When looking for a real estate agent, you need someone who is available when you call and who you trust is working with your best interests in mind. Blake Towns is that agent. “I want my clients to know I will always be available to them,” says Blake. Honesty and integrity are driving principles that guide his life. His clients can rest assured that Blake will make them his priority and work hard to negotiate the best deal for his clients.
Blake’s dedication to living a life of high principles was reinforced in his 22 years of service in the Navy. He enlisted right out of high school. He later got his BS in Health Sciences at ODU and went on to get a Master’s in Public Health specializing in Health Policy Management from EVMS in 2008. He has used his education serving the Navy as a health care administrator. The same qualities that helped him excel in his military career make him a great real estate agent. “I love helping people,” says Blake. “I love meeting new people and engaging with their stories.” Blake works to understand his clients’ needs and help them get to their goal. Whether that is buying or selling, Blake is ready to make it happen. Helping people has always been at the core of what he does. In the military it was in the health care field, and in real estate he enjoys the fulfillment of helping his clients achieve their real estate goals.
Blake has always been interested in real estate. When he looked into expanding his own real estate investments, he realized that becoming an agent and helping others was a new path he wanted to take. Though he grew up in Texas, he has lived in the Hampton Roads for much of his adult life. “I know the area well,” says Blake, and he is able to help his clients in any corner of the 7 city area. His 22+ years in the Navy uniquely qualify him to serve his military clients as they transfer in or out of this area.
Blake is compassionate and motivated by a genuine desire to serve and help others which is evidenced through his choice to serve whenever a need arises. While stationed in Hawaii, Blake had the opportunity to serve on the Convoy of Hope. He also recently went to Puerto Rico on the USNS COMFORT to provide disaster relief. Blake is driven by his dedication to his family and faith. He works to set an example for his children by serving others whenever he can. This dedicated father also enjoys serving in his children’s lives, helping coach his son’s Portsmouth Christian football team over the past 5 years.
Blake is married to the love of his life, Gidgett who he met at his first duty station in Pensacola, Florida. Together they have 3 children; Taylor, Carley and Travis. Spending time with family is one of his favorite things to do. He also loves to play drums for his church band. Sports are a big part of his life. He enjoys working out with his son and he loves to play golf as often as he can. He jokes that he is somewhere between a hacker and a scratch golfer. He’s a Diet Coke guy and, being from Texas, can eat chips and salsa for breakfast.
