Q: What made you become interested in real estate?

A: Desire to help people, passion for real estate, and helping people build wealth.  

Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?

A: I had a bad weather day for a three-hour open house.  No one showed up.  My wife wanted me to come home before it was over.  I stayed and with 2 minutes left a couple showed up. We hit it off, and it turned into a wonderful business and personal friendship. They didn’t buy that house, but I helped them find the pedestal rehab property for their family. We have celebrated many birthdays and great times at their home!


Q: What was your favorite moment in your career so far?

A:  Helping a woman buy her first home.  A wonderful soul, a cancer survivor and an American Red Cross worker—she had bad credit due to all her hospitalization bills. I must have talked to over 29 different lenders until I found one who would help finance her property. At the closing table, it was hard to keep the papers wet from her tears of joy!

Q: What do you wish you had known when you first got your real estate license?

A:  Buying a house is not as hard as I thought!

Q: In what ways have you seen the real estate industry change since you started?

A:  I was a mortgage loan officer from 2003-2008 when just about anyone could get a loan. That was the days of “No Income No Asset” loans. No wonder we went through a huge real estate crisis from 2008-2011! But we have bounced back in a big way and real estate is now a very solid investment.

Q: What’s the most challenging part of your job?

A: Trying to work with people who are unaccountable or have unrealistic expectations.  

Q: If you could sum up being a real estate agent in five words or less, what would you say?

A:  Hustling persistence makes it happen!
