About Cole

I grew up in Enid, Oklahoma and first came to Branson as a teenager in 1997. I fell in love with the Ozarks and these hills immediately became our home. I’m a graduate of Branson High School and earned my degree in Management from Missouri State University in 2007. For 15 years, I worked in Branson’s entertainment business both as a singer and in management. After marrying the love of my life and having a couple of awesome kiddos, I decided that it was time to move away from show business. I started Buyers Only, a real estate firm working exclusively for buyers, in 2009. It was the worst year that the real estate industry had seen in decades, but I was determined. Within a few years, I had represented dozens of buyers in the purchase of a home here in the Ozarks. I represented more buyers than any other agent* in the Tri-Lakes area. I was able to go from 0 to among the top 6% of agents in the area in less than four years.

Much more important than any statistic, however, is the way I serve my clients. I have been blessed to meet some great people, and I make it my first priority to serve them to the best of my ability. Many folks have been kind enough to share some positive feedback. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have worked for some amazing folks.

When it comes to working with buyers, my philosophy is simple: Buyers don’t need a salesman, they need an advocate. I strive to help my buyer client find the best possible property and negotiate the best value.

In the fall of 2012, I was offered an incredible opportunity to become a partner at Foggy River Realty – one of the most respected and successful real estate firms in the area. My focus remains the same – providing expert advice and first-class service to my clients, always representing them with honesty and integrity. As a result of that commitment, my business has continued to grow, and I am currently ranked among the top 2% of local Realtors with over $13M in annual sales volume.

My wife, Dana, and I live in Walnut Shade along with our three children. When we’re not working or chasing our kids around to their activities, our family loves to spend time boating and floating on Table Rock Lake or enjoying some fun area attractions. We are members of James River Church in Ozark. I believe that God has truly blessed me and my family, and it is my mission to honor Him in the way that I do business.
