"We're here to prove humans can be great stewards of the earth. I believe that we were all born to do good."

Jimmy was raised with the belief that what you do should be good for others. His father was born in Kirkwood, Missouri and following this belief became a story of success as Atlanta's real estate broker who told the truth. He taught Jimmy about the industry, society's need for good places, and how real estate could help or hurt neighborhoods. 

"Neighborhoods and towns are the building blocks of civilization. If we want to create a sustainable world, we first have to learn how to build a sustainable town."

Together, they decided to create Kalu Yala to prove that doing good is good for business and that real estate should be a force for good.
