Welcome to Connell Landing Realty
I am a Pike County Alabamian who grew up on our family’s working cattle farm. From a young age, my lifelong pursuit has been enjoying the outdoors and working to enhance property.
My grandfather instilled in me the love of growing the finest cows we could and taking great pride in this concept. It turns out this was a great way to learn practical management skills that benefit both the land and cattle. Like many other farm families, we did most of the farm repairs in house, so when terraces or ponds on the farm needed work, I learned by immersion. After my father’s passing, I went into excavation on my own. My dad always taught me to respect my elders, so I hired mostly older people who had the most experience. I then became a student of my employees, and great things were accomplished for many years.
I have always given God the glory for blessing me with this career path and for always placing the right person in my path every single time no matter the obstacle. This choice often placed me in pine plantations where I began helping manage stands of timber with controlled burning practices and the planning and construction of internal road systems for each property.
This set me up for a unique skill set that has been invaluable in preparing me to not only guide others on their quest to find their right property, but also the most effective ways to set up their new property for wildlife and timber management. I have always believed in the quality of the people and land here in my home region.
Reach out to me and tell me your goals, so I can better serve you.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are three primary titles in the real estate industry which include a real estate agent, a realtor, and a real estate or land broker. A real estate agent is a professional who has passed the required real estate classes and licensing exams in the state where they intend to work. A realtor is a real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of Realtors. Realtors must abide by the association’s standards and code of ethics. And finally, brokers are individuals who have continued their education and obtained their broker license. The biggest difference is that a broker can work on their own, while an agent must work under a licensed agent.
A real estate agent is an industry professional who serves as the facilitator of real estate transactions. They are ultimately responsible for bringing buyers and sellers together. A realtor is a category that can include agents, brokers, salespeople, appraisers, and other real estate professionals. Realtors are bound by a code of ethics and must be experts in their fields. Real estate land brokers may work independently or start their own brokerage and employ other real estate agents. A broker generally has more training than an agent and handles some of the more technical parts of a transaction.
