AJ Walters

Realtor, Land Specialist

AJ joined the Overland Properties Group team in 2021. Originally from Lakeland FL, he fell in love with the land through chasing many different species of game in the oak hammocks and swamps of Florida. At a young age, AJ and his family moved to Kentucky, where he found a new ecosystem to explore and an abundance of game like he’d never seen. He spends a good portion of his time exploring the small creeks of KY with a light weight fly rod or hiking our public lands in search of a new hunting spot. The time spent on the land is what brought me to being an agent. “The idea of helping someone find their piece of nature excited me like no occupation I’d explored before.”
