After a successful 12 year career in real estate in Memphis, I moved back home to continue that career here in the Fountain City. Born and raised in Columbus, I went off to school to earn a B.A. in Business Administration from Furman University, followed by an M.B.A in Finance from the University of Memphis. Corporate finance was my profession until, in 1996, I got the "bug" for real estate. And the rest, as they say, is history. (I did take off a little time to attend culinary school, where I graduated with Honors! Now, I only use those skills cooking for my wonderful wife, Polly.)

I attribute my success in real estate to a few keys factors - hard work, accessibility, solid and constant communication and ethics. What goes around comes around in this business, and I pride myself on treating people like I would like to be treated.

When I am not buying and selling homes, I mostly enjoy spending time with my family, especially with my wife on Crimson Tide Saturdays! I throw in a little travel, golf and fishing occasionally, too. Polly and I are members of St Luke UMC, where I serve on the Administrative Board, sang in the Chancel Choir and taught Sunday School. Polly and I are also involved with M2540, a spirit-based homeless ministry. Polly and I have four children (with a grandbaby on the way!) - David, Paul, Parker and Carter - two boys, two girls - all of whom their parents are extremely proud.

I would be very honored to help you with your real estate needs. No one will work harder, be more professional or care more about your real estate needs than me. I take this profession very seriously (except when it's time to laugh!). Buying and/or selling a home shouldn't be the most stressful thing you do this year. Having the right people on your team makes all the difference. Forget about keeping up with the Joneses - let me assist you in BECOMING the Joneses!
