In 2010 Dan saw how obtaining his real estate license could benefit his business and attended the Champions School of Real Estate obtaining his Texas Real Estate Salesperson license. Since he was new to real estate agency Dan decided to join a national brokerage in hopes of gaining more training and support. After several months, he was dissatisfied with the value provided by Re/Max and the high monthly fees with large commission splits. He moved his license to work under a brokerage operated by a real estate investor. Although the monthly fees and commission splits were less, Dan was still dissatisfied with the value provided. He heard about 100% commission brokerages but they seemed “too good to be true” and a bit sketchy. In 2012, an agent Dan worked with at the other brokerages called him and encouraged him to join Fathom Realty. Based on his colleague’s recommendation, the 100% commission, and low monthly fees he made the move to Fathom. Although he made the move for the 100% commission, Dan was pleasantly surprised to learn that the values and philosophy of Fathom were matched his values and beliefs. The technology and training provided was also a pleasant surprise.
In 2014 Dan and Debbie relocated to the Austin area for to help care for a special needs grandchild. Dan’s real estate investment mentor learned Dan had moved to the Austin area. He had taken on a real estate investment club and asked Dan to facilitate the monthly meetings of the Austin Real Estate Association. A few months later the District Director for Fathom Realty in Austin relocated to Florida and Dan was selected to serve the Central Texas Fathom agents as their District Director.
Dan enjoys serving the Fathom agents in Central Texas. He prides himself on being very responsive to agents when they reach out for help. Serving as a District Director allows him to improve his knowledge through monthly training sessions, reviewing/approving every Fathom‐Central Texas transaction, and helping agents work through transactional complications. He also enjoys mentoring new agents to help them develop successful businesses. He continues to serve buyers, sellers, and investors as an active Realtor®.
Dan always has time to talk about his favorite subject, real estate. He enjoys hunting, fishing, and working the land at the family farm. He is a member of the First Baptist Church of Lexington where he serves on the Worship and Facilities teams. Dan is still active as a Paramedic working part‐time for Lee County EMS and serves as a Firefighter/Paramedic with the Blue Volunteer Fire Department.
For the last FOUR years in a row - Inc. 500 has included Fathom Realty as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the nation - from all industries! And most recently, we were named as the fastest growing privately held residential real estate company in the nation. Although that is wonderful recognition for us, it hasn't changed who we are or what has fueled our growth. Our motto certainly isn't original, "Whoever wants to be great must become a servant," but more and more people say they find it refreshing. As a company, the fact is we still simply exist to serve. If we get that part right, we believe growth will continue to take care of itself.
What does it look like at Fathom to "serve?" By providing our real estate professionals with support, technology, and training while encouraging, mobilizing, and equipping them to serve you, we have an atmosphere that considers others more important than ourselves. After all, we want you to experience the highest level of integrity and service when you need it most: when you are making a real estate decision.
Our goal is to ensure you are thoroughly served throughout your Fathom experience. Perhaps you can go out and do the same for someone that needs it as well? Let's change the world together (at least our corners of it!).
Thank you for placing your trust in Fathom Realty and God bless!
"Whoever wants to be great must become a servant.” Matthew 20:26
