More About Me

Business Philosophy

As a real estate agent in the majestic Tucson area I proudly serve my clients to the highest degree and ethical standards. Areas that I cover, but not limited to are active adult communities, golf communities, the Foothills, Tanque Verde area, and the northwest part of Tucson.

I believe a POSITIVE ATTITUDE is a life priority!

My career spans over 30 years in upper management, overseeing all aspects of sales, advertising, and marketing for homebuilders. I was responsible for sales training, goals and profit margins, managing accountability, understanding buyer and seller needs and motivations, analyzing market trends and current values in both resales and new homes. One of my direct responsibilities has been working with homebuyers and sellers to ensure complete customer satisfaction throughout the entire process and thereafter. I firmly believe this is a valuable asset in my career as Associate Broker with Coldwell Banker.

I am a graduate of Western Illinois University, with a bachelor's degree in Business Management and minor in Advertising and Marketing. Although my roots are in the Midwest I "adopted" Arizona as my home many years ago.

My goal is to make your real estate experience an excellent adventure in your next phase of purchasing or selling.

I live on a ranch in beautiful Tucson with my wife Julie (who works in new homes sales at SaddleBrooke Ranch, an active Robson adult community in northwest Tucson), our quarter horses and paint horses, and our big dog (German Shepherd). Our two daughters live nearby in Scottsdale.

I am an avid horseman, but also love the thrill and excitement of the underwater world of scuba diving, and always take every opportunity to enjoy a fun round of golf. I like to travel and discover new places, meet new people and share life experiences. When I have spare time, I train our horses new tricks, participate in the occasional rodeo, or lounge poolside with a good book.
