About Me

For many, buying, selling or even renting a home home can be a major investment in both time and money. It can be a very emotional process and most often the largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime. As a Real Estate Professional I understand it's important to choose an experienced professional that understands your needs and is there to assist you through the vital steps of complex real estate transactions. Here's a little information about me and why my clients continue to choose me as their real estate professional.

My Background

Although I've lived in various parts of the country, most of my life has been spent in Arizona. I provide real estate services to all areas of Arizona, however most of my focus is in the East Valley and Rim Country areas. I know it may sound a little obscure, but I actually started my education in Real Estate around age 8. I'm the prodigy of parents who were both successful entrepreneurs involved in real estate investing and property management. From a young age, my parents would take me along to preview homes and land and I would always enjoy seeing what unique styles people had, but more importantly I began absorbing a lot, and quickly developed an understanding of the skills and abilities necessary to put a variety of transactions together from both a buyer and seller standpoint. I also worked hard helping my parents rehabilitate some of the "less desirable" properties and really enjoyed seeing the final outcome of the "diamonds in the rough" they developed, but never realized how important that education would be to me until later in life. After graduating from Northern Arizona University, I spent the next 16 years in Non-invasive Cardiology (where I occasionally still help out) before I decided to follow my true passion and pursue my continual interest in Real Estate. 

My Interests

Initially, I took a keen interest in Vacation Rental investments and eventually founded Hidden Hideaways, LLC, a company that provides marketing, advertising, promotion and website development for unique vacation rentals worldwide. I regularly consult new investors and vacation rental owners on how to successfully increase their self managed return on investment. However, by expanding my business to include all aspects of real estate, I found personal gratification by bringing that same level of service excellence and dedicated commitment to home buyers and sellers. Although I particularly enjoy working with professional athletes I also enjoy helping buyers, sellers and investors in a more modest price range and I  aim to provide each client with an exceptional experience while functioning as a liaison before, during, and after their transaction.

My Commitment

No matter what your real estate goals, I take the time to understand what you’re looking for in a home and/or investment property and tirelessly provide you with quality and efficient service. My goal is to thoroughly understanding your needs upfront and to utilize my skills, resources, talents and experience to ensure you’re comfortable and well informed throughout the entire transaction. My integrity, honesty and professionalism with buyers, sellers, vendors and other agents have allowed me to establish strong relationships, while ensuring that goals are met with your best interests in mind.

My Vision

I've truly never cared about being the #1 sales agent or a part of the billion dollar club, I always just wanted to focus on giving each of my clients my best, and helping them to achieve their desired outcome. I tirelessly work to assist my clients with achieving their desired outcomes, negotiate and ensure all aspects of your real estate transaction are handled smoothly, efficiently and beyond your satisfaction. My skills, abilities and experiences correlate well with my interest in providing the best possible service and meeting my clients real estate goals.

My Family

I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for the support and encouragement of my amazing wife Sara and as a father of 3 myself, I understand how busy life can be for working professionals. When I’m not working hard for my amazing clients I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring nature and unique places. 

Real Estate Accomplishments

I have helped buyers, sellers, investors and tenants from all walks of life and from many different countries worldwide. I’m a recognized member of the National Association of Realtors where I hold the credentialed designation of RSPS (Resort & Second Home Specialist). Currently, I'm the ONLY licensed real estate professional in Arizona  to hold RSPS certification with a focus in Vacation Rentals. I'm also a member of the Arizona Association of Realtors, the Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors, and the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service. I have been an active member of the Southeast Regional Association of Realtors and previously held a position on the SEVRAR Property Management Committee. I always look forward to sharing my knowledge with my clients.
