About Me

As a young man, I visited Western North Carolina where my family had a vacation home on a creek with a beautiful mountain view. Some of my best memories were made during those times. I always dreamed of one day owning my own home in this spectacular place, and continue making memories that would last a lifetime.

I was born and raised near Savannah, Georgia. After receiving a Masters in Health Administration from Georgia Southern University and Armstrong Atlantic State University, I launched my career as an Executive Director of Skilled Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities. During my 15 years in this field, I learned to be an active listener, skilled negotiator, and how best to help others in need.

My love of Western North Carolina called me back in 2014 where I met my wife and built the home I had always dreamed of having. I enjoy hiking, visiting waterfalls, traveling along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and spending time on the Biltmore Estate. Every day I am grateful to live in the Leicester/Alexander area and be able to call these mountains ‘home.’

Helping others achieve their real estate dreams has become my passion. I’ve never met a stranger, and am up for any challenge. Whether selling or buying, I can assist you on your journey.

Seven years after moving to WNC, I started my real estate career in the midst of the pandemic, in March 2021. Using the knowledge and skills from my 15 years in health care, I bring patience and understanding to the complexities of real estate transactions. By listening to my clients’ needs, I strive to make the selling and buying process as enjoyable and stress free as possible.

My stellar communication skills, knowledge of the market, charisma and dedication, provide the tools to give each seller or buyer exemplary service. The numbers clearly show my success, as I sold over $10,000,000 during my first full year in real estate.

I pride myself in coming up with creative solutions, following through on my promises, and working harmoniously with others for the best outcome. No matter if you are a first time home buyer, luxury seller, investor, or anything in between, I’d be thrilled to work with you

Ask An Expert


Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
