Gold Key Realtor® GRI® CNE® SRES® MRP® FMS
I know how much discipline it takes to save enough to buy a house, make the mortgage, insurance and tax payments and then keep it all maintained. I’ve been there several times myself with some good experiences and some… well, not as good. I also know that buying or selling a house will be a major financial decision and because of that, I realize it’s NOT my job to sell you a house or to help you sell yours.
My primary responsibility is to give you my best and ongoing advice that will lead to a buyer seeing your home as their future dream home; and to help buyers find that dream home. I will be your guide through this real estate process that can often take weeks or even months to complete… and it will be my privilege to have you as a client - and eventually a friend.
I’ve lived a blessed life which has taught me to be grateful for the promises and lessons of another day, as well as to be kind and thoughtful with those I meet. Professionally, I have accomplished a great deal and now it is my duty to give something back. This is not a boast, it is simply giving credit to all the wonderful people who taught me everything I know and who were instrumental in shaping me into the man I am today… particularly my father.
When asked, I don’t hesitate to state that my highest achievements can be seen in my five adult children who are constant reminders of how much greater and wiser a person can be, and how much there is still to learn. Most importantly is my acknowledgement that I had the very good fortune to meet and marry the perfect woman, Joan… the proverbial Good Wife; my constant supporter and truly the light and love of my life.
