About Me

I'm very aware of the challenges sellers and buyers face during what can be a taxing selling and buying process; there are so many intricacies involved. The Realtor who can navigate you through the process and explain it every step of the way makes all the difference.


Having worked in adult education the better part of two decades, I understand the importance of listening first, and then developing a strategy based upon individual needs, wants, and concerns. 


As a native Charlottean who has lived here most of my life, I possess a strong knowledge of the Charlotte and surrounding neighborhood markets.  From building greenhouses in Huntersville and working at a local lumber yard in Davidson for years in my youth to becoming a Charlotte real estate professional, I bring more than just transaction know-how to the table—I bring the experience of someone who has always called North Carolina home.


When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my wife, Stephanie, and our daughter, Greta, woodworking, running, or hiking.

As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
