◗◗◗   “Kudos to Ken Spivey and HCB Realty [Advisors]! I sold my home with Ken as the listing agent in 2016. My home was in a popular neighborhood in Santa Rosa Beach and received a lot of traffic when listed. My agent, Ken would be at most showings by other realtors to make sure my pets stayed indoors. This was very important to me as my pets are inside only. Ken was attentive, professional and on the ball in making sure my home was advertised well. I had never sold a home on my own before and Ken was there every step of the way with great advice. Thanks so much for helping me sell my biggest investment!!”

Ken Spivey, the Pilot

Ability +  Preparation + Integrity +  Relationship = Service

This is more than just a string of buzz words. Service is at the core of Ken Spivey’s life. His family and friends will attest to his desire to serve others. Throughout is professional life as an Air Force instructor pilot, as a pastor, as a small business owner, as a hospice chaplain, and as a realtor; the desire to meet the needs of others has been Ken’s motivation! A phrase in the snack bar at his first Air Force squadron has shaped his life through the years—“If you see something that needs doing, DO IT!”

Without ability and preparation, though, service accomplishes little. Likewise, accomplishments without integrity may be quite costly! All these are key components of great real estate service; and they come down to having a close relationship with his clients. Ken recognizes that every transaction is a business deal; but behind every deal are real people, each looking for financial benefit! His goal is to help each side experience victory, whether buying or selling a “starter home”, or engaging in a multi-million dollar venture!

Every client is a unique individual, with unique real estate goals/needs. Ken wants each client to realize they are valued first and foremost as an individual. He treats every client with equal value, and brings the best of his ability and preparation to every transaction. Always with integrity as the foundation, he takes time to get to know his clients’ goals, building a relationship that allows him to serve every individual with excellence!

About Jimmy Sharpe—The Coach

After playing football for the University of Alabama and graduating, Jimmy’s first job was as an assistant coach for Coach Paul Bryant at the University of Alabama. He was there 16 years as a player and assistant coach. During the time Alabama won 4 National Championships and 8 SEC championships. He was instrumental to the beginning of the “Wishbone Offense”.

He left Alabama to become the Head Coach at Virginia Tech. Following some good years and some tnot so good years in Blacksburg, Jimmy moved on to several other coaching stops. Mississippi State, Pittsburg, Memphis State and finally to the USFL, Memphis Showboats.

In 1989, Jimmy and his lovely wife, Anne moved to Destin, Florida and began to look for an opportunity, for the next career. Through former relationships and local networking, the Coach became involved with several local real estate developers. He found his experience and skill set fit in quite well with these new opportunities. He discovered that whether in the past or in the present, he was building something tangible, putting people together, and working together to achieve a goal.

In 1992, Coach Sharpe obtained his Florida real estate Broker’s license and officially started his second career. Along the way, he has worked for or collaborated with…

He currently serves as a broker for three divisions of Phillips Capital Partners—HCB Advisory Group, HCB Realty Advisors, and Halifax Homes Realty.
