Paul grew up on his family farm near Holland, Texas, and has been a lifelong resident of Bell County. Paul has been involved with farming, ranching, and rural agricultural real estate all his life. Paul began his full-time efforts as a farmer and rancher in Central Texas in 1991. His interest in real estate came from that background, learning to evaluate production value vs. price of properties leased and purchased for his farming and ranching operation. Paul began to develop a more detailed process as he started buying and selling properties solely as investments and income-producing property.
