Clayton C. Jeffords is a Southeast land broker and recreational sporting enthusiast who truly covers land from coast to coast. From a very early age, all Clayton wanted to do was be outdoors. Even before he was school-aged, you could find him playing in the yard or roaming the trees with a trusty Red Rider, always playing out an epic adventure. Family vacations consisted of trips out west to ski, strap fly rods to horses, and other outdoor pursuits. Born and raised in Nashville, TN, with a healthy dose of bluegrass and country classics, winters were spent chasing waterfowl on the Mississippi Flyway and summers on the cold clear streams of the Appalachian Mountains. Raised by a dry fly purist, he drifted off in early adolescence to throwing wooly boogers and large nymphs to hungry browns and honing the waterfowl skills passed down to him through generations of family and great mentors. Today the outdoor life drives his family, business, and other passions. For Clayton, there is always something new to learn and an off the beaten path to take.
Clayton received a Bachelor of Science in political science at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, which allowed for many hunting and fishing opportunities. He also received a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Auburn University in Alabama. Clayton’s professional career started in 2001 for Merrill Lynch Global Private Client Group, managing investment portfolios for discerning clients. In 2002 he made his first real estate investment and began investing in remodels and rentals in Nashville. After others sought his advice on real estate and construction, Clayton opened Richland Real Estate Advisors in Nashville and later opened Richland Remodeling in 2006. Always an entrepreneur, he went full time into real estate in a private client model he felt the investment, residential, and commercial market needed. Clayton found his passion in real estate of all types.
You can find Clayton and family anywhere from New Mexico to Montana, Tennessee, Georgia, and all over the Southeast in pursuit of wildlife and a life influenced by the wild. Clayton and his wife, Dr. Catherine Jeffords, a talented sportswoman in her own right, are raising their two boys Colton and Henry on their farm in Belton, SC. in the foothills of the Appalachians. Like Clayton, you will often find the boys with decoys and duck calls or a fishing rod practicing their growing passions, or snuggled up with bird dogs Covey and Bud.
Clayton is excited to work with buyers and sellers, combining his passion for nature with complex real estate transactions. For many, looking for that farm, ranch, fishing or hunting property, or just a weekend retreat can be intimidating. Making that dream a reality for his clients is what drives Clayton. He is excited about being a part of the Fay Ranches Southeast team, having already formed a strong bond with the Fay Ranches team. Clayton and his team are committed to excellent and ethical business practices, conservation, and land stewardship. No matter the lifestyle property you need help with, Clayton loves the journey and the hunt.
