MEET COLTON WILLIAMS
As an athlete, Colton is competitive both on and off the field. In sports as well as in business, he aspires to succeed and doesn’t settle for sub-par performance. Believing that one’s progression in life is like a scorecard, he keeps a close watch on his wins and losses and his ability to grow and learn from both. Colton may be considered young in the business, but his hunger to learn and tenacity have driven him to gain experience in nearly all aspects of the mortgage industry. He has aided in identifying possible refinancing opportunities, assisted in the creation of company policy and procedure, and communicated with partners in the post-closing market to ensure the achievement of their goals. Sports taught Colton about the importance of teamwork, and he is grateful for being able to start as an intern with TMC which provided and an even deeper appreciation for teamwork and how each department plays an integral role in the success of the entire company.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT COLTON
Some kids dream of being an astronaut when they grow up; Colton loved the world of finance and started investing the day he turned 18. He’s currently finishing up a Finance degree at Florida State University and managed to obtain his MLO License in both Colorado and Florida. While not a native, Colton grew up in Colorado and loves being outside. If the FSU Seminoles (football) aren’t playing, you will more than likely find Colton on the golf course, hiking trail, or casting a line into the water. (Of course, he loves any sporting event including baseball, college hoops and football, and all Chicago sports.)
Colton is also a people person and strives to surround himself with those who have positive energy, and that challenge him to be a better person. He’s especially inspired by those who give and those who lead; the person that acts selfless in any situation and cares about the interest of their collective group. Dustin Pedroia was his idol growing up because of his approach to the game of baseball and the big game of life: “too short, too small, too weak,” are not words in his vocabulary. Colton also places a high value on relationships. Spending time with family, friends, and meeting new people is a driving force in his life.
HERE ARE A FEW MORE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT COLTON
A natural leader, Colton graduated from Lutheran High School in Parker, CO where he was the captain of his baseball and golf teams. He participated in the National Honor Society and served as the treasurer of his student council. As a current finance major at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Colton was admitted to the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society for academic achievement and community engagement.
Colton loves to travel and has been to 40 of our 50 states, as well as the Bahamas and Canada. And when it comes to music, his go-to’s are Rap and Country.
Colton looks forward to continued growth in the mortgage industry and building a life in Colorado and Florida (he considers both to be “home”). Most of all, he wants to be remembered for being significant rather than successful. He joined this business to help people, not make money, and if he can touch the life of even one person every day, he’ll feel more fulfilled than any dollar figure could ever provide.
Words Colton lives by: Failure breeds success. Like the great Michael Jordan once said, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
