A REALTOR® in Bellator’s Mobile Office, Annette Oden has a proven track record as a local listing agent with more than 5 years in the industry. A large portion of her business comes from friends, family and previous client referrals – a testament to her love for the industry. She enjoys always being able to be “a student of real estate,” continuously learning newer, better ways to help her clients. She has been awarded as a 2018 Multi-Million Dollar Producer, along with various other monthly/quarterly awards for top listings, closings and office culture during her time as an agent.
Before becoming a REALTOR®, Annette spent years serving local churches as children’s choir director, kids worship coordinator and children’s pastor. She found great joy in the years following through teaching other worship leaders and writing, publishing and producing, children’s music, curriculum and musicals. She was nominated for a Dove Award five times for her musicals, winning the award in 2004. When the music publisher she primarily worked for was sold, she decided to take her career in a different direction. Annette turned to a fellow colleague who had launched a real estate career to serve as her mentor as she transitioned into the real estate industry.
Annette attended Tennessee Temple University and Southeastern Baptist College. She and her husband, John, who is also a REALTOR® with Bellator, have been married 33 years and love spending time together, which she calls a blessing since the two are almost empty nesters.
In her free time, she loves to garden, write and watch old movies. Annette also enjoys baking, especially when needing some quiet time. There’s something about the quietness of the process and the sequential steps set against the randomness of experimenting in the kitchen that’s creative and cathartic, she says, noting her friends don’t seem to mind her stress-baking too much either.
