As an agent and teacher, Troy believes preparation, organization, and creating relationships were vital components of the game.  In training new agents, he instills those same concepts. He doesn't believe in mediocrity or excuses.

Versatility when dealing with clients is vital.  Throughout training classes new agents learn to read and interpret non-verbal communication (body language and social styles).

However, diligence is a trait that we will work tirelessly to instill in our agents so that we are always putting our clients/prospects first.

Troy has two children and is an avid sooner sports fan.

“The road to success is always under construction.”
