Knox Brockett Daniels was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia and baptized into the Church by his grandfather. His eagerness to explore and overall passion for the Outdoors was evident at an early age. He attended Augusta Preparatory Day School and spent childhood summers at his family's lake place in Waupaca, Wisconsin fishing, water skiing, and scouting. Knox attended Georgia College and State University and was an active member of the School's bass fishing team, as well as a founding member of the school's Ducks Unlimited chapter. Knox graduated in 4 years with a Bachelors of Business Management and a concentration in Logistics. In college, Knox had several interesting jobs, including as farm hand, dock builder on Lake Sinclair, and bartender.
After graduation, Knox moved to Canton, GA, and worked for Greg Grimes, one of the state's most well-respected fisheries/wildlife biologists, where he pinpointed his passion for habitat management. With Greg's company (AES), Knox learned about all facets of pond management, as he helped manage/consult some of the finest private impoundment properties across Georgia and the Southeast. In this role, Knox established working relationships with property owners and helped them identify goals for their properties as well as strategies to make those goals reality. Knox handled "installations", including habitat/structure, aeration units, fountains, lime and fertilizer applications, fish/wildlife feeders, stands, and regularly assisted with fish stocking, electro surveying, herbicide applications, and prescribed burns.
After his time with AES, Knox was brought on full time by a landowner in Soperton, GA as a property manager and guide to facilitate paid hunts for deer, pigs, duck, quail, and pheasant between 3 hunting lodges in Truetlen/Emanuel counties. His crew planted and maintained over 25 foodplots and nearly as many feeders/stands/cameras on over 2000 acres. Additionally, Knox acted as the personal host to out-of-state clients.
Most recently, Knox has worked as a project manager for Hillpointe Construction, coordinating the build of a 300 unit apartment complex. "I serve as a middle-man between the Company's corporate upper management and subcontractors. I also work closely with the City's permitting department and inspectors to keep the development on track. Everyday, I provide real-time reports and photo documentation of construction progress. I manage the site's inventory and am responsible for verifying deliveries/subcontractor invoices, as well as site safety and security."
New to real estate, but not luxury property management, each of his unique prior work experiences has prepared Knox for this opportunity, and he looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for the Outdoors with JKA clients. "I enjoy helping other land stewards discover the intricacies of their properties and helping them grow to their full potential. I'm truly delighted for the opportunity to work with Jon Kohler & Associates and look forward to to helping my clients make the most of their properties."
