About Me


Probably the most common question I get asked by new clients is, "How long have you been in Real Estate"? I know it may sound a little obscure, but I actually started my education in Real Estate at around age 8. I'm the prodigy of parents who were both successful entrepreneurs involved in real estate investing, property management, business development and finance. From a young age, my parents would educate me on the important aspects of buying, selling and real estate investing. I began absorbing a lot, and quickly developed an understanding of the skills and abilities necessary to put a variety of transactions together from both a buyer and seller standpoint, however I never realized how important that education would be until later in life.

After graduating from Northern Arizona University, I went on to continue my education at Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences and Arizona Heart Institute followed by a successful career in Non-Invasive Cardiology. However, I never lost my continual interest in Real Estate and after 16 years in healthcare I decided to follow my true passion and pursue Real Estate full time. 

Real Estate Interests

Initially, I took a keen interest in Vacation Rental investments and founded Hidden Hideaways, LLC, a company that provides marketing, advertising, promotion, website development and property staging for unique vacation rentals worldwide. As a Nationally Certified Professional Property Stager I'm able to utilize my background in artistic design to help clients optimize the look of their homes for optimal sale or rental pricing. However, by expanding my business to include all aspects of real estate, I found personal gratification by bringing that same level of service excellence and dedicated commitment to home buyers and sellers both locally and internationally. Although I particularly enjoy working with professional athletes and those in the luxury market, I also enjoy helping buyers, sellers and investors in a more modest price range and I regularly consult new investors and vacation rental owners on how to successfully increase their return on investment. aim to provide each client with an exceptional experience while functioning as a liaison before, during, and after their transaction.


We generally know relatively quick if we're going to work well together. Not only do my clients appreciate my upfront and honest reality, they appreciate that I take the time to understand what they’re looking for in a home or investment property, and once we've established what you want to accomplish, I work tirelessly to provide you with quality and efficient service. My goal is to thoroughly understanding your needs upfront and to utilize my skills, resources, talents and experience to ensure you’re comfortable and well informed throughout the entire process. My integrity, honesty and professionalism with buyers, sellers, vendors and other agents have allowed me to establish strong relationships, while ensuring that goals are met with your best interests in mind.


I've truly never cared about being the #1 sales agent or a part of the billion dollar club, I always just wanted to focus on giving each of my clients my best, and helping them to achieve their desired outcome. You'll find I work tirelessly to assist my clients to achieve their goals and negotiate strongly on their behalf. I seek to ensure all aspects of your real estate transaction are handled smoothly, efficiently and beyond your satisfaction. My skills, abilities and experiences correlate well with my interest in providing the best possible service and meeting the needs of my clients.


I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for the support and encouragement of my amazing friends and family. As a single father of 3, I understand how busy life can be for working professionals. When I’m not working hard for my clients I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, exploring unique places and enjoying the outdoors. I've never been one to turn down a new adventure!
