"Bridging the Gap Between Buyer and Seller Since 1992"

Who We Are and What We Can Do for You

I became an agent in 1992 after retiring from a 26-year career as an Air Force pilot. During my time in the military, I flew F4 Phantoms, A-7D Corsairs and the A-10 Thunderbolt II better known as the Warthog. My family and I have relocated multiple times, including six overseas moves. We know the mixed feelings that a relocation can cause. During my years in the military, I learned the importance of a strong work ethic and adherence to strict ethical standards—the same standards that I practice as a member of the National Association of REALTORS®.

Whether representing a buyer or a seller, I know that my first duty is to attend to the needs of the client. Detailed knowledge of the market, relocation concerns, and the latest and most effective marketing tools require a continuing investment in professional education. I have earned Prudential's Fine Homes Specialist designation, e-certification, and both homebuyer and seller relocation certifications. I am a graduate of the REALTOR® Institute (GRI) and a member of the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS designation). I am proud to have served as past Director of the Austin Region, Texas Lone Star Chapter CRS. I also maintain membership in the national, state and local associations of REALTORS®.  Although she is now retired to spend more time with other pursuits, my wife Joanne has been a Realtor since 1983 and is a ready resource for solving the most difficult home ownership and marketing issues. Between us, we offer 60 years cumulative experience in the real estate industry.  Please call, write or email us today. We are standing by to make the home buying/selling experience smooth, pleasant and profitable.

Thr Mission Statement

My goal as a REALTOR® is to give my clients the tools and information they need to make correct decisions about buying or selling real estate. It is my responsibility to maintain the necessary knowledge base through continuing education, research, and daily market analysis. I will keep up with technical capabilities and marketing trends to be able to offer my clients the latest and most effective sales tools.

This website is very much a work in progress.  Our goal is to offer useful information with as little intrusion into your personal information as possible. Call or email us directly (anonymously if necessary) and we will get you the information you seek.
