DIRECTOR, SPORTS+ENTERTAINMENT DIVISION
Lyonel loves to motivate people to succeed at a high level and to achieve results that they may have once considered impossible. His enthusiastic and powerful leadership style was evident in his professional sports and coaching career and is a staple of his real estate sales career. His approach to his work is simple, but much more than a few X’s and O’s. Lyonel leads his clients by example with my passion for life and his commitment and dedication to achieving his client’s dreams and goals.
Over the years, Lyonel has been fortunate to play or coach with some of the best teams in the country – Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas Jayhawks, Indiana Hoosiers and as a former strength coach for the Rice Owls and the Houston Cougars Football teams in Texas.
His sports career led him to experience team work and goal achievement on the world’s biggest stage – from the NCAA Sweet Sixteen to beating his Alma Mater’s college football rival for the first time in over a decade. As a player, a coach and an agent, he knows how to develop the right game plan for success, and most importantly, execute and achieve the goal. Lyonel routinely aids the Houston Texans, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Cowboys.
Lyonel manages all aspects of the representation we give to players, coaches and executives from all professional sports leagues as well as our entertainment clients, and knows that high-profile real estate transactions require a deeper & broader reach than most agents can provide. Along with discretion techniques to protect our high-profile clients, BFRE Sports + Entertainment unlocks access to exclusive buyer databases & nationwide off-market listings.
