About Me

For a first-time homebuyer, the process can feel overwhelming, but my mission is to make that process easy and understandable. I can help find the right property including the neighborhood characteristics that matter most to you. I retired from Navy, after a great 21 year career, and helping people achieve their piece of the American Dream is my true passion. I remember how hard it was buying my first home. Renting just seemed easier, but I knew there was something to be said for owning. I will never look back. I am proud to be a part of this program and make taking that first step easier. I look forward to helping you achieve the goal of Homeownership!
