When introduced, I tell people I am a FULL TIME, PROFESSIONAL REALTOR®. Why do I specify Full Time, Professional? Because unlike many REALTORS® this is my fulltime profession and single source of income. I emphasize PROFESSIONAL because I have been a REALTOR® for over a decade and was in the telecommunications industry for over 30 years before starting my real estate career.
My first year with Ebby I achieved their top “Star” level and have been a Top Producer every year since. I was voted as the “New & Emerging Business of the Year in 2015” by the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce.
I recently saw statistics that said Texas has over 500,000 real estate agents. So, you might ask, what makes me different the than other 499,999. Good question! My response is, 3 major items.
- Prior to real estate, as previously noted, I spent over 30 years in the corporate world of telecommunications. During that time, I successfully managed numerous multi-million accounts, all of which demanded exceptional customer service.
- Professionalism and responsiveness are two of attributes I brought with me from that environment.
- Since entering in to real estate, I have always been in the top 20% of both local and national agents in sales
After acquiring my real estate licenses, I continue to pursue additional training. To date I have over 250 hours of post licenses certified training. This helps me enhance my skills in special areas and allows me to better serve my clients and their unique needs. I have achieved the following designations and/or designations:
Coming from a telecommunication background, I have always sought to keep up with the latest in technology. This, combined with the power of Ebby’s technology departments, allows me to provide my clients with state of the art searches, property tracking and client follow-up.
On the personal side; my wife of 44+ years and I moved to Rockwall from the north west tip of Plano in 2013 to be closer to our only daughter and son-in-law, but mainly our two grandkids – Brady 7 and Landry 5. Since moving to Rockwall, I have had the opportunity to go through the Citizens Police Academy, Citizens Fire Academy and Leadership Rockwall - Class of 2016.
Currently I serve on Rockwall’s Planning and Zoning Commission, am an Ambassador for the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce, am on several non-profit boards in Rockwall and am very active in our local church Life Group.
