Why did you first join the Alliance Board?

I want to continue the collaborative approach to working with local officials that our organization is known for.​

What do you see as the most important legislative issue for Realtors® right now?

Fair and balanced tax reform both locally and nationally. Locally, I don't see any of the leading state plans accomplishing that, and nationally, I am worried about cutting taxes when our national debt is out of control. 

          You can earn a good income from selling real estate,

                    but you can build wealth by owning real estate.  

How do you like to spend your time when you're not working?

I love to read, and at this time each year, I enjoy playing the new Call of Duty game.​

What is one piece of advice you would give to a new Realtor®?

​Find a mentor who is successful in a similar area of Real Estate and learn from them. Also, you can earn a good income from selling real estate, but you can build wealth by owning real estate.​

What book(s) is on your nightstand?

A President and a Pope, about Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul working together to defeat communism. A lot of new information in it.​
