Being part of the Tybee community has given Brent further appreciation for the Island’s schools, parks and lifestyle. These days, when he’s not working, you can find Brent enjoying all that Tybee has to offer - kiteboarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, biking the island, or surfing. An avid surfer, Brent is a proud volunteer for Surfer's for Autism.


He's a member of the National Association of Realtors, a member of the Savannah Board of Realtors, and a Licensed Broker in the State of Georgia.
