  • I have been active in real estate since 1964 except for 5 years with the U.S. Air Force in the late 1960’s and hold the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. I am active in the community because I believe firmly in giving something back. My philosophy is simple “always do your best, and then some”.
