I was born in Portland, Oregon. I moved to Phoenix, Arizona area when I was about 3 years old. I have lived in the Phoenix area since 1974. I have watched much of our area turn from farm fields and citrus trees into our current sprawling mecca of people from all over the world.
I went to high school at Shadow Mountain High School near 32nd Street and Shea Blvd. I attended Paradise Valley Community College and then moved out to the ASU West campus to finish my education. I purchased my first complete-renovation home near the ASU West Campus. I still remember purchasing my first home. It was truly an amazing and prideful experience, that drew me to real estate long ago. This home really began my love of the metro Phoenix West Valley.
I then worked as a Licensed General Contractor in the Phoenix area for another 17 years, which was based near Interstate 17 and Deer Valley Road. I have purchased multiple homes in the West Valley since that time. My contracting business let me learn much about the trade I currently work in, and ALL areas of our metropolitan area. I got out of my contracting business in 2006, and continued managing and investing in commercial real estate. It was not long before I changed careers to an account manager and stayed in sales within the aerospace machining industry for approximately 10 years. This job helped me hone my negotiating skills of multi-million dollar projects. During this time, I transitioned into Real Estate, which was something I always wanted to be involved in. I have been a full time real estate agent since.
I began following Christ Jesus in October 2008. My desire to serve God and others has transformed my life and LOVE for OTHERS. I married my best friend in May of 2013. We have 4 beautiful children which I love with all my heart. My oldest daughter is in the Marines, stationed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. Our other children are still at home in Peoria, Arizona.
I have always loved competitive motorsports. I love anything competitive, to be honest. I have watched and raced just about everything with less than four wheels. I love the outdoors, cruising up the river in Lake Havasu with my family, and running my Polaris RZR all over this beautiful state. I absolutely love the area we live and work in and plan on calling it my home for a long time. People say it gets really hot in Phoenix, Arizona. I say, “I make a better lizard than I do a duck or a penguin!!” I absolutely love Arizona!!
I sell real estate because I absolutely love what I do, and I LOVE helping others. If you do not believe me, just ask a few of my recent clients. I always have current references for you to speak with!!
