Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL it was just a few trips to visit family who had recently moved to Austin that quickly convinced me that I myself must relocate to this wonderful state. Each day since my arrival, I am grateful for making the difficult decision to leave behind lifelong friends to start a new life in a foreign place. With a degree in Corporate Communications, a background in construction, and as a long-time competitive athlete in team sports, my transition into new home construction sales was a seamless and natural fit. Having gone through the build process with my first new home in Round Rock more than 20 years ago, and having a positive experience while doing so, I was guided toward the new homes path in 1998. Since then, I have worked with hundreds of new home buyers to provide them the dream home experience that I was so fortunate to have received myself. Recognizing quality, understanding construction from literally the ground up, and having owned and operated both building and mortgage providing companies over the last few decades has prepared me for my latest career in real estate. Now (as an Agent) with a laser focus on assisting my buyers and sellers through the many different and challenging processes contained in the world of home ownership. As a proud and dedicated family man now settled in the Georgetown area with a fabulous Texas-native wife and the continually gratifying challenges that come from raising four beautiful children (3 girls and a boy), a strong love of animals (we are guardians to 5 cats and a dog), and a career committed to not only meeting the needs of, but exceeding the expectations of each client that I have had the privilege of working with, my “life’s calling” is just now getting ready to begin! Those who know me well have often referred to me as “the real deal”. It may sound hokey, but what this lofty compliment really means is that I have a full understanding and a commitment to client-first customer service, a get it done attitude, and a highly professional bottom line approach to delivering on all of my client’s goals and needs. My past and future successes will always come from your satisfaction, so please let my work ethic, my experience and background work for you and your family! I’m looking forward to speaking with you.
A dedicated husband, father, son, and brother who puts family ahead of all other things.
