Agent Spotlight

Don Cornett
I grew up on a farm in Kentucky, and was educated at Berea College and The University of Florida.

I spent over three decades with Exxon and have lived in many parts of the country, but about half of my career was based in Houston. I bought my first country property, near New Ulm in Colorado County, in 1975, and have owned property in the area continuously since that time. Today I specialize in helping clients find their special place in the country, whether it is a large working ranch, or just a weekend place to relax and play.
I am also active in helping my neighbors effectively market their property when they are ready to sell.

For several years I owned a registered cattle ranch at Frelsburg, in Colorado County, and have developed a
deep appreciation for this area and its people.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss your real estate needs and desires. Land is my specialty. I am an Accredited Land Consultant, ALC, and a member of the Realtor’s Land Institute.

Please call me at 979-865-5969 (office) or 713-703-6741 (cell) or email me at doncornett@bjre.com.
