REALTOR I Investment Specialist
License Number: 361043
My real estate experience started in my early twenties when I became an outside sales manager for a building supply company in Illinois. Having learned as much as I could about the construction industry, I then took that knowledge to the field of appraising. I was a Certified Real Estate Appraiser for 12 years, and owned and operated my own appraising firm in Charleston, SC. In addition to being an Appraiser and published author, I was also a real estate investor, buying income-producing properties for both short-term and long-term leases. Additionally I owned a flipping company, buying distressed properties and bringing them back to their former glory. In 2016 I married my beautiful wife Amy, and we decided we wanted to start a family. We wanted to take a few years to ourselves before having kids and go on an adventure, so I retired from appraising in 2016, closing the 5 companies that I owned at the time, and my wife and I moved to California to hike and explore some of the most incredible terrain we’d ever seen. While in quarantine in 2020, my wife and I learned we were going to be parents. Once our baby girl (Josie) arrived, we couldn’t wait to get back to the Southeast to be around friends and family. After satisfying my call to the wild, I was also ready to get back to my first love…real estate. I decided to become a real estate professional so I could help others on their journey to find a place they could call home. I bring over 20 years of real estate experience, and also specialize in helping investors find income-producing properties for their portfolio, as this is still a personal passion of mine. Please know that I’m always available to help in any way that I can. It is my honor to serve you.
