About Elton Coley
Growing up on a small farm in north Mississippi like most boys my age, I grew up hunting, fishing, and trapping small game. From a very early age, I wanted to be a forester and never gave any other profession much thought. My love of the outdoors and enjoyment of time in the woods was a natural progression of me becoming a forester. I graduated from Mississippi State University in 1974 with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry and a Masters in Business Administration in 1975.
After graduation and marriage, Patricia and I moved to north Alabama where I was employed by Champion International Corporation as a staff forester. I advanced through the ranks with Champion and in 1985, not wanting to leave north Alabama I resigned and bought half interest in a forestry consulting business. My ten years’ experience with Champion allowed me to know most every logging contractor and many landowners within a hundred mile radius in three states.
That first consulting business grew and moved into real estate brokerage, timberland investments, and one of the largest wood dealerships in north Alabama. During that time, I earned a real estate broker’s license and became a Certified General Real Estate Appraiser in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee as well as earning a MAI designation from the Appraisal Institute.
