I was raised in western Ohio, where I learned very early the value of hard work and dependability. At a young age, I worked on my grandfather’s farm in multiple phases of the dairy industry beginning with the basics of stall cleaning, feeding and milking.
After college, I went into the service to fulfill a lifelong childhood wish to become a military pilot. Following flight school, I had the opportunity to do a tour of duty in Viet Nam. Arriving back in the states, I had the good fortune to be assigned as a flight instructor for the remainder of my service.
Following my military experience, I found myself in medical sales for the next 23 years, working with pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and heart valves, which proved to be a very challenging, interesting and rewarding career. I had the opportunity to work with doctors implanting the devices or in the OR. I was also able to do follow-up with the patient at the doctor’s office after they were discharged from the hospital.
Over the years, my wife and I took several vacations in SW Florida and fell in love with the area. So in 2002, I sold my company and established residency in the beautiful community of Pelican Landing in Bonita Springs. It was one of the earlier gated communities to have a multitude of amenities such as a 34 acre island in the gulf with sparkling beaches, two 18 hole golf courses, sailing club, scuba diving club and 12 Har-Tru tennis courts for some of the best tennis in the area. This was the perfect location to immerse ourselves in our favorite hobbies of golf, scuba diving and flying.
Shortly after becoming established, I had the opportunity to help a friend locate a home in the area. I found the experience of helping him discover the perfect home very rewarding. My real estate career began.
15 years later, I have been involved in numerous opportunities working with both buyers and sellers to determine the best fit or negotiate the best sale. I have watched the SW Florida area explode throughout both Lee and Collier counties as it has become one of the most sought after locations for both retirees and investors.
I have a passion for making sure my customers have the very best real estate experience and look forward to helping you with yours.
