Carey Antoon

One thing that will never describe Carey Antoon is a lack of effort. Growing up with a single mom taught him the value of a strong work ethic early on and that things worth having are earned, not given, he said. After 18 years honing his skills in the business world, Antoon credits all of his success to God. “He has had his hand on my career from day one,” Antoon said. “The people and relationships he has put in my path and the experiences, good and bad, that have taught me so many valuable lessons are just a couple of things that prove to me that God has his plans in place.”

What is your favorite hobby?

Golf. I’ve played since I was a kid. It’s something I will play until I am physically unable.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment?   

I have a lot to be proud of in my sales career with Medtronic, as our team is consistently one of the top-grossing regions in the country, but most recently, my proudest accomplishment is growing a vacation rental property management company from zero to 42 luxury properties in less than two years. I could not have done it without my amazing team.

What do you love most about what you do? 

The lives we get to impact on a daily basis.

What cliche do you think holds truth?

Think outside the box.

If someone had to live as you for the day, what advice would you give them?

Hold on tight, and bring your phone charger.

What is the most underrated “secret ingredient” to success?

Giving, and I don’t mean just money.  Give your time, give grace, give advice, give encouragement, and give thanks, even when it’s least expected.

What is the best decision you’ve ever made?

My wife — duh!

What quality do you admire most in other men?

Integrity.
