Having a long family history in Real Estate, I’ve been surrounded by the business my entire life. Blessed to have graduated from the University of Mississippi, I obtained a Bachelors of Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. I first started selling real estate in 2005 with Meridian Homes in Houston TX, then in 2007, with Walker Realty and Land Company. This is where I received recognition by the Oxford Eagle Newspaper as one of Oxford’s “Top Realtors.” Shortly there after, I started a Real Estate Brokerage Firm where I acted as Principal Broker. Currently, Lauren and I enjoy working for the most powerful real estate firm in Oxford. In 2010 I received the Re/Max “Power User” Internet award for the most trafficked site in the state. In 2012 Lauren and I received the award for the #1 Re/Max Team in the entire state. In 2013 we received the Re/Max Coveted “Hall of Fame” designation and “Platinum Club” Winner. 2014 marks our largest achievement to date forming the Partnership Cannon Cleary.
Blake Cannon was raised in small town Shelby, Mississippi. Throughout his childhood, he and his family moved a number of times. Blake and his family moved to Clarksdale, MS when he was 5 for a short year before his fathers job moved him yet again to Leland, MS. As a child, Cannon grew up playing golf and attended school in Greenville, MS. At 12 years of age, his family moved him near to Brandon, MS for one year. If that wasn’t enough, when Blake was 13, the Cannon’s moved to Olive Branch, MS where Blake played on the Olive Branch golf team in high school and graduated in 2002. With all of the moves, Blake was taught by his parents how important it was to buy with resell in mind.
After high school, Cannon didn’t think twice about going to Ole Miss where he graduated with a degree in Marketing in December of 2006.
With a job offer from Wells Fargo in his back pocket, Blake decided to take a risk and jump into the real estate market. This was a way for him to stay in Oxford, and never have to leave! Marketing, research and quality service are Blake’s passions, and he continues to practice that each and every day. Give Blake a call if you are looking to sell your place, find your next home or condo, or play a quick round of golf!
Lauren West Cleary
Lauren West Cleary was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. Having some pretty strong University of Alabama influences, with both parents attending and graduating there, Lauren chose to be a real rebel and attend Ole Miss! Lauren graduated with a degree in Business Marketing and was very active in her sorority. A very admirable and impressive attribute of Lauren’s is how she gives back to Oxford through her volunteer work and involvement in community organizations. Mrs. Cleary helped start the Young Professionals of Oxford which is a thriving group of Oxonians that continues to grow. As a graduate of Leadership Lafayette, Lauren learned many things about Oxford as a whole including: local business, local politics, Oxford’s history, and Oxford’s growth outlook.
Lauren has many hobby’s that include: music and dance, yoga, travel, interior design, art, and social event planning. If you are looking for a realtor who knows the inner workings of Oxford, and knows her market, Lauren Cleary is the one to call!
Alison is a small town girl who was born and raised in a little town of Hazlehurst, Mississippi. As someone that placed a high value on education, Alison came to Ole Miss as a freshman, and when she made up her mind to obtain a degree in Business/Marketing, she transferred that next semester to Millsaps. While attending Millsaps, she took her credentials to the next level when she earned her MBA. As much as Alger appreciates her education at Millsaps, she was already homesick for Oxford. When Merck Pharmaceutical offered her a job that would land her back in Oxford, she didn’t give it another thought!
After years in Oxford as well as the corporate world, she decided to enthusiastically switch careers and dive into real estate. With her husband, Corey Alger, being a well known architect, their two careers certainly compliment one another. Her three children: Anna, Mac, and Graeme are the center of her world and Alison couldn’t imagine raising them in a better town. When she isn’t working diligently for her clients, Alger enjoys cooking, traveling, and exercising. You may find her at Ice Core Fitness teaching a Barre Amped class! If you are looking for a dedicated, personable, and knowledgeable realtor, you can stop your search at Alison Alger.
