Darrell graduated from the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi and after graduation, he started his own appraisal business. He currently lives and works in Clarksdale, the heart of the Delta and the birthplace of the blues. He recently obtained his real estate sales license this year after realizing there was an immense need for a local real estate sales professional specializing in land in the Delta. His knowledge of the area and his extensive contacts in the real estate field would be hard to beat. When Darrell isn't working you can find him with his family, which he values more than anything. His wife Laurie and their three children, Camille, Webb, and Wilkes are the reason Darrell is so driven to succeed. Darrell is an avid hunter of all wildlife in Mississippi. He has hunted in Alaska, Arizona, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Tennessee, as well as Kentucky. To say he has a love of the outdoors, would be an understatement. Land is his passion and the reason he is so committed to his professions.
Darrell is very excited to be a part of the Mossy Oak family and looks forward to showcasing all the opportunities the Delta has to offer both sellers and buyers. Whether you are looking for agricultural land as an investment, or a place of your own to hunt, fish, or play, Darrell's knowledge of the area is extensive. He would love to help you in your journey to buy or sell a piece of the iconic Mississippi Delta.
