Passion is described by Webster as "a strong enthusiasm for anything".
I believe that passion best describes my life, and my real estate career. I began my real estate career with Oakridge Realtors in April of 2000 after 15 successful years in retail management in the Cedar Valley. As a real estate agent, I quickly realized I was "well placed" in my new profession. To be able to dedicate my time and energy to helping my clients and friends was very meaningful to me. As my passion for this business grew, I knew that I wanted to take the next step and became an Oakridge Realtors Broker/Owner/Partner in September 2004. I enjoy the combination of continuing to work with my clients and friends as they make decisions to buy and sell, as well as, helping to lead our great group of agents here in the Cedar Valley. My family, friends and clients all share in making the statement, "You obviously love what you do!" And, it's true. I do!
As a lifelong resident of the Cedar Valley, my family and I are proud to call this community our home. My wife, Lori, works in radiology at Allen Hospital in Waterloo. We have four children, all graduates of UNI. Our oldest, Danielle, lives & works in Des Moines, is married and is mom to our first grand-daughter Gwenyth. Emily, is now living and working in New York. Hannah is also a Realtor with Oakridge. Elijah, our youngest, just graduated from UNI.
As a family we stay busy with sports, church, community events, UNI athletics and an occasional trip to our cabin at Clear Lake. My family and I proudly support The Cedar Valley United Way, Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp, KNWS Radio, UNI Athletics, Cedar Falls Tiger Booster Club, Boys and Girls Club, our church and many other local organizations.
We live, work and serve in a wonderful community!
