I’ve always believed in the saying that there are no strangers - only friends we have not yet met. Having been an Austin resident since 1993, I have watched the skyline change as well as the faces in this town.
With the city growing so much, there is a lot to know and consider when navigating and learning the Austin real estate market. As a Realtor, Advisor, and Real Estate Strategist, I find it extremely rewarding to help people with what is often their largest financial investment. Focusing on a long term relationship, I always look forward to our time spent together focusing not just on the task at hand but also the long term planning of their Real Estate health. My father wrote many letters and words of wisdom to me over the years and when he shared the quote “Land is the basis of all wealth” it stuck with me from that day on.
The Austin and Hill country area isn’t just my home, it’s my life’s work. Every day I meet and speak with people who are relocating for work, buying and selling homes because of growing families or retirement, remodeling their homes, interested in investing in real estate, and all of these people have questions and need good help. These friends (old and new) need someone they trust who can educate, advise, and guide them in the Real Estate market. I take great pride in being exceptional help those people in what can often be a complicated and even emotional process.
Prior to my career in Real Estate, I was able to make lifelong connections as an Advanced Placement Statistics teacher and then as a Director at Camp Longhorn. As a Statistics teacher, I was able to help over 90% of my Advanced Placement exam takers acquire college credit with over 50% of those attaining a perfect score. As a Director at Camp Longhorn, I wore many hats including budgeting, project planning and management, staff training, and development and oversight of the 8th grade Leadership program. Working closely with the students, campers, and counselors over the years, I am thankful for the opportunity to impact them back then and on through today. Having already helped some of these formers students and camp connections with their Real Estate needs, I am proud of my lifelong commitment to the people and the relationships I build rather than just the task at hand or just a transaction.
In addition to helping people with their Real Estate needs, I am a proud husband and father. Together, my wife Keri and I enjoy leading and inspiring our own personal campers Reagan, Owen, and Reese and spending time with them on family adventures, hiking and biking in Austin and beyond. As my father did before me, I enjoy passing on words of wisdom to them as I look to help them and my clients attain successful futures in every area of their lives.
If you know of anyone in need of assistance with anything home, homeownership, or investment related, please have them reach out. I always look forward to connecting and helping out friends I just have not yet met.
