“Offer a guarantee: Your home sold in 60 days, or I’ll buy it for cash.”

Curry uses a team approach to work two markets, Gainesville and Lake City. Having grown up with nine siblings, he’s used to being part of an extended group. He brought two brothers, a sister, and his father into the company over the last few years.

How he got into real estate: He took his first real estate class at age 16 and received his license shortly after turning 18, the minimum age to get a license in Florida. Last year he did 117 transactions worth $14.5 million.

He tells it all: Got a real estate question? Curry has answers. He emcees a 30-minute live call-in radio talk show each Saturday. The broadcast is paid programming—he spends $3,000 monthly for the airtime—but Curry says the show reaches his target and generates sufficient business to offset the cost.
