Meet The Chattanooga Team
Kendall McBryar » Investment Analyst
Kendall, a Gautier, Mississippi native, claims that she is the most happy she’s ever been at a job. She says, “Auben is my second family. I enjoy being a part of someone’s new beginning, and providing solutions when people call in with a problem or a need.” In her spare time, Kendall is involved with the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce. She also enjoys binge watching Netflix programs. Her favorite quote: “You will never regret being kind.”
Phillip Vera » CEO
Phillip Vera is passionate about real estate investing. He loves searching for “the deal,” and the details of rehabbing a property to make it a home. What he loves most is “playing a part in revitalizing neighborhoods and making a positive impact on a city.”
Since joining the team in August of 2017, Phillip has demonstrated himself as a strong leader capable of affecting positive change. In addition to earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, Phillip holds an MBA from Augusta University. His previous work experience is in commercial real estate and management operations at The Augusta National Golf Club.
Phillip has been eager to assist the Auben team in pushing forward to achieving new goals in real estate. "In the next few years, Auben Realty is looking to become the best and largest property management firm with regards to customer satisfaction and properties managed in the CSRA and Chattanooga,” says Phillip. "Our long-term goal is to continue the transition from a property management firm to a full-service investment brokerage, and expanding this model into becoming a regional leader in the southeast.”
When he isn’t working tirelessly to improve the company and community, he is a devoted husband to Laurie and doting father to their daughter, Annie.
Natalie Crow » Director of Operations
Director of Operations by weekday, and barrel racing champion by weekend, Natalie Crow was born and raised in Higdon, Alabama. When asked what she loves most about working in property management and real estate, she says, “Everyday is different! You never know what to expect, because just when you think you’ve seen it all, you realize you have NOT seen it all!” Her favorite words of wisdom come from Albert Einstein who said, “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
Breanne Doyon » Property Manager
Breanne hails from the big city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She claims to be a people person, which surely helps her with her role in property management! What she loves most about working at Auben: “Everyone has a positive attitude and is always willing to help each other out.” In her spare time, Breanne enjoys dabbling in the arts, and making jewelry.
Chapman Edge » Project Manager
Chapman moved from South Georgia at the age of 14, north to Flinstone—just outside of Chattanooga, TN and has resided there since. He was formally trained in mechanical and building maintenance before setting out to run his own industrial maintenance company for 10 years. “I’m looking forward to growing with Auben, and having a wonderful team of people to work with,” says Chapman of his new business endeavor. When this former football player isn’t working hard, you can find him playing hard: skydiving, drag racing, and motorcycle riding!
