Ron started his career at UPS at the age of 16 as a part time preloader. He was promoted to supervisor at 18 and this began his career of management at UPS. At age 21, Ron became a driver and then was promoted to full time management. During his 24 year career at UPS, Ron held several different positions in management. Ron was promoted to Center Manager in 1992 in Gainesville, then transferred to Athens in 1994 where he managed the Athens and Carnesville operations.
In 1997 having already invested in some real estate properties, Ron made a tough decision to make a career change and start selling real estate. Looking to spend more time with the family and become self employed had always been a dream. Ron put to work the business skills he had learned at UPS and quickly became a licensed real estate agent.
The next step was to select a great company to work with, so he started with The Norton Agency.
As he did with UPS, he has worn many different hats. He was a residential agent for 3 years, then Frank Norton Jr. asked him to manage the property management division. That was also a 3 year position. After that, he went to the commercial division.
Ron is presently selling commercial, land and acreage in the Clarkesville office of The Norton Agency.
Ron has been in real estate for 19 years and has experience in residential, commercial, investment properties and farms.
