A little about me

and why I love real estate

I’m Joe Brumfield, REALTOR® with South and Company Properties. I am a husband, father of three, and an 18 year active Army veteran. My family and I have relocated about ten times, living from Hawaii to North Carolina and many places in between. We certainly appreciate what if feels like to move and the challenges you can expect when buying or selling a home.

I enjoy hunting and fishing with my kids and working in the outdoors on our property. I try to maintain an active lifestyle. Running, biking, lifting weights, and shooting in preparations for SWAT competitions with army buddies against some of the best departments in the State.

Why I enjoy real estate

Real estate is the people business, the trust business. Getting to help those who are trusting me with what is often their largest asset is a tremendous responsibility. The kind of responsibility that gives me purpose worth waking up and getting after it every day for them. I am happiest when I am engaged as a member of a team working together to achieve a common objective. Serving as a REALTOR® gives me the opportunity help people accomplish their goals and work to fix the issues that are sure to come up along the way. Just as I have my entire adult life in the military.

“Our experience with South and Co. has been outstanding. Jessica assisted us with buying our new home and selling our old one, and we are so happy that we partnered with her and South and Co. for both endeavors. Jessica and the rest of her team at South and Co. are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. They guided us through the whole process as both buyers and sellers, and were easily able to answer any questions we had along the way. Most importantly, they were so warm and friendly and genuinely cared about our goals and needs - it was like partnering with close friends or family. We highly recommend for anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home or land to partner with South and Co. and see what they can do for you! We believe that you will be every bit as satisfied with your experience as we were with ours. Thanks again, Jessica, Mike, and everyone at South and Co., for making our buying/selling experience so great!”
