After reading a lot of other peoples Bio’s, I still have a hard time with this part. I know this is where I’m supposed to tell you that I’m the smartest guy in real estate and I will effortlessly make your real estate dreams come true (all while I’m not busy rescuing puppies, feeding the homeless or saving the Rainforest). Or maybe, I’m supposed to tell you that I’m a Scorpio who likes sangria and long walks on the beach. Actually, I think that’s a different social media site, but I digress…
The fact is, I’ve been in real estate all of my adult life starting in my late teens. I started working on properties by mowing lawns, painting, roofing, hanging drywall and almost everything else associated residential and commercial real estate. Fortunately, I was able to move on and managed to earn a degree in Economics and finance with an emphasis on real estate from the University of Texas at Dallas. After graduation I worked as an appraiser, real estate agent, employing broker and, as an avid investor owning close to 400 properties. I’m a Certified Negotiation Expert (currently working on a Master’s certification), I hold a Managing Brokers License (the highest form of RE Licensing in Colorado) and I’m now working to earn a CCIM Designation (an elite designation earned by only 6 percent of commercial real estate practitioners around the world).
At the end of the day, I love the real estate business and get a tremendous amount of satisfaction helping other people with their real estate needs. Real estate is a relationship business and I’ve learned that everyone has a unique story. I’d welcome an opportunity to hear yours if you’d like to grab a cup of coffee, meet at my office or if I can help in any way. I’d love to hear from you and get to know you
