About

My career in real estate has brought success and introduced me to a variety of interesting people. I love helping folks as they navigate the more than occasionally bewildering world of buying or selling a home. As real estate professionals, we sometimes forget that the average person does not engage in such transactions thirty or more times in a given year. What we accept as a routine occurrence often seems like a roller coaster ride to others. I like to see myself as a seatbelt – a source of comfort and security – someone who can be trusted to provide a level of protection and assurance.

But as much as I enjoy selling houses, real estate is simply what I do. Who I am at the core is a man greatly blessed by a thirty-plus-year marriage to Judy and the father of a pair of magnificent adult sons, John and Tom. Along with our faithful dog, Lucky, they bring joy, fulfilment, and peace to my life.

In the last eight years, I have discovered two new interests. In 2014, I leapt out of my comfort zone and participated in the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile hike that begins in France and treks over the Pyrenes Mountains to the final resting place of St. James. 2020, an odd year for all of us, was supposed to be my sixth time on the pilgrimage. I will renew my tradition soon.

The Camino sparked my second endeavor – writing. When I came home from my first Camino, I recorded my adventures in a book entitled Two Million Steps. In 2021, I released my first novel entitled High Crimes Against the Crown also centered around the arduous journey.

As I write about characters, real and fictional, I recognize areas in my own life I want to improve. It remains my most earnest desire to use every day to improve as a husband, as a father, as a friend, as a professional, and as a human being.
