My Background and
Elkhart is my hometown
I was born and raised right in Elkhart, Indiana, and have lived here most of my life.
I think that's a big advantage for you, if you're moving in from another part of the country. I'm familiar with every part of Elkhart and the surrounding area - the neighborhoods, the schools, the shopping, restaurants, churches, recreation, social events, and other important parts of life that make you feel at home in a new community. I have filled pages of my website with information on "the Elkhart I call home." Explore my site for an insider's glimpse of Elkhart, then take a look at some of the helpful links to information about the Elkhart area I've provided on my Elkhart Info page.
I've been a full time real estate professional for over 28 years
Buying a house isn't something you leave up to an amateur or part-timer! Real estate isn't a part-time job for me - in fact, I devote 50 to 70 hours a week working to make my clients happy. I started as an agent, moved up to broker, and opened my own office with a partner 25 years ago. Because I work in real estate every day, I know what's going on - where the good deals are, where the best financing rates are, and how to handle the complications of real estate transactions. Recently, my office merged with
RE/MAX Oak Crest, to expand service, to improve regional coverage, and
to strengthen our technological resources.
I've been voted "Best Realtor in Elkhart"
- Three years in a row!
Residents of Elkhart have spoken, and the results are in:
Their choice for Best Realtor in Elkhart, by actual votes - for three years in a row
- is me! Recognition by actual homeowners and home buyers is the professional honor
that means the most to me because it's based on the support of people I work for and work with every day.
I've been named to RealTrends list of "America's Best
Real Estate Agents"
There are hundreds of thousands of Real Estate Agents in the US - and hundreds right here
in the Elkhart/South Bend area. But just a tiny handful earn recognition from RealTrends.
I'm proud to be on that very special and exclusive list of "America's Best" Real Estate Agents.
I handle 10 times as much business as the average agent
There's a reason that I handle the real estate needs of so many people - I get the results they want. I can make things happen. I complete transactions that others would give up on. As one of the most active brokers in Indiana, bankers, loan officers, title companies, and insurance agents WANT my business. That works to YOUR advantage. You don't have to settle for part-time service from a part-time agent. I have seen it all, done it all, over and over again, and turned over keys to dream homes more times in ONE year than the average real estate does in TEN.
I'm a RE/MAX Top Producer
- Hall of Fame, Platinum Club - Consistently ranked in the top twenty in the state
RE/MAX International is the world's leading real estate organization, selling more property world-wide than any other firm. The reason is simple - RE/MAX attracts the industry's top producing professionals. My performance for clients over the past several years has put me at the TOP 1% of all real estate agents nationwide and has earned me the "Hall of Fame" award. That's consistent performance and experience you can count on.
