The founder and president of 901 Properties, Brook is our fearless leader! This businessman, entrepreneur and realtor loves Memphis real estate.
Why? Because Brook loves Memphis. A native Memphian, Brook has proudly lived all over the 901, including Germantown, Collierville and Midtown. He also owns and manages rental properties all over town.
Brook is a seasoned realtor with experience in buying and selling residential homes and investment properties. Because he’s also a straight-talking businessman and entrepreneur, he’s an ideal partner and consultant. (Before founding 901 Properties, Brook worked at FedEx and International Paper.)
Brook enjoys hanging out with his wife and three children, tinkering around his house (Brook is very handy) and volunteering with his church’s youth group.
