I grew up in a small, rural, farming town in southern Ohio, where I learned the value of integrity and a strong work ethic. I then had the honor of serving for four years in the United States Marine Corps, ending at Quantico, Virginia, where I met my wife. I have now been happily married for 23 years, and am the proud father of two children… a daughter who is a sophomore in college, and a fifteen year old son.
After the Marine Corps, I entered the law enforcement field as a Virginia State Game Warden, and was later recruited by, and worked for two other law enforcement agencies, in Virginia and Georgia. Deciding that I wanted a different life for my family, I took the initiative to enter the highly competitive field of corporate private investigations, specializing in insurance fraud investigations. Ultimately, I formed and ran one of the most successful investigative companies in Virginia for more than 10 years.
In 2004, I embraced real estate sales as his new career. My success in the real estate industry speaks again to a strong commitment to integrity, and a strong work ethic. I also found that my love of statistics, numbers, and cutting edge technology serve me well in the real estate industry. This is especially true in understanding and educating clients on market values and market trends.
I have received numerous rewards over the years at various companies, including the Shooting Star Award in the Virginia Region as a rookie agent, Team of the Year, Leadership Award, and Distinguished Agent of the Year.
My business philosophy and what I strive to deliver to every client, can be summed up in three words… “Integrity, Compassion, Expertise.”
