Great Western Home Loans Featured Realtor: Garrett Bass is an ‘Unsinkable’ Hot Young Star on the Real Estate Front at Just 23!

By Candy Evans / February 24, 2014 / 1 Comment

Meet Garrett Bass, one of the newest, hardest-working members of the Ben Jones team, who — I hope you have a drink in your hand — sold $3 plus million dollars worth of real estate last year and is all of 23 years old. Toast! He is a Texas state champion Trombone player, no kidding! That’s right, he’s a baby with great skin, an adorable face, dimples AND a great real estate brain. Oh my, it must have been his mom’s super duper pre-natal vitamins.

Garrett took a break from a busy day to answer a few questions for us to be our featured Realtors, sponsored by Jeff Lindigrin of Great Western Home Loans. Of course, every sale should have a lender that works just as hard to get a great deal as their Realtor. What has your lender done for you lately? Find out what you’re missing by contacting Jeff Lindigrin with Great Western Home Loans today.
