homes for those in need, sourcing labor and materials locally to further support the local economy. Please let me know if there’s a local charity near to your heart to which you’d like me to donate in your name.
