Bud grew up in a large family in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He was the 2nd oldest of seven children. Bud attended high school at Franklin Road Christian School and graduated from West Coast Baptist College (2012) located in California. While attending college, he met Chera Mainous, who would become his wife in 2015. She is originally from Central Ohio and he soon moved there to start his family. Bud's background prior to real estate includes working for a custom home builder. His desire to be in real estate stems from his interest in housing and helping others. Bud is excited to be apart of the RE/MAX family and the Tyler Griffith team where his focus will be Columbus and its growing suburbs.
