Buying or Selling a house is a big life-changing event. To help, you need someone who not only knows the area, but also understands how this move will affect you and your family. Hi, I’m Kirk Schexnaider. Who am I? Born in Kaplan, Louisiana, I am a native of the Lafayette area, and therefore know the local communities well. After attending school in Lafayette parish, I graduated from Lafayette High in 2002. It was during high school that I met my future wife, Katie. We were high school sweethearts and married in May of 2008, which was a very busy year for me. In addition to a beautiful wedding, I also earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in Industrial Technology, and the bought my first home. Over the next few years my wife and I were blessed with three boys, Cole in 2009, Ashton in 2011 and Kaiden in 2014. As an avid hunter, I raise my boys to appreciate nature and outdoor living. My entire family and I are diehard UL Ragin Cajun fans, and hardly ever miss a game. Why am I in real estate? I worked at the local Target store for 9 years, where I quickly worked my way up to an Executive Team Lead position. Despite my dedication and hard work with the company, I didn’t quite feel fulfilled with the work I was doing. I wanted a career that allowed me to better help people and build up the community. In 2012 I fulfilled this desire by earning my real estate license and joining the team at RE/MAX Acadiana. My very first year in Real Estate I earned the Rookie of the Year award for the state of Louisiana. The subsequent years I’ve earned Executive Club and 100% Club awards with RE/MAX. Now, my passion for the local area and its people comes out everyday in my work. What can I do for you? You are about to take one of the biggest steps in life: owning a home. You want someone with knowledge about the local area, people, community, and schools. You want someone who not only knows what it takes to own a new house, but can also help you envision your future there. You need someone who can you plan just how your family will grow within your new home. You need a family man that can help your family to grow in your new home. I’m Kirk Schexnaider.
