Well hello there! Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me. I mean, you could have chosen to read about any Realtor in the state, but you're here with me and I'm feeling pretty special right about now. Unless you're just weird, you probably don't spend time reading agent bios, so I guess that you're hear to learn a little about how I can help guide you and your family to your next home.
For over twenty years I've been helping folks just like you find their dream homes and to navigate the sometimes challenging processing home-selling or buying. And I've got to say, I love what I do! I grew up in Virginia, and I've decided to stick around even after raising my three awesome daughters (and our furry friends, Jett the Golden Retriever and Rosie the rescue kitten) with my amazing wife, Jennifer. I'm passionate about this area, the people, and the rich history that it holds. Plus, it's pretty awesome to watch our region grow and evolve.
But hey, this isn't about me and my story. This is about you and how I can help you write your own. Whether you're looking for your forever home or need to sell your current one, I'm here to be your wingman, your confidant, and your guide through this chapter of your family's story.
So let's do this thing, shall we? Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned real estate pro, I'm here to help you make the most of your journey. Give me a call, shoot me an email, or let's meet up for a cup of coffee and get to know each other better. I promise I'll be the supporting character in your story, helping you write the happy ending you deserve.
You may be a first-time home buyer or a veteran seller, but every move is the beginning or end of a chapter in your life. You have enjoyed or will enjoy entertaining, raising a family, playing with your first dog or just the reprieve of a safe harbor in this home. It’s more than just a “transaction”, it’s part of your life. My role is to help you navigate through the process to the best of my trained ability.
For a long time, I’ve helped clients with the real estate part of their story. I’ve had clients refer me to their children and their children then refer me to their children. Working with three generations in the same family and being trusted by them is an honor for me.
I’ve been with clients when they’ve received a call that their child was accepted to the school they’ve dreamed of and I’ve been with clients when they get a call that their parent has died unexpectedly. I’ve met with young mothers after their husbands have died and with parents who have just found out that they’re having a baby after years of trying. It is an honor to be trusted by all of these families to help them with the often complex process of buying or selling a home. I would be honored to partner with you for the next chapter of your life’s story.
Aside from assisting clients with their real estate needs, I travel inside and outside of the country teaching other real estate agents and brokers. I teach specialty and advanced training programs, as well as risk management, marketing, and technology programs. I have been honored with many accolades for my contribution to this industry in teaching others to give exceptional service to their clients and to protect those clients during their transitions. If I'm trusted to teach others how to be exceptional, then shouldn't I be putting those skills to work for you and your family?
I am the Executive Vice President of Coldwell Banker Elite where I have the privilege of seeing one of the highest-performing and best-trained agents in the Commonwealth. I am a licensed broker in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
I spend a tremendous amount of time investing in my own knowledge and training to ensure that my clients have the best possible representation.
Over my long career, I’ve been honored by peers and clients for the service I’ve provided. Here is a list of a few of those acknowledgments.
