Thanks for stopping by.
The largest and most important investment most people make is their home. You should not be expected to work with an agent to help you sell or purchase a valuable asset without first knowing something about that person.
Here is a brief summary for your consideration. I hope it will help you to be comfortable in considering me to be your real estate representative.
I am the oldest child of a large family. I was raised in Des Moines and have lived here most of my life.
I graduated from North High School and have taken numerous professional classes at DMACC and many other educational venues.
I have been happily married to my wife, Susie, since 1974, and though we have no children of our own, we have lots of nieces and nephews.
I have been a REALTOR® serving individuals and families throughout the Des Moines and surrounding area continuously since 1976. I was associated with First Realty (Formerly Stanbrough Realty) from 1976 to 1988, and have been associated with RE/MAX since 1988. Many of my clients have worked with me numerous times and recommended me to their friends, their sons and daughters, and other relatives. A recommendation is my greatest compliment.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Iowa Association of Realtors and the Greater Des Moines Association of Realtors, and I enjoy good working relationships with professionals from all of the various Des Moines Area Multiple Listing Service companies. I consider the MLS one of my most important tools in assisting my selling and buying clients.
I work with both buyers and sellers, and I think of myself more as an educator than as a salesman. You can have confidence in my ability to help you find and purchase the home of your dreams or successfully market your present home. Use the "About Me" tab to see some kind words from some of my previous clients.
I would be honored for the opportunity to assist you in achieving your real estate goals, and please introduce me to people you care about who could benefit from my real estate services. I promise to serve them with the best of my ability.
I look forward to building a successful real estate relationship with you.
