I moved to Phoenix in 2000, from Illinois, in order to escape the winters and play golf year round. I worked as a Network Engineer but I became interested in real estate after selling my first home in 2004. Unfortunately, a lifetime of heart disease kept me down for a number of years before finally getting my license in 2008.
I was well under way in real estate until, once again, my heart had other plans. I was forced to slow down and lead a subdued life. After many setbacks and hospital stays, a miracle was delivered on December 14, 2013. I was blessed with a new heart and a new life. Not a day goes by that I do not feel sorrow for the donor family, but I am eternally grateful for their gift.
My family and I now reside in North Phoenix where my son and I enjoy our busy lives together. The gift of organ donation is the most sincere and humbling gift anyone can give but, sadly, there are never enough organs available for those who need them.
I try to keep a work/life balance which is one of the reasons why I tend to have a small client base and never manage more than a few clients at a time. I want to be able to give home buyers and sellers the attention to detail that is required for each transaction rather than always keeping an eye out for the next client.
