Education and Training

I received my license to sell real estate in 2009 and began my career in Real Estate as an Agent with Coldwell Banker in October that year. It was then that I made the commitment to attain the highest level of Real Estate education, and learn all I could about my new chosen career field: I invest as much of my spare time as possible learning Arizona Real Estate and Arizona Real Estate Law. Following State required courses I completed exhaustive Coldwell Baker corporate training classes.
By 2011, with the experience of many transactions, I held the designation as a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and enrolled in 90+ hours of voluntary course work, to earn my designation as a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI). The course work and knowledge gained taking the classes for these designations is invaluable to my own expertise and for the welfare of my clients.
By April of 2014 I completed all requirements for my Arizona Broker's License.

Personal Background

A California native born and raised in the central California city of Fresno, transplanted to Tucson via the United States Air Force. An Air Force Carreer took my family and me to many different locations between 1977 and 1999. Together, we have lived in Cambridgeshire, England, United Kingdom; Southern California; Las Vegas, Nevada; the Hill Country of Austin, Texas; and finally, our last Air Force Duty Assignment, Tucson, Arizona.

My Military backgound is primarily Aircraft Maintenance. In 1984, I was hand selected to be one of the first 500 maintenance people assigned to the F-117A Stealth Fighter program, and I subsequently helped accomplish several "interesting" assignments. I retired from Active Duty with the rank of Master Sergeant and many years experience as Production Superintendent for Aircraft Maintenance and Logistical Affairs; War Readiness Planning and Execution; and Maintenance Supervision. I am a Veteran of the First Gulf War and the Haiti and Bosnian Campaigns.

After Military service, settling into the Tucson Community was a matter of choice. My wife and I have owned two homes here and put our son (and myself) through college while living here. Living, working, and enjoying the Tucson area since 1992 my wife and I have a very good knowledge of the Community. Susan, my wife, is not only my life mate but my team partner: Together we make a great Realtor Team because we not only know the area, but understand real estate needs for both civilian and military families: We know the dynamics of frequent moves and the importance of establishing roots.
