Since I was a boy, I have been driven to succeed. At nine years old, I started collecting cassette tapes of motivational speakers, business advisors and audio books that I would play repeatedly on my Walkman. I drew pictures to hang on my wall of the car I would drive when I grew up, the house I would live in, the vacations I would take. At thirteen years old, I started my first little business and since, have gone on to launch several businesses, including a 65-agent call center with 13 retail stores and hundreds of sales representatives throughout the United States, becoming the largest sales organization in my industry.
In 2002, I met my beautiful wife, Angela. We got married, bought a couple of houses in Sisters, Oregon and quickly realized the incredible financial benefits that come with owning property. It was at this point that I knew my career would eventually turn in the direction of real estate.
After purchasing our second home, we had our son, Tristan. In 2011, we brought him on our first trip to Maui. We were hooked! We could not get enough of the soft, sandy beaches, the warm ocean water and the aloha spirit throughout the island. Shortly after, we had our precious daughter, Gemma and in 2013, returned to Maui once again with our full family of four.
After 17-years in Central Oregon, my wife and I decided we were going to start living life more intentionally. We pulled out a map and asked ourselves, “if we could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?” Maui won, hands down. The next logical question was, “what do you want to do?” The answer to that was simple, real estate! We listed my business for sale, rented our house and moved to the number one island in the world, Maui!
As an entrepreneur, business owner and community leader I have learned the value of hard work and the importance of taking care of people. I am a perpetual learner, waking up early every morning to study, being the first one in and the last one to leave. I know what it takes to be successful in this business and, more importantly, I do what it takes. I am a professional, the one you want working for you in the business of buying and selling real estate.
