In this week’s Personality Profile, we are featuring Trey Daniels.
Trey was born in Mobile, Alabama. His father was in the United States Army for 33 years and he has lived from the east coast to the west coast. Returning back to Atlanta, he graduated from North Springs High School in Dunwoody and attended The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, where he studied business and communication.
Over multiple decades of living in Atlanta, he has seen the evolution of the city and what it has to offer, including the communities and amenities just a short drive outside the city. After living in Atlanta until 2012, Trey decided to move from Ansley Park and make Lake Oconee in Middle Georgia his home. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of Middle Georgia’s Lake Country with family, friends and clients. Whether it is for a full-time residence or a part-time getaway, he thrives on working hard for his clients so they get the most out of their lake home purchasing experience.
Trey’s number one focus is to make sure it is the perfect lake home for you and your family. His philosophy is to keep the transaction process as timely, smooth and enjoyable with the least amount of stress.
With over 25 years of experience in real estate, Trey’s greatest reward is sharing his excitement and genuine love for real estate and lake life. After living at Lake Oconee for over a decade now, he possesses extensive and in-depth knowledge of the many areas that Lake Oconee and Lake Sinclair have to offer. Whether you are buying your first lake home or your 10th, he has the knowledge and expertise that will help your decision be the right one.
Trey focuses on past clients, friends, and family and their referrals for home purchases at Lake Oconee and the Lake Country area, including Greensboro, Buckhead, Madison, Eatonton, Milledgeville and the surrounding historic towns. After numerous years in the real estate industry, he has countless connections that allow him to assist clients and their friends with their real estate needs both around the country and internationally. Trey enjoys all that lake life has to offer, including boating, tennis and golf, as well as spending time with family, friends and his three dogs, Buddy (a West Highland Terrier), Cora (a Cowgirl Corgi – Half Blue Heeler Half Corgi), and Daisy his Beagle. When Trey is not boating on the lake, you will find him entertaining friends, family and loved ones and exploring the surrounding historic towns, soaking up the history, architecture and scouting out great finds in the area’s antique stores.
