Before my real estate career began, in 1976, I taught American History for four years. My real estate career has been influenced by my desire to teach. I never assume, I always ask questions, I listen, listen, listen, I want to help people achieve their goals, I have the utmost respect for individual dignity (you can not ask me a stupid question), I respect the profit motive provided all parties to the transaction profit, I want the people I work with to be able to recommend my services with enthusiasm, I want to produce results.
I am an avid amateur woodworker and I still have all my fingers on my remaining hand...just kidding. I love to play golf and do so with infrequent displays of competence. I love the beach at all times of the year. I am a news junkie and I have very definite views on the state of the world and our role in it, but I keep them private. I like to think I have a good sense of humor or a good amount of senseless humor. I usually get invited back to peoples houses.
I have added boating to my likes, in fact it has moved ahead of Golf by a wide margin. it offers me optimum time to think, reflect and make decisions in an incredibly serene environment. I recommend it to all.
Staying relevant is a key component for my dignity and value. It is not easy and I am often frustrated with the avalanche of "New" shinny buttons to pursue. I remain convinced that if you focus on: Finding more and better buyers and sellers, convincing them to work with you and Working with them to build Loyalty you will be able to stay on course and determine which of the "New" buttons will help you accomplish these three things.
