Ethan's Professional Background
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Process Engineering (Industrial & Systems) from Mississippi State University, was an intern at Toyota Mfg, and worked as a Production Coordinator for a innovative Government Contractor in Starkville. I started learning Real Estate with an amazing family after moving to Volusia County FL in 2017 doing Investment deals, Traditional Real Estate, and everything in-between. We had our first child in 2020 and decided to move back to Starkville, Mississippi to be close to Family in 2021. We have retained relationships & licensing in Volusia County Florida to still be able to service the area and are excited to branch out into the Mississippi counties of Choctaw, Clay, Lowndes, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Webster and Winston!
I’ve been involved with 31 Traditional Residential Transactions (4.8 mil total vol), 29 Investor Deals (Incl. Foreclosure, REO, Wholesale, Seller Carry-Back Note), Oversaw $600k worth of renovations, and Managed 127 properties mixed commercial & residential leases. So rest assured I’ve seen a lot, handled a lot, and am ready to be your Solutions Engineer.
My wife and I love to Travel the world. We even started our own Travel Agency, Journey Anywhere Travel (opens link in a new window). Come check us out for your next adventure :). We have both been extensively involved in missions work, with an emphasis in SE Asia. [Ask us about or summers serving overseas, we love to reminisce.] If we are not traveling, you can find us on New Smyrna Beach enjoying the sand and sea.
Why "Cozy Hosea [Ho-Z] Homes"?
My wife and I purchased our first home, a 1922 Craftsman-Style Bungalow. We have a Passion to invest in Young Adults and hosted college-aged students on a weekly basis at our home. It wasn’t long until one-by-one they would comment on how “Cozy” it felt. The name stuck and has been affectionately called “The Cozy Hosea” ever since.
You will see the outline of our house proudly displayed in our logo. We serve our clients so they too can experience their own Cozy Hosea Home!
