Eric Lukkarinen


“Following my years of military service, I made the choice to go into real estate. I’ve personally held and flipped over 100 homes and have closed hundreds of homes for my clients. I am fortunate to have achieved remarkable success with this venture. I’m proud to say that I have served within leadership on the Hinesville Area Board of REALTORS as a director for roughly 11 years and as board president with great success. In addition, in 2007 I received the HABR REALTOR of the year award and was nominated as Georgia REALTOR of the year in 2008. I’ve been serving in this business for almost 20 years, and I’ve developed a passion to start a veteran focused real estate firm to serve the needs of our American troops and their families.”

American Veteran Properties Agents Caitlyn

Caitlyn Rowe


“Hi, my name is Caitlyn Rowe. I was born and raised in Northern Ohio. I am an Army spouse of 9 years, and a mom to 3 amazing boys. Along with being a real estate agent, I am a licensed Cosmetologist and a Registered Dental Assistant. You will usually find me outside exploring with my family or inside crafting. I have a love for all things vintage. This is our second time being stationed here at Ft. Stewart, and Georgia has really become home to us. We purchased our first home here in 2015 and we have since bought a total of 3 homes, two of which we successfully rent out ourselves. Being a military family, we move often and finding our next place to live is not always the easiest. So being able to educate military families on the benefits of their VA loans and how one purchase can turn into a lifetime investment, has really fueled my love for this career. I look forward to answering any questions you may have and helping you find your next home!”

Jenah Wieczorek


Jenah is a former Director of Marketing and Social Media, but always had a passion for real estate. Buying multiple properties and successfully renting them herself, each PCS made this Army spouse realize that she wanted to be an agent and educate other families on the process. With five PCSs worth of experience, Jenah is ready to help you find your “right now home” or forever home. When not working, you can find her helping the local spouse club, volunteering with the SFRG and PTO, and running a meal ministry for fellow military families in her neighborhood. Jenah is married to an active-duty soldier, has two children, and one fur baby.


Brad Berens


“Hi, my name is Brad Berens. I was born and raised in San Diego, California. After graduating college from San Jose State University, I enlisted in the US Army. I served on active duty as a Satellite Operator and Maintainer with the 706th Military Intelligence Group and National Security Agency (NSA). At the conclusion of my military career, I decided to pursue my passion of working in the real estate industry and relocate to the Ft. Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield area. In my free time you can usually find me outside on the golf course, or inside watching sports with friends.

Joining AVP was a no brainer for me when transitioning out of the military because it provided me with the opportunity to pursue my passion for real estate while still serving the community I love.  I have first-hand experience and understanding of the constant demands and stress that come with being a service member. My main goal is to make your home buying or selling process as easy and stress free as possible for you and your family. I am excited to put my work ethic, customer service, and no quit mentality on display in order to help you achieve your real estate goals and needs.”

David Joseph


“My name is David Joseph, I was born in Haiti and raised in Florida. In 2018, I joined the United States Army as a 31B (Military Police Officer). During my time in service my passion for helping my battle buddies became something much more impactful than just being a Soldier. Upon completing my time in service, I became a Real Estate Agent in order to ensure that veterans seeking to buy and or sell, felt seen and understood. My new hobbies are riding motorcycles, going fishing and running. It is an absolute privilege to serve my fellow veterans, their families and neighboring communities the way I wish someone helped me. I look forward to being put to work for YOU!”

My last duty station was at the Communications Command in Chesapeake, VA where I made the decision to start my post military career.

With the conclusion of my Marine Corps career approaching, I chose to pursue my passion in real estate and relocate to Savannah, GA. When I’m not working you can find me at the gym, out on the water, or cheering on my favorite team. Being a part of American Veteran Properties allows me to continue to interact with and assist our military community in such a fulfilling way. Not only do I love being able to continue to serve our active duty service members but also helping to educate them on how to best utilize their benefits at hand when it comes to homeownership.

American Veteran Properties Real Estate Agents

Nick Arena


“Hi, my name is Nick Arena. My journey to where I am today started at college, where I studied criminal justice with the intent to join the FBI. Late in my college career, I realized that was not the path I wanted to take, so after I graduated I enlisted into the Army.

During my time in the Army, I developed a passion for investing and building wealth. After serving four years as a Military Intelligence Systems Maintainer out of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, I transitioned into the civilian equivalent to my job in the military, a Systems Administrator.

After working on computers for about five years, I decided I wanted a career that is more in tune with my passion of investing, so I chose to become a real estate agent.

I love talking all things real estate and find it extremely interesting and exciting. I could talk for hours about the topic, and love educating people who are interested in learning. As a veteran, I was happy to find a place of business that focuses on working with and educating Active duty service members on the benefits of property ownership, because that is directly in line with my interests. It’s easy to perform at a high level when you love what you do, and I will stop at nothing to make sure you get the best experience when it comes to buying or selling a home.”

Wesley Rowell


“My name is Wesley Rowell, and I am a former Navy Operations Specialist of 5 years. I was born and raised in the small town of Perry, Georgia. I enjoy golfing, hunting, playing my guitar, and bible study in my free time. 

 Inspired by my father’s own service in the Navy, I decided to join in hopes that I could become more cultured and grow and mature as an individual, as he had. Immediately following high school, I joined and was stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia with Maritime Expeditionary Security Squadron 2. Here I deployed to the U.A.E and provided maritime security to High-Value Assets in the port of Jebel Ali. Through my service, I cultivated skills such as attention to detail, order, accountability, and discipline, and discovered my passion for helping others. 

It is my hope that I will be able to utilize the skills that I’ve acquired to make your home-owning dreams a reality.”

Cory Varner

After months of hard work and dedication, I am proud to say that I am a licensed Realtor in the state of Georgia. I have been given the privilege to work with American Veteran Properties in the effort to assist veterans and soldiers, along with their families, establish financial security. I am proud to have the opportunity to continue to serve the military and their families as a Realtor. I look forward to seeing where this career path takes me!”

Tobie Stanley


Hi, my name is Tobie Stanley. I was born and raised in Northern Minnesota. Yes, it was cold! Immediately following high school I joined the Marine Corps, after the Corps I moved to Chicago where I went to college and served in the Illinois Army National Guard. After that I found myself enlisting in the United States Coast Guard. This turned out to be the best decision of my life. The Coast Guard has been an amazing career. In all I have served 23 years.

My wife and I started buying and selling real estate in Savannah, GA in 2017. When we began, I had no idea how much I would fall in love with real estate. Every aspect excites me and the opportunities are endless. I’ve moved dozens of times with the military, I’ve bought and sold my personal homes, flipped many houses and I own rental properties. I’ve also served in 3 branches of the military, I understand the fears of becoming a first time home buyer and the excitement that comes with real estate investing. Additionally, I’m passionate about making your BAH and veteran benefits work for you. I feel like these aspects all make me very relatable and I’d love to have the opportunity to work with you, no matter what your real estate goals are.
