While each of us may be buying or selling a home for very different reasons, most tend to want the same thing from a real estate agent -- a competent, honest professional who will do the job they're hired to do so our families can avoid as many headaches as possible.
Before coming to RealtySouth, I had the good fortune to spend most of my adult life working in government and as a community volunteer. The largest portion of my time was devoted to helping people like you and me navigate often tedious rules and find real solutions to the problems they were facing. I guess I'm one of those curious individuals who wants to leave the world a little bit better place than I found it.
In many ways, I see my career in real estate as a chance to do that on a more individual basis, and I am truly excited about this opportunity to help folks across our area realize their personal goals.
I also feel privileged to be affiliated with RealtySouth. With the largest share of local residential listings, outstanding agent training, and the best web presence of any real estate company I know, RealtySouth offers top quality resources for our clients.
Because of my background, I operate from a very simple idea -- always put the client first. I welcome the chance to bring the highest level of service to you and your family.
