If you or someone you know is interested in buying or selling real estate…I can help. Let’s get to know each other a bit…
As a Denver native of 40 years, I am passionate about metro Denver real estate as well as our community. I grew up in Southeast Denver and attended Denver Public Schools K-12, which also exposed me to the Five Points, Cole and Baker neighborhoods at an early age. My mother owned a business on Denver’s west side for about 20 years — growing to about 45 employees — and my sister was an aide to a former Denver Councilperson and is now a local nurse. I’m on the board of a Denver neighborhood association. And I live in the south metro area with my wife and three kids.
Would you be surprised if I told you I was quite active growing up? Yup, I fit the Denver persona… alpine and telemark skiing, lacrosse (HS All State), soccer, tennis, football, Odyssey of the Mind (world champion team), piano, hiking, camping, fishing, mountain biking… Colorado has a lot to offer!! And I’d like to help you live in a place where you can take advantage of it.
My experience with real estate started as a kid. In the early 1980’s my Dad was into rentals and fix-n-flip properties on a part-time basis. Imagine me as a young kid with a screw driver, hammer and paint brush trying to “help” on the weekends. In the 1990’s, you might have found me painting the large garage doors or cleaning floors of my mother’s 14,000 sq ft business building during the summer. About 15 years ago I bought my first house and eventually rented it out, only to return a couple more times before turning it into a rental again. Looking back today, buying that house was one of the best things I ever did! In 2012, my dad and I got into the fix-n-flip business and have rejuvenated several houses, many of which became the best on the block. While I enjoyed the process of improving houses in our neighborhoods, there was something missing. I wanted to apply my knowledge to help others. Hey, that’s where you come in…
As a licensed Colorado real estate broker and a Realtor held to a higher standard, I am here to help you navigate buying or selling your next home. One thing that sets me apart from other Realtors is that in addition to being your advocate and real estate advisor, I understand real estate from several viewpoints and have had skin in the game before, perhaps as you do now, and have felt first hand the turbulence real estate can offer: bad roof, sewer line replacement, foundation problems, major interior renovations, lending snafus, etc., etc. I have developed quite a network and have substantial resources to benefit you in the home buying/selling process. I am in this to help you, wherever that takes us, and see that you achieve your real estate goals.
That’s why I say… Put me to work for YOUR real estate needs the next time you buy or sell a home. While people find me to be friendly and a team player, below the surface I am analytical and a natural problem solver, which will ensure your home buying or selling process is smooth from start to finish.
Contact me to start the conversation… you know something about me now and I would love to learn more about you. I’m here to help.
