Clint Lawson is the newest member of our property management team. He brings a sense of humor and youthful energy to our property management support division. He is a self-proclaimed "nerd" who loves dogs and memes. Clint grew up in a small town in Peru, Indiana where he learned hardworking midwest values that created the strong work ethic that he brought with him to Florida in 2018. Clint comes from a diverse background including working with police and military dogs and an extensive ten-year career in customer service. Over the years, he has enjoyed meeting a variety of people. He has also enjoyed witnessing the positive impact his customers have experienced as a direct result of the service he was able to provide to them. Clint joined the C.O.R.E.

He has never met a stranger and he believes his willingness to go that extra mile is what sets him apart from others in the industry -- and he is anxious to prove it. He also boasts he can do 50 push-ups but we here at C.O.R.E. Partners put him to the test. Maybe it's the warm Florida weather but we could only get 25 out of him.
