Purchasing or selling a home is a large financial step for many and often occurs at a critical juncture in life. I have helped clients on all levels: whether buying a starter home, moving up to dream home, liquidating estates or acquiring investment properties. I love real estate for all its benefits; such as, the pride of home ownership, the tangible results of sweat equity and the investment potential. I also love Denver for its legacy as The Mile High City, home of the Broncos, entrance to the Rocky Mountains, vibrant downtown life and access to amazing outdoor recreation. My wife and I have 3 wonderful daughters and we can’t think of a better city to raise our family. Here is a little about me and my journey to real estate.
My wife and I love Denver’s older homes and neighborhoods and we purchased our first home in central Denver. We spent countless hours in sweat equity to update the home, which included tiling at 2 am in the morning and painting while hanging from ropes on the steep Victorian roof. We converted our first home to a rental and then purchased a second home and repeated the updating process all over again. This experience sparked my interest in real estate.
I received a BS in Geology in 2002 from Wheaton College, and then started as a Hydrogeologist and GIS specialist for a consulting engineering firm. I continued to work for the firm for nearly five years and gained analytical, presentation and professional skills. During this time my passion for real estate grew.
In 2007, I decided to obtain my real estate license and embark full-time as a real estate professional. The transition to real estate has been a perfect match for me. Through assisting clients with their real estate needs and my own real estate purchases, I have accumulated countless experiences with negotiations, creative financing, renovations, rental property management, investment property analysis and more. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share what I have learned to help others succeed. My goal is to be a resource and advocate for my clients and help them make good real estate decisions.
Because of the opportunities my clients have given me, I have had great success in real estate and have been recognized by 5280 Magazine as a “5-Star Agent” for multiple years and by the Denver Board of Realtors as a “Top-Producing Realtor” for multiple years. I have also become one of the top performing agents in Denver’s neighborhoods.
