Personal Background

I was born in the small town of Blair Nebraska, it's about 20 miles North of Omaha.  One of Four children and the last one born but first Nebraska born was a challenge, I was 12 years younger than my next sibling and we lived in a 2 bedroom one bath home....  looking back I guess it's what kept me humble. The small town atmosphere was also a good grounding with the everyone knows everyone we watched out of others and their kids etc.   Played sports all thru grade and high school the moved away, out of state for more school and what I thought would be my career in engineering.   I worked  for a nice firm in Iowa and did surveying and bridge inspection for about 8 years, then having kids decided the travel and crawling on bridges wasn't for me anymore and started video stores until that fad started to fade out,  well the rest is history and here I am.  I coached baseball and softball teams for my kids and the tagged along with me all the years I played.  Looking back at that,  I think helps me in my current manager position.  As the same issues with players and young adults continue with agents and their carreers in real estate.

I enjoy this industry, this company and the people who make Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambasasador the top office in  North America network and hope to continue to improve in what I do.

Professional Background

I've been a Realtor since 1990 and started at a very small firm back when interest rates were 15 and 18%. Real estate back then was a simple process but the market was very soft at the start.  From my background of owning my own business, I had skills in marketing and what I felt as good people skills, and a fresh young family to support. I dove into this business not knowing the interest rates where high and found a market that needed and wanted the American dream of home ownership.  I came to Prudential Ambassador in 1992 and sold hundreds of homes from new construction to existing,  repo's to condos.  I enjoyed helping people and agents which brought me into management in 1999 to present.  Now the new transition to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate starts yet a new beginning and a new goal starting in 2013.  Our company closed over one Billion in volume and over 5000 closed transactions.   Looking ahead to 2015 will bring new and different challanges with tougher loan requirements, higher interest rates and things I won't go into here.   What ever awaits we are here and I'm still here now 20+ year later.

Professional Interests

In 1999 I accepted the offer of manager,  we had 85 agents and a average sized office.  Today we have over 400 agents and a 30,000 sq ft. building, 2 managers and a staff of 15.  In 2015 we'll be moving to our new 75,000 sq.ft building, Real  Estate has changed greatly over the years but Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador continues to be the front runner in agent support and trends that continually change this market.
