Hello! My name is Vivien Leigh Taylor Clark, that’s a mouthful of a southern name for sure. Just call me Leigh. I am Panhandle of Florida born and raised. My home turf was in Bonifay as a kid and now I reside in Chipley. I am married to my sweetheart Keith. He came into this union with 4 kids and so did I….that’s right, 8 kids all together. When we aren’t busy cooking or doing laundry, we love to get on the boat, go to the beach, go out dancing, etc.. We also have a thriving business that we manage. We do tree work, lot clean up, forestry mulching, and a lot of other dirty tasks.

I got into real estate for a myriad of reasons, but the final and most recent reason was because of a conversation I had with one of my teenagers. We were discussing career and college options and also talking about our dreams. I told them that one of my biggest regrets were not finishing some of the things that I had started in the past. They looked right at me and said, it’s not too late. I knew that I had to show them that they were right.

I love where I live. I love our state, the panhandle, and our specific little community that is so special. I would love to see growth in this area while also keeping what makes us so special. I believe that what makes us unique is our people and the understanding that honoring and preserving our past is crucial. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t use technology and advancements to help us. I would rather see an old building brought to life through new codes and structural technology than be torn to the ground. I love the way our small downtown is somewhat of a time capsule.

Real estate makes me excited! It’s not all cute homes and perfection. It’s looking past things to see what they can be or it’s helping someone envision their future office or newborn nursery. I have recently been working with a first time homebuyer that’s expecting and I couldn’t love this more. Their excitement is infectious. They really rely on me and trust me and I feel honored to be a part of their journey. That all sounds a little sappy, but it’s the best part so far. Please call me and let me be a part of your journey too!!
