Employing a client first approach to business, I have been able to build a thriving business during one of the most challenging markets in nearly 15 years.
Prior to my real estate career, I spent 26 years with the foreign service, working around the world. Living in 17 different homes (four states and four foreign countries) during my 37 year marriage, I have become a TRUE relocation specialist. What better way to appreciate the importance of helping a family sell their home an/or move into a new area quickly with the least amount of stress! I particularly enjoy working with clients who are coming from outside the region to live and work in the Washington, D.C. area.
My previous work experiences have included not only the U.S. Foreign Service, but several years spent teaching and also working in the construction field. I’ve built four homes, and done extensive renovations to each of my own homes. These experiences have certainly been an asset as I help my clients understand the quality of the homes they are considering buying and the neighborhoods in which they plan to live.
I have been an active member of my community for over 25 years. Since becoming enthralled with the KW Cares approach, my wife and I have been hosting what we refer to Military Appreciation Mondays. Through these fundraisers and an annual Christmas Gift Wish list program, we have raised more than $100,000 in support of our veterans and their families.
I have coached several sports ranging from T-ball to high school wrestling as my two sons grew up here in Northern Virginia. I have been the proud sponsor of concert on the local town center green. Most recently I founded the Great Falls Business Referral Network as a means of providing greater support to my clients and the community.
