Memphis' leading Web 2.0 Real Estate Broker, Consultant and Social Media Networker. I specialize in in-city properties - Downtown, Midtown, and East Memphis.
I utilize Web 2.0 techniques and social media to serve the needs of my clients. I got into the real estate business in 1996 after a professional career in the corporate world. I worked as a radio announcer and as a river boat captain, in my younger days, before management positions at two major corporations. I have been a top producer since entering the business, representing both buyers and sellers of residential properties. My specialties are in-city properties, including Downtown, Midtown and East Memphis, including condominiums, and luxury properties. My professional designations include Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and e-PRO. I have served on and chaired committes in both the local and state REALTOR organizations. As a lifelong Memphian, I am interested in my city's politics and progress, and am active in the community. Memphis TN Real Estate.
