“I strive to be a positive influence, a steady voice, and above all let my integrity lead the way.”
Growing up in Central Ohio, the Midwestern roots of my youth are heavily instilled in me. From my work ethic to my demeanor, I am a believer in getting the job done and getting it done the right way for my clients.
In college, at the University of Dayton, I worked third shift for a large manufacturing company, putting myself through undergrad. After graduation, the company moved me to Atlanta, where I worked as a systems analyst for the next five years. It was in 2004, when I realized I was spending more time dreaming about the beauty in old houses and exploring the unique neighborhoods in Atlanta than I did getting excited to go to my corporate job every day, that I decided I needed a new career. So after talking to a friend in the business, I got my real estate license and started dabbling in it. I was selling a couple of houses a month and after a year of learning the ins and outs of the business, I took a leap, leaving my job and beginning a new adventure that allowed me to work daily with what I’m passionate about – tapping into my knowledge of local communities and being the go-to resource to my clients.
My timing was impeccable…not long after I got into real estate full-time, the Great Recession occurred. I knew I had to make a go of it, so I dug in my heels, putting that Midwestern upbringing to the forefront, and forged ahead. I steadily grew my business in a down economy and began adding team members.
In 2006, Rick [Hale] asked me to join the Keller Williams Intown Atlanta office and in 2016, he and I merged our team’s, creating a unified group that consistently ranked at or near the top of the Keller Williams Atlanta Midtown market center. Now we are thrilled to be teaming up with Pam [Ahern] and her group to form RPM Group Home Advisors, where we believe in transforming our clients’ real estate experience. By being trusted advisors, we provide advice, guidance, and our expertise on the home buying process, the market, and the Atlanta neighborhoods, so that our clients can make the decisions that are best for them.
On a personal note, I’ve been married since 2006, have twin daughters, and a dog that finds any possible way to escape our backyard to explore. I enjoy restoring my 1997 Jeep Wrangler, spending time on the lake, and volunteering. I’ve helped run the Neighbor in Need program in East Atlanta since 2015, sat on the Governance Board of Burgess-Peterson Academy for five years, ran committees for East Atlanta Strut, the Porch Press, and have spent years serving on the Advisory Council of PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill animal shelter.
Everyday my goal is to help others – from my team members, to my family and friends, to the community – I strive to be a positive influence, a steady voice, and above all let my integrity lead the way. I’m thrilled to be on this journey with our great team and look forward to serving you in your real estate needs.
