After almost 20 years in Law Enforcement, Bill Bythewood wanted something different for his wife and kids.  He needed something different, something safe and he enjoyed working with people so he made the choice to get his Real Estate License.  Bill obtained his Georgia Real Estate License in 2003.  He began working with buyers and sellers to buy and sell homes and was very productive.  He quickly became one of the Top Sales Associates at Keller Williams and began making a name for himself.  He quickly began obtaining clients such as banks and asset management companies that needed experienced agents to sale their foreclosure properties.

Nakia Brooks began his career in Real Estate by obtaining his real estate license in 2006.  He too has spent many years in Law Enforcement and felt the need to help people in other ways.  Upon issuance of his Real Estate License, he began working with Bill as a Buyer’s Agent.  Assisting Buyer’s and obtained his Accredited Buyer’s Representative designation, demonstrating his expertise and dedication to buyer’s.  Upon leaving Law Enforcement he began listing homes and managing rental properties for his clients.  Nakia hasn't looked back since and has continued to be a Top Producing Agent for Keller Williams Realty - Lanier Partners.
