Who I am: I am a father, a husband, an 19 year veteran educator, and a proud REALTOR® of 16 years. I am an Educator serving and helping Educators.
What I do: I am in the business of building people, building families, and building communities all throughout the Atlanta metro area and North Georgia. Over my many years in public education in several different communities, I have had my life touched by countless people. Through my years in real estate, I have sold homes for and to many individuals and families. The common thread that runs through many of them is their hand in the field of education........teachers; administrators; custodians; bus drivers; paraprofessionals; library/media specialists; retirees of the field. It has become an unquestioning element of my life that those who know me through the field of education reach out to me for my advice when thinking about buying or selling a home. These are the people I love; these are the people I serve! Recently, I have redirected the mission of my business to be one of service to the education profession. Hence 'The Educators' Broker'........but not only the classroom teachers; all the great men and women who work in our schools and touch our children's lives daily, as well as their parents, children, and families. I have committed myself to the mission of helping the fine people of the education profession to experience the benefits of homeownership for themselves and their families, and to improve their overall quality of life. It is my goal to offer a great value to education employees, with full-service real estate brokerage that is specially tailored to their needs. Please inquire about my School Employee Benefits! I have assisted many non-education employees with the purchase and sale of their homes, as well, and I am still more than pleased to prepare a custom plan for anybody who is looking to buy or sell.
Why I do it: Homeownership is an amazing gift!! We are so blessed to live in a nation where we have the opportunity to purchase and own a place for our families to have a heritage. As a general rule, educators and other professionals and employees in the education field do not make exorbitant salaries. This is a fact of which I am personally well-aware! Having purchased more than one house on a very limited budget for myself over the years, I understand the importance of negotiating hard and finding ways to allow my clients to keep as much money in their pocket as possible. I know that a minor difference in out-of-pocket costs or the bottom line may render their dreams impossible. My buyers' and sellers' best interests are always at the forefront of everything I do on their behalf. My goal is to guide educators towards the right resources as well as types and sources of financing to make their dream a reality. In addition to all of these details, I very clearly understand the unique demands of educators' daily job, work calendar, and pay schedule. In short, I am an educator at heart who works hard for educators! Through my experience, I know that educators and education employees operate on a unique timeline based on their school year. Allow me to work with you to create a custom home sale or purchase plan that is tailored to your calendar, as well as your individual daily and weekly schedules.
What you can do: Teachers and school employees, let me help you take your next step! Whether it is your first home or your dream home; a vacation property, second home, or an investment; bigger, smaller.....mountain, lakeside........I'm your guy! I love working with buyers and sellers. As a former newcomer, myself, I also love to help educators who are relocating to learn what there is to love about the Atlanta area! If you are an educator who is nearing retirement and thinking of moving to a different state or region, allow me to assist by putting you in touch with referral partners in that locale. Through them, I can help to coordinate a plan for you, as well!
Over my years in real estate, I have heard countless would-be buyers and sellers say 'If it is meant to be, it will be.' Well, I have a twist on that mantra that I like to keep at the top of my mind always: 'If it is meant to be, make it happen!' I don't believe that the best things in life happen by sitting idly and waiting.....I believe that we have to go, move, and shake! If you feel like your next home step is 'meant to be', don't wait......let's make it happen! Click the 'Contact' tab at the top of my page, and let me know the best way to reach you. I would also love to know if you are an education employee, and where you work! Your information will always remain confidential. I look forward to serving my brothers and sisters in education!
