Montgomery native Anita Carter loves her city and is continually rewarded by her work with homegrown company Jim Wilson & Associates and its residential developments New Park and Wynlakes, where her job is sharing what makes the communities special.
How long have you been with Jim Wilson & Associates?
My real estate career spans 30 years with JWA, with the last 10 years focused on residential development and marketing for New Park and JWA.
What does your job entail?
I’m responsible for the development, sales, marketing and daily operations of JWA residential properties, including New Park and Wynlakes. In addition, I manage JWA’s corporate marketing.
What, in your opinion, makes New Park a great place to live?
New Park is a master-planned community located in the growth area in East Montgomery. Its family-friendly design includes sparkling lakes, a pool, splash pad, clubhouse, playground and a walking trail for all to enjoy. It is also conveniently located near schools, a vibrant YMCA facility and the best shopping, dining and entertainment in the city.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
It’s different every day. I could start my day reviewing construction drawings, then have a marketing meeting and end my day showing houses at New Park to potential residents. My goal is to be able to conquer each day with a smile on my face, and at the end of each day, be able to say I made someone else’s day better.
What’s an accomplishment you are particularly proud of?
I believe my greatest accomplishment is raising my children in this world today and teaching them that hard work and honesty pay off and how important it is to give back to your community and others. My oldest, Delaney, graduated from Auburn University in August with a degree in nursing. Harrison is a sophomore at Auburn University, and Wilson is a junior at Saint James School.
