Wade Shealy

Founder, CEO and Chairman

With over 30 years in the sector, Wade Shealy is one of America’s top leaders in resort real estate development, marketing and sales. In 2010, in response to a market need to help second homeowners realize more value in their ownership, he founded and launched THIRDHOME, the industry’s premiere luxury property and travel club.

Wade is recognized as the visionary force behind a series of high-profile real estate development projects. Most notably, the purchase, vision and development of Hampton Island, Georgia, an exemplary coastal community with one of the lowest impacts to the surrounding environment.

Hampton Island, a 4,000-acre private community off the Georgia coast, was cited in Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” as one of the top three private communities in North America. Hampton Island became the second home to Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Gardner, Ben Affleck, and Robert Mondavi, among other high-profile residents. The Hampton Island development was featured in numerous publications and won national awards for architecture and design.

Wade graduated from the University of Georgia equipped for his future with far more than an Honors degree. Working for straight commission, 80 hours a week with the Southwestern Company selling bibles and educational books door-to-door, prepared him early on for many years ahead of entrepreneurial leadership.

As a college student, Wade rose through the ranks to become one of the organization’s top salespeople, along the way recruiting both the largest student team, and the team selling the most volume, in Southwestern’s 155-year history. As a District Sales Manager, he was named “District Sales Manager of the Year” for each of his four consecutive years in that role.

In 1984, Wade began working in resort real estate, co-founding The Pinnacle Group in 1986 and growing it into one of the largest and most successful real estate companies on Hilton Head Island and the state of South Carolina.

As Vice President of Intrawest, a premier North American mountain resort and adventure company, Wade directed sales and marketing for 12 different resorts with locations from New England to the Caribbean, successfully closing over $500 million in sales, annually. During his years in resort real estate, he developed and sold more than $3 billion in real estate.

Wade has been featured in national and international publications, most notably the Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times. He also enjoys returning to his alma mater, the University of Georgia, as a frequent lecturer to the Business School, as well as to he College of Environment and Design in Landscape Architecture.

Wade was instrumental in the creation of the Land Conservation Program for the State of Georgia and subsequently appointed by the Governor of Georgia, to the State Board for Land Conservation, serving for five years. Under Wade’s direction, tens of thousands of acres of pristine land were protected. He was also appointed to the state’s Marshland and Wetlands Protection Committee and voted the “Tree Friendly Developer” for the state of Georgia.

Wade lives on a horse farm outside Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee, along with Quarter horses raises bees and Tilapia. Inspired by his early background in nature preservation, he designed and built a natural swimming pond on his farm, one of the first of its kind in the US. When he is not riding horses or traveling around the world, Wade can be found riding his Harley on the back roads of Tennessee. Wade has three children, his youngest attends Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, his daughter lives in Austin, Texas, and his oldest son is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Virginia Tech.

Traveling the world has been Liz’s destined inheritance from day one. Between her father’s Southern roots in Tennessee to her mother’s land of Ancient Greece, she was born into an exotic, jet-setting way of life to parents who were global nomads. Since early childhood, Liz has acquired a collection of passport stamps. It was only natural that her compass led to working within the travel profession.

From Silicon Valley to Music Row, Liz has tailored memorable travel experiences for Fortune 500 CEOs, hit music makers and celebrities. As a Certified Travel Specialist, Liz earned her wings working for American Express Travel first as a top-producing Pacesetter agent, then as an Elite Team Leader and a Branch Manager, all the while catering to discerning Platinum & Centurion Cardmembers. While spearheading bespoke natural history travel programs for one of the world’s leaders in nature travel whose clientele ranged from exclusive environmental protection organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, The Audubon Society, and the World Wildlife Foundation, Liz developed a deep respect for our planet and the protection of all its fragile and beautiful natural wonders.

With 28 professional years of travel planning under her belt including traversing the globe to over 65 countries and living in multiple foreign locales, Liz has gained exposure to many diverse cultures and always immersed herself within unique local experiences – ranging from diving on underwater archaeological photography shoots in the Aegean to promoting the preservation and natural habitat of the wild jaguar population in the Cockscomb Preserve of Belize.

Mike joined the THIRDHOME team in August 2015. In his current position, he ensures that THIRDHOME members get as much out of their membership as possible. Prior to joining THIRDHOME, Mike was the Corporate Partnerships Manager for the Carolina Hurricane’s AHL affiliate, Charlotte Checkers, and more recently for the Oakland A’s Triple-A affiliate, the Nashville Sounds. There he worked alongside many large companies including Gold’s Gym, Geico, Coca-Cola and Papa John’s, helping them develop strategies to activate their sponsorships within AHL and the Triple-A. Early last year, Mike strapped on his guitar and backpack and headed for the rain forests of Costa Rica to live a little, surf a little and pick a little. Recently, he’s been spending his free time with his new six-stringed baby, a Fender Telecaster guitar.

Romonte was born and raised in Nashville, TN. Always being the generous sort, Romonte began to volunteer with many charities and youth development centers after graduating from Tennessee State University. After a tenure as the Director of Acquisitions for a corporate housing company, Romonte decided to come back to his roots. He moved back to Nashville, joined the ThirdHome team, and set back to exercising his two loves, working with people and traveling. When he isn’t helping people or jet-setting, he’s rooting on his favorite teams, listening to as much music as physically possible, and working on his break dancing moves.

New Memberships, Director

Zach Gates talks to prospective members and partners on the great benefits that a THIRDHOME membership can bring. He also assists in helping new members apply to the club and guides them through the approval process, so they can start traveling. Zach is originally from the Dallas area and he attended Texas A&M for undergraduate and graduate school. If you have ever worked with Zach, you have definitely heard him mention the word, “Aggie.” He worked in commercial real estate for several years in Dallas before moving to Vail, Colorado where he worked in travel and hospitality for six years. Zach moved to Nashville in 2012 and continued his career in travel and hospitality.  He and his wife have been married for a year now and are proud parents to their puppy, Billy Gates. When Zach isn’t talking about SEC sports, he loves hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, and paddle boarding with his wife. Zach’s favorite hobby (and downright obsession to be more accurate) is definitely snowboarding, especially in the backcountry.  He has visited Guatemala, Mexico, England, Scotland, Wales, Bahamas, Barbados, Indonesia and Japan, and will be heading to Italy and France this summer.
