Thanks for checking out my page and giving me the opportunity to tell you a little about myself! Let me start by saying that I love my job. I love helping people and I love everything about the real estate business.
I was born in Gastonia, NC and lived there until I joined the military shortly after my 17th birthday. I spent 20 years in the United States Navy and retired as a Chief Petty Officer in 2010. During my time in the military, I was a Corpsman (medic) serving with the United States Marine Corps. My job was to help people, and I loved my job, but all good things must come to an end. After my retirement, I moved back home to the Charlotte Metro Area.
I have three adult children (empty nest!) and I live in Charlotte, NC with my beautiful wife and our two dogs. The home that we live in now is the first home I’ve ever owned. During my years in the military, I moved around a lot and home ownership was not practical for me. When I finally settled down here in Charlotte, I was ready to buy a house and finally settle down and grow some roots.
I loved every aspect of buying my new home. From the search to the closing table, it was so exciting…but nothing compared to the feeling of getting those keys. I knew right away that I wanted to be in the real estate business. I wanted to be responsible for helping others achieve that same feeling that I had on closing day when I received my keys.
Whether you are a first time home buyer, a real estate investor, or you’re looking to sale your current home, I would love to help you achieve your goals.
