Hello, and thank you for checking out my profile. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself.
I have been a licensed Realtor for six years now, and I am also the National Central Recruiting Manager for Zip Realty. Prior to becoming a Realtor, my wife and I were part time real estate investors, and I worked in multi-channel project and technology management. While in college majoring in religion and philosphy, I took the opportunity to take courses in real estate mathematics and real estate developement. My plan was to become a real estate developer and go into ministry someday long in the future. The Lord had other plans.
In 2006, I clearly felt the call to vocational evangelism. I began seminary to get my Master of theology and Christian apologetics degree. I left project management and became a full time realtor when I started seminary. I made up my mind to help investors, and to only own the home in which I'm currently living because I never want the investor I work with to feel as though I'm skimming the cream from the top before I approach them. I hated that feeling when I first started investing.
Besides taking 12 hours of college credit in real estate investing and real estate developement courses and countless hours of continuing real estate education, I've invested myself. I know the industry. Whether I'm working with an investor or a family, I believe it is vitally important to understand a property as an investment. A home is the single most important financial decision a family makes, and a first home can literally determine a family's entire financial future. I take that seriously.
