What is a 14-year law enforcement veteran doing in real estate?
Aaron Bourland has served as a patrol officer, a crime scene detective, and a member of the crisis intervention team, along with other roles. In 2020, he retired his Evansville Police Department uniform, turned in his gun, and began to pursue a career in real estate.
The uniform of a police officer might look different from that of a REALTOR®, but many of the skills Aaron acquired have been helpful in his new profession. Working with people, developing relationships and helping those in need are all important qualities of a great real estate agent.
A great personality, patience, attention to detail and time management, honesty and integrity are important qualities as well, and Aaron is used to thinking on his feet, finding practical solutions for his clients. After all, if he was able to handle a case with the crisis intervention team, you can be sure he will handle your real estate transaction with ease.
A native of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, Aaron moved to Evansville in 2007. He graduated from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale with a bachelor’s degree, majoring in administration of justice & political science.
Aaron currently lives on Evansville’s east side with his wife, Kristen, and their Boston Terrier, Leelu. He loves spending time with family, traveling to new places, hiking and staying active. He trains in martial arts including jiu jitsu, boxing and more. And while he can be found cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals, he is a fan of sports in general and collects sports memorabilia.
