Why am I a real estate broker?

My core value is family and that is what drives all of my decisions. Although we all have our own identity, we all need a solid foundation. My family is my foundation. I have a fantastic wife and a beautiful three-year-old daughter.

Seven years ago, our family's perception of life was redefined as my wife fell ill with cancer. This put life into perfect perspective and redefined what in life was important to all of us. With strength and an amazing family, we ended up pulling through even stronger.

I graduated with a Masters degree in Business and have worked for IBM, Computer Science Corporation, and even as an 11th and 12th-grade computer programming teacher.  After years of corporate work and my wife falling ill, I finally realized I needed to have more control over my success and our overall family health.  With a bit of luck, and perseverance we ended up in Holly Springs, NC where I earned my license as a real estate broker and where we started our new family life together.  

Real estate is what I do because it allows me to have personal success, set goals to reach, and most importantly, it allows me to help my family grow. I get to do all of this while helping other families start their lives, relocate, upsize, downsize, or just become more informed about the real estate process. 


I look forward to hearing your story and helping you through this exciting process.
