Why I'm an Agent
I love helping and working with people. My biggest fulfillment is getting people and families from the life theydream of obtaining and turning that into reality. There is nothing more satisfying then seeing the smiles and joy of a client when they find THEIR home.
I grew up in Wisconsin on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. It’s easy to develop a fascination with unique buildings in my hometown, Racine, where homes and businesses by architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and other notables are scattered throughout. Thus, my love for real estate started in these formative years.
Growing up and in high school I was a four season athlete in addition to being the drummer of a rock band. I credit those experiences with instilling a strong individual and communal work ethic, team dedication, and perseverance which I now apply to my career. I graduated from William Horlick High School and choosing to remain close to family, I attended the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee to study Sociology over the next few years.
I moved to Madison, our beautiful state capitol, to pursue new experiences personally and professionally in 2011. Before starting at Stark in 2015, many knew me from my role as Wine Cellar Manager and Sommelier at Madison’s premier restaurant, L’Etoile. The leadership there promoted excellence and sustainability by sourcing local food and investing in our community. I was a proud part of their team as our service ethic resulted in national recognition in several lines of service including the wine program from the lauded James Beard Foundation.
My early interest in real estate coupled with my desire to help others in a hospitable manner has brought me to venerable Stark Company Realtors. Stark conveys an image I believe in and live by: family, community, and sustainability with over 100 years as a family owned business here in Madison – it was an easy decision to work here. I believe my time studying Sociology and performing business sales has fine-tuned my attention to understanding people, not only listening to what they ask for but educating them on how to close in on a more perfect match. In working with me, you can expect a proactive full-time Realtor dedicated to his clients, an aggressive negotiator, timely responses to your inquiries in all forms of communication, and most importantly an honest advisor. I often tell my clients when I first meet them that I only work with people I want to work with and I would expect the same from them. This should be a fun experience and what you get with me is who I am as a person. I pride myself in my honesty, integrity, and the proactive manner in which I run my business. These practices and skills have resulted in me being acknowledged at the Stark Company’s 2016 All Staff Meeting as the “Best of the Best” for agents with up to 2 years in the company and making the same list for the entire company.
When not working I enjoy staying fit, golfing, spending time with family and friends, attending Wisconsin sporting events, traveling, experiencing new restaurants, working with my investment properties, and volunteering in a community garden to feed needy families. In August 2015 I completed my first triathlon – a goal I had for several years. I would like to take on your challenge next. Allow me to compete for you to find the home of your dreams!
