After working for several years as a small business owner, property manager and general manager, I decided it was time to do something I really enjoyed.  So in 2008, just as the housing market was falling off a cliff, I got my real estate license and then, three years later, my principal broker’s license.  I was able to survive the “Great Recession” and learned many lessons along the way.  Now, I’m looking forward to putting my experience to work for you. 

My real estate philosophy is simple... “Serve others”.  This obviously means serving my clients and going the extra mile for them but it also means serving those in need.  

One way I have chosen to serve those in need is by supporting an organization that is making a difference in people’s lives.  I have committed to my clients that I will donate a portion of my income to an organization called Destiny Rescue (DR).  DR’s mission is to Rescue, Restore, Protect and Empower children who have been trafficked or trapped in sexual exploitation with little hope of freedom.  My goal is to provide enough financial support to fund at least one rescue per month.  In 2016, DR was able to rescue a total 485 children and more than 500 were rescued in 2017.  It has been a blessing for me to be a part of the work that DR is doing.  For more information on DR you can click their website or Facebook page  

Please give me a call or send me an email to learn more about how and I serve you.

Personal Note:

My wife, Khonda, and I have raised 4 kids, Makenna (married to Joshua Humlie), Brock (married to Anna), Joelle and Dawson.  I love travel, books, sports, and just about anything that includes being with family and friends.
