James White, DDS
Agent at Great Southern Land
James White grew up in the small rural town of Hornbeak in Northwest Tennessee with a strong connection and appreciation of land. He spent most of his childhood hunting, fishing, and exploring the beautiful landscape of his hometown and the very rare geological formation caused by an 1811 earthquake only seven miles away, Reelfoot Lake. Beginning at six years old, James worked alongside his father on their family farm picking cotton, throughout his college years at University of Tennessee where he obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Zoology, and continued farming while attending The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis where he graduated with honors.
For the next 18 years he practiced as a dentist in his home state of Tennessee, before moving to Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he practiced dentistry for 27 more years prior to retiring. James and his three children (and now one grandchild) continue their family tradition of embracing the land and enjoying all of the benefits it has to offer. James owns and co-manages a thousand-acre farm that consists of seven hundred acres of row crops and three hundred acres of hardwood timber and Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land. He believes that good stewardship of the land is an ongoing process that is imperative to ensure that our future generations have something to sustain them.
James is a real estate agent with Great Southern Land in Tuscaloosa, Alabama serving the upper west region of our state including Tuscaloosa, Fayette, Walker, Jefferson, Lamar, Greene, Hale, Sumter, Marion, Winston, and surrounding counties. He takes pride in helping his clients with all of the aspects of buying and selling land. His love and knowledge of the widely diverse terrain of the Alabama outdoors is unparalleled, as well as his passion for the conservation and management of its wildlife. James is an active member of Ducks Unlimited, Quality Deer Management Association, National Rifle Association and The Church of the Highlands in Tuscaloosa.
