WHAT DID YOU DO PRIOR TO REAL ESTATE?

I worked with my father in the excavating business, then decided to pursue the carpentry trade. I’m also trained in home inspections which, along with my construction background, comes in handy when showing homes to my clients.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNIQUE THING ABOUT YOU?

I’m 1 of 9 kids. As a child, I quickly learned how unique we were when observing the reactions of people finding out how many of us there were! I also have 5 young children, one boy and four girls.

WHAT ARE YOUR THREE FAVOURITE BOOKS?

For fiction, The Lord of The Rings Trilogy (J.R.R. Tolkien). For education, anything on real estate! For inspiration, The Bible.

WHAT’S AN EXPERIENCE THAT HAS MADE YOU A STRONGER PERSON?

One of my children spent seven weeks in the NICU after being born. It was a roller coaster of emotions and gave me a new perspective on life.

WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL MORNING ROUTINE?

Early rise, reading, watching the kids begin to trickle down the stairs, have breakfast as a family, then off to work.
