President

After spending his childhood years in Athens, Georgia, swimming on scholarship for the University of Georgia, and working on a Panamanian freighter plying the waters of the southern Caribbean, the president of LAH entered the Birmingham real estate market in 1977. Maurice is happily married to his wife Marian, and they have two children and five perfect grandchildren. Maurice’s real estate experience includes commercial and residential site acquisition and development, property management, office and retail leasing, and commercial sales. Maurice was one of the three original founders of LAH in 1992 along with Jim Lawrence and Keith Arendall. In the fall of 2011, Maurice joined with Tom Carruthers, Charles Robinson and Mike Graham to acquire the ownership interest of Lawrence and Arendall, and at that time Maurice became the chief operating officer of the company.

“For me LAH is a gift, it is such an  honor to work with the best people in the best industry in the world.”

Charles started his career in real estate in 2007 through his partnership with Tom Carruthers with their purchase of an established property management company, Property Managers, Inc., which they later rebranded as Red Rock Realty Group.  They have since grown Red Rock into a full-service commercial real estate company with a team of over 30 people.  In 2011, Charles, Tom, and Mike Graham purchased ownership stakes in LAH from founders Jim Lawrence and Keith Arendall.  Since that time, LAH has grown by adding many agents, staff, and several new offices.  Charles currently assists the other owners and managers with LAH’s strategic planning.  He is an Alabama CCIM Chapter Board member, a member of the ACRE Leadership Council, and an usher at St. Stephen’s Church.  He is married and has four children.
