I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended Cincinnati Country Day School
and the University of Cincinnati while majoring in accounting. I later raised my family on
a farm near Batesville, Indiana for over ten years along with our horses, goats and
Mastiff dogs...a great life.

I was once SVP of the Commercial Lending Division of a major Midwest bank and I have
owned various businesses involved in travel, publishing and real estate development.
My wife of 45 years and I have five children including our two biological daughters and
three adopted foster sons. We have three granddaughters who also live in FL. My real
estate experience includes the past ownership of one of the largest independent real
estate companies in the country with nearly 900 agents. I have also sold real estate on
the small island of Deer Isle, Maine in a two man real estate office. Thank you Dutch
from Deer Isle Properties. I have sold real estate in Vermont with Lang McLaughry Spera
the largest and best brokerage firm in VT and Northern New England.
The relocation of a family member brought us to the St. Augustine/Ponte Vedra area
where we currently reside in Nocatee in Del Webb Ponte Vedra. Over the last 35 years in
real estate I have sold farms, million dollar mansions, condominiums, large tracts of
land, one mobile home and everything in between. I have been relocated, helped those
who were being relocated, worked with many first-time home buyers and several
wishing to retire.

My skills start with being a good listener and finish with being a tireless advocate of my
customers and clients desired real estate goals thru the closing and beyond.
