I am a knowledgeable professional, loving father, and giver to the community. As I have traveled thru life’s journey I have found fulfillment by making life better for others. I can’t say that I have always made the right decisions but I now make decisions for the right reason. If I can leave this world just a little bit better place than it was when I was born I will have given meaning to my life.
I was born to help people achieve their goals. Both my father and my grandfather were in the restaurant business. They taught me from an early age that the customer is KING. The people who graced our restaurants with their presence were the most wonderful people in the world. We needed to do everything we could to make their experience enjoyable. Our restaurants were always built to allow us to see the customer before they walked in the door. When a regular customer walked into the restaurant we would have a drink on their table or an appetizer working in the kitchen. In Real Estate just like in the restaurant business, I try to anticipate the needs of my client. Taking care of the details enables them to better enjoy the home buying experience.
Real Estate is both exciting and a blessing for me. I am in a position where I can make a living and help people make one of the most important decisions of their life. Having grown up in Houston, I have seen the city change from a cowtown to an international city. I wake up every day with anticipation of meeting new people from different cultures. I get to show them many different areas of Houston and explain the history of the neighborhoods and our great city. As we explore Houston I learn about their culture and their needs. I spend my nights looking at two 22 inch computer screens searching for properties to view, writing contracts, and answering emails. The greatest joy occurs when we have found the right place. Words are not necessary the excitement in their eyes and the way their face lights up tells the story.
Experience is everything
Real Estate is about knowledge. I pride myself on my extensive knowledge of Houston Real Estate. I am on a constant quest for knowledge. Another realtor described me as “having forgotten more about Houston Real Estate than most us will ever know.” If I am not involved in a real estate transaction I am attending a class or a seminar. I am a member of two economic groups, HAR political affairs Committee, and the BIGe Technology Conference. I attend every seminar I can on technology (I built this website), water, demographics, rail, bus transportation, historical preservation, rental, economy, and the future of Houston. I have taken 80 different Real Estate Courses in the last 10 years. Real Estate knowledge is like having a gun in a knife fight.
My most fun thing is sitting at home with my girlfriend on the couch enjoying a glass of wine. Occasionally we are treated to the howling of the family poodle as he demands someone bring him his Teddy Bear. I attend St Luke’s Methodist Church on Sundays. Here, my intellectual side takes over and I ask challenging questions in Sunday school. These questions sometimes bring intensity to the class as explore our relationship to God. I enjoy meeting with friends and talking about the good old days and seeing their posts on Facebook. Most of all I just enjoy seeing the sun and feeling the energy you get from being part of the world.
