Tell us a little about your business.
I’m the proud leader of a handful of excellent agents who operate under the Professional Realty Group. We strive to offer impeccable customer service to our clients, both buyers and sellers, who are our number one priority.
How did you get started in the business?
A friend who’s also a realtor said he thought I would do great at real estate. I took a chance, got my license, and the rest is history.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
I’d say the recruiting aspect. I’ve been fortunate to find several new, highly motivated agents who are a great fit so far but there’s still plenty of room for us to grow.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
In 2017 I hit a personal record, closing over $20M in production and 90+ transactions.
Tell us a little about your family.
I’m married to my best friend, Andrea, who is also a talented real estate professional and co-founder of PRG, and have two wonderful kids, Vincent (14) and Brynn (5).
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
Obtaining my real estate license and getting married. Both were definitely game changers.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
Hanging with my family, relaxing.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
That’s a story for another day. I only tell these things to my clients…
What are you the most proud of?
My kids, wife, and my agents. All rockstars.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Never become complacent. There’s always a bigger and better goal to achieve.

There isn’t one; I absolutely love what I do.
What local non-profit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why?
More than I can list, because I enjoy being a philanthropist.
