Before entering real estate, Steve was President and stockholder of Tennessee wall décor manufacturer Marlock, Inc. from 1988 through 2003, when he sold the company. It was one of the largest employers in the Union County, Tennessee, with over 100 employees. It manufactured typically 24/5 at the Tennessee plant and also outsourced from Mexico and India.
