Personal:

 

I moved to Arizona in 1979, lured by its vast open spaces and a casual lifestyle.  From the mystique of the Sonoran desert to the lush forests of the high country, the natural beauty throughout Arizona offers the boundless beauty and endless outdoor opportunities I was seeking.

 

In 1990, I left a corporate regional sales management position to begin my real estate career.  Recognizing long-term growth potential in the West Valley communities of Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Avondale, Estrella Mountain Ranch and Palm Valley, yet having access to and knowledge of the entire Phoenix metropolitan area, I decided it was the best place to start my career.

 

Since that time I have enjoyed working and serving in the community. My leisure time consists mostly of family trips to Northern Arizona, golf, fishing and sports, both as a participant and a spectator.

 

My wife, Carla, is a native Arizonan, born and raised in the community I serve.  We have been blessed with a daughter, Kylie.

 

Friendships grow out of building relationships with my clients.  As a result, my business comes largely from referrals from clients I have served in the past and continue to serve.  I hope you give me the opportunity to help you in the sale and purchase of your home.  Please contact me for more details about Phoenix, the West Valley and the services I provide.
