Definitely not redbud. Are the leaves rough, like fine sandpaper, on the top? If so, it's probably Slippery Elm https://www.carolinanature.com/trees/ulru.html or American Elm (more likely) https://www.carolinanature.com/trees/ulam.html. If not, it could be Japanese Zelkova https://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=a927
