Hailing from Monroe Michigan and a graduate of NC State, Audie enjoyed a great 5-year stint playing NFL football for the Minnesota Vikings.
He married the love of his life, Caroline a year ago. After honeymooning in Croatia and Montenegro, they settled in South Inglewood and recently became a father to his baby boy. Together they like to explore the different neighborhoods of Nashville walking around new areas, visiting new parks, bars and restaurants. When not cooking and grilling at home, you will find the Coles at their favorite neighborhood restaurants, Las Maracas, Eastland Cafe, Lockeland Table, Burger Up or hanging out at Urban Cowboy, Martins BBQ, Nobles. As a member of the YMCA, he is a frequent visitor at the Margaret Maddox Y in East Nashville and has recently begun training in Jiu-Jitsu at ProfectusBJJ
Saying that Audie is an outdoorsman is an understatement. You can always join him on his run, walk, or bike ride on the greenway in East Nashville from Shelby Bottoms to the Corneila Fort Airpark and over to Three Rivers Park or grab a kayak and paddle down together around Percy Priest lake or down the Harpeth river. He also loves to hunt and fish and snowboard.
When asked, why Audie chose real estate as a career, given his sports background, he stated; “I enjoy doing a lot of different things, but I like being with people the most. I have always felt that regardless of what you are doing, the people and relationships you build doing whatever it is you do, is what makes life worthwhile.” “When looking back on my time in the NFL, what I miss the most, is not playing the game, it is what happens in the locker room. There is no better feeling than having a large group of people working towards one common, but very difficult to obtain, goal. Getting my clients across the goal line is an effort of many. I have the team in place to make it happen.
