- Born and raised in the midlands of South Carolina in Calhoun County, Tom has always had a great appreciation for the outdoors. From his earliest memories of riding around his family's farm with his father and grandfather, he was taught to appreciate the outdoors, be a steward to the land and preserve the natural beauty of our wonderful state. He attended the University of South Carolina and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Charleston Southern University. Tom later attended the Charleston School of Law and spent twelve years working in the legal field in the beautiful city of Charleston. After spending all that time in an office, he jumped at the opportunity to get back in the field and joined the team at National Land Realty. His legal background brings a unique skill set and excellent negotiation skills to the land brokerage business, enabling him to better serve his clients.When not busy selling or finding the right property for his clients, you can find Tom hunting, working bird dogs, supporting high school football on Friday’s in the fall, watching Gamecock baseball in the spring and last but certainly not least, trying to keep up with his daughters, Ellie and Mary Collins.
