A Naval Officer with 23 years on active duty, I retired from the Navy in 2005 and started a new career in real estate in my adopted home town of Albany, Oregon. After realizing that many people had misconceptions about real estate that cost them money and heart-ache, I developed the concept and began as host of Real Estate Talk on KGAL radio in January 2007 to try to get realistic information out to the public. I moved to RE/MAX Integrity in 2008. My approach to real estate has, since the beginning reflected the same core values that I learned in the Navy; “Honor, Courage, and Commitment.” Given my military service, my membership in Rotary International and as the son of a nurse and the brother of another nurse, partnering with Homes for Heroes® just felt like the right next step to continue that tradition of service. Thank you for giving me this amazing opportunity to give back.
