Kyle was born and raised in Vogelbach, Germany. He is fluent in German, proficient in Dutch, and graduated from the US Air Force Academy in 2011. Before calling Shreveport his forever home, he served as an Air Force Officer, stationed in Turkey, Djibouti, Louisiana, Indiana, and Colorado. After being honored with several prestigious awards for his service in the Air Force, Kyle returned to his alma mater as an Executive Officer and taught German to future Air Force officers.
While living in Colorado, he fell in love with real estate and realized his passion for sharing the joy of homeownership and real estate investing. Kyle’s long-term goal is to collaborate with local entrepreneurs to highlight Shreveport's rich history, low cost of living, vibrant daily life, and geographic advantages that make it the best city in America for younger generations to live and work. He is currently working on some developments in Shreveport, turning old buildings into vibrant living and working spaces that highlight the historical aspect of each building.
Kyle is married to Kayla Jackson Southard, a native of Shreveport, wedding designer, and Founder of Jackson Southard Events. In addition to his career as a Realtor, Kyle and Kayla enjoy hiking, riding bikes slowly, traveling through Europe, and teaching tricks to their Irish Setter named Bernice!
