Welcome to my Website

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.  Click here to view my Marketing Plan

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

Personal Background

I was born and raised in Janesville and graduated from Craig High School.  My parents were both employed by the Janesville School District and I, briefly, worked with the district as a custodian before I entered the Air Force. 

My first six years in the Air Force were spent in law enforcement.  I was a Security Police patrolman and narcotic detector dog handler.  I had been stationed at Cannon AFB New Mexico, Osan AB South Korea, and Edwards AFB California. About that time I felt that it was time for a change so I cross-trained into a new career field.  I became a Computer/Display Maintenance Technician on the E-3 Sentry aircraft based out of Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City.  I spent 14 years in that position and saw the world from there.  I flew missions in Operations, Just Cause (Panama), Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Northern Watch, Southern Watch, and finally Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).  I retired with 4,997 flight hours on 574 flights.


Professional Background

I retired from the Air Force after 20 years of service.  I spent most of my Air Force years flying, as a computer technician, on board the E-3 AWACS aircraft based out of Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City.  

After retirement I obtained my real estate sales license and sold real estate in the Oklahoma City metro area.  I moved back to my hometown of Janesville in the Summer of 2010 and started school at Blackhawk Technical College, taking advantage of the GI Bill.  I graduated with a degree in Automated Systems Technology and a certificate in Industrial Maintenance.  

It was during that same time that I started out in pursuit of my Wisconsin real estate license.  and then obtained my Broker's license in May 2014.

I am very happy to have resumed my real estate career in my hometown of Janesville.
