Raised in South Carolina, Hayden grew up near Lake Wylie, then made his way to The Citadel, where he played baseball. During his eight years in banking, he has gained experience in retail banking, managing branches, opening a new branch, commercial lending, and mortgage lending, giving him a wide skill set to offer his clients. Hayden is passionate about helping his clients find their dream home. Since buying a home is one of the largest financial transactions a person can make, it is an important decision for each client, which Hayden says makes his work more meaningful. Outside of the office, Hayden is active at his church, enjoys working out, fly fishing, and attending sporting events.
