He spent a more than a decade trading FHLMC(Freddie Mac) and FNMA(Fannie Mae) securities. When he married his wife, Jennifer, she was then and is still a mortgage loan officer. She convinced him to join her as a loan officer at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. For 18 years they were a mortgage team working with Realtors, builders and home buyers from all economic and ethnic walks of life.
During the volatile real estate/mortgage era of the mid 2000's, his friends/colleagues convinced him to transition from mortgages to real estate. He did and has never looked back. He still maintains relationships with pass clients that depend on his assistance with mortgage questions.
But now, along with his wife who has 26 years experience as a loan officer, processor and mortgage underwriter they make a dynamic team....covering both real estate---sales, listing, buying, property management and all aspects of mortgage lending.

WHAT IS THE DEVINE SHOWCASE MODEL HOME PROGRAM?
DEVINE SHOWCASE HOMES offers a service designed to assist Realtors and Property Owners in marketing their vacant listings.
We provide a professional Home Manager through our network to care for the home and working with our interior design team beautifully furnishes and decorates the vacant house creating a model home atmosphere. The Manager occupies and maintains the property while it is on the market. The home shows beautifully and enables potential buyers to appreciate the value of the home.
The house is safeguarded against weather damage and vandalism, and is not subject to excessive insurance premiums. Insurance premiums on vacant properties are 400% OR higher than on occupied properties.
DEVINE SHOWCASE HOMES is responsible for utilities, lawn and pool maintenance, and other holding costs such as pest control and fertilization. The property may remain on lock box and is available for showings with a courtesy call from 9 AM until 6 PM daily.
DEVINE SHOWCASE HOMES secures the property, reduces holding costs and helps you market the property in the shortest amount of time. We focus on properties valued at $400,000 to multi-millions.
A DEVINE SHOWCASE HOME demonstrates a high level of comfort, practicality and value for which the buyer can relate. Increase the salability and perceived value of your vacant property while decreasing your holding costs and marketing time.
