Brett Olson wakes up every morning at 3:30 to walk and play fetch with his two adorable dogs before heading to work. It’s one of his favorite activities, but he would’ve never had the space to do it without finding his ideal home in the Huntsville area.
Read on to learn why Brett moved to the Rocket City, including what made the process super easy.
Amazing job opportunity
Brett Olson formerly worked in the oil industry, so he’s no stranger to moving around. But his move to Huntsville wasn’t fueled by oil—Brett relocated to the Rocket City to work in non-destructive testing for Blue Origin.
He works as an NDT Technician, inspecting materials used to build spaceships and other structures to ensure they’re in sound condition.
When Brett accepted his job with Blue Origin, he had not sold his house in Florida yet. So, his employer’s relocation management company—Graebal—connected him with RealtySouth who temporarily set him up in a hotel and scheduled tours of Huntsville-area homes.
Soon after, Brett heard that his house in Florida had sold—he needed to find a Huntsville home fast.
The perfect area
During the moving process, Brett talked to his RealtySouth agent about the area and community that interested him.
“When moving, it’s important to think about the ideal area for you. I’ve moved enough that I knew I enjoyed being on the outer parts of the city, away from all the traffic.”Brett Olson
Because of Brett’s desire to live in a quiet area, his RealtySouth agent directed him to New Market, a beautiful and remote town northeast of Huntsville. There he found his dream home—close enough to the Rocket City but away from all the hustle and bustle.

RealtySouth was a game changer
In order for Brett to be introduced to RealtySouth, Blue Origin’s relocation management company—Graebal—had to choose to work with them over other brokerages.
“Relocation management companies are the middleman between employers and real estate brokerages. They have hundreds of options, and they choose RealtySouth.”Jonathan Cohen, Vice President of Relocation + Business Strategy, RealtySouth
Brett has moved a lot, but nothing compares to the premier resources RealtySouth provided.
“Part of the relocation package included moving services, so everything was boxed up for me and loaded on the truck. After I closed on the house, they set me up in an apartment for 30 days and secured a storage unit for me. Once I was ready to move in, they delivered all my items to the house.”Brett Olson
