Brian Griffin
Brian entered adulthood as a young entrepreneur. Attending Central Florida College in 2006, he graduated (top of the class) with a certificate in cosmetology. His passion for making the world a more beautiful place was the fuel that drove his success. Brian knew what it took to hustle, by opening his first salon at 19 and becoming his own CEO of a small, independent chain.

He later was presented with a fantastic opportunity to further his success in management and sales by becoming one of the nation’s leading Regional VPs for a Forbes Top 100 company. He discovered his love for numbers and he genuinely loves helping people understand the investment behind the purchase, whether it is buying or selling in real estate, or holding your hand through the mortgage process.

Utilizing his passion for people and his newfound love for numbers, he decided to invest in real estate. After meeting with a local agent in the central Florida area, who he would say wasn’t cut out for the job, his brain started spinning, and the light bulb started to glow.

"Hey… If they can do it, so can I." -Brian D. Griffin
