I am eager to be of service to you!
Getting licensed when I turned 21, I had a fascination for real estate at a young age. I had been working in the health and fitness industry for years before making the switch to full time realtor. I started my real estate career with Stedman's Real Estate, a small, independent office in Johnsburg, Illinois. I was there for almost 6 years and moved to Re/Max Plaza in McHenry, Illinois for the remainder of my time in the state. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and skills from my time at these two offices. I was very happy in Illinois but I always felt the Island of Maui calling for my return after many visits.
After moving to Maui in 2012, I represented buyers and sellers along the West side of the island up until 2018. Also referred to as Lahaina side, I focused my business between Kaanapali and Kapalua. Everything from small, single family homes to multi-million dollar vacation properties was my marketplace here. I was very happy to be representing the real estate community in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Now, after over 14 years in the Real Estate Industry, I am leading clients to their real estate goals here in the Central Valley of California. I have a very approachable demeanor, and the ability to work successfully with all types of people. I feel that being in the real estate field all these years has enabled me to really develop the skills only the best in the industry can provide. Being able to anticipate issues/concerns well before they surface, my goal is to make the experience as smooth for you as possible. I have represented clients in all types of real estate including residential, commercial, industrial, vacant land and agricultural. Managing daily tasks well and approaching my work with very clear communication is my focus as I feel this is key to successful transactions. I am known to build strong, lasting relationships, and provide guidance well beyond expectations. I enjoy being creative with my problem solving skills and negotiations. This allows me to streamline costs for buyers and sellers alike, along with being diligent and persistent with my marketing efforts for my listings.
Being from a family of green thumbs, and craftsman, I have been exposed to many types construction and trade work. I have a keen eye for recognizing areas of concern when viewing properties and helping sellers prepare their homes for marketing. I have completely remodeled two homes that I’ve solely owned and been part of the trade work on many more over the years.
2011 was a great year for me as I received the gold level award from Re/Max Plaza for 'Most Sales Written'. I became certified through a top producing sales course called 'Masters Edge' and became a Zillow 5-Star Agent. I currently hold an active Brokers License in Illinois, a Salesperson License in Hawaii and a Salesperson License in California.
In my freetime, I am still a health and fitness enthusiast. I try and make it to the gym 3-4 days a week and have been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/MMA for about 12 years. I’d say my absolute passion is for the outdoors and the wild world. Being a sportsman and backcountry adventurer my whole life, I have been rewarded with some amazing experiences out in the wild. I have a very respectful relationship with Mother Nature and we challenge each other on the regular. My dream in life is to eventually own a very large tract of land and be completely self sustainable through farming, wildlife management and utilizing my skills as a craftsman. I'd like to have a few dogs too!
