His favorite vacation spot is Las Vegas, and he loves playing poker in his spare time. What he loves most, however, is spending time with his lovely wife, Willona Aekins, and their Yorkie-poo Bella. Together at Jackson Realty, they work to help countless families realize the dream of home ownership!
