Your Las Vegas Real Estate Agent, Realtor®

Whether you are buying or selling Las Vegas area real estate, the education and actual experience of the Las Vegas Realtor® you select can make all the difference in making your Las Vegas real estate needs a rewarding experience.... or a nightmare.

When looking around at all of the homes on the internet for sale, few people take the time to actually learn a little about the real estate agent that is going to be introducing them to a huge commitment and that's a big mistake. The fact that you are here reading this tells me that you are searching for more then just pretty homes on the internet or slick marketing campaigns with salesy predictions and that's a big step towards a long lasting relationship that will make the path for your real estate goals a much easier one to take. 

There is no shortage of bad information on the internet. There is certainly no shortage of "real estate experts" in the media that don't actually practice real estate and really don't know too much about the intricacies of what's really going on in the trenches.

Formal Education

After serving in the Military, I went on to attend the University of Georgia where I majored in International Business. However, the West Coast was calling me and I had the opportunity to attend the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on a program where I was only supposed to be in Las Vegas for one year. When seeing the opportunity that Las Vegas had to offer in the early 1990's, I ended up staying at UNLV. Las Vegas has more then doubled in size since those days and I've personally witnessed the building of the many great communities that make Las Vegas a great place to live.

Las Vegas Real Estate Experience

In 1997 I met and started doing some marketing work for a top Las Vegas Realtor® that helped her become one of the top real estate agents in Las Vegas. Loving the real estate business and all of the beautiful Las Vegas homes I got to see, I eventually jumped in and formally obtained my Nevada Real Estate license in 2001.

After receiving my Nevada Real Estate License, I immediately pursued the more complicated specialty of true Real Estate investing with extensive education in some of the best Real Estate Investment classes taught. I also have a passion for Development and have taken classes in Land Development taught by some of the best in the business where the concepts of "community" development have been highly instrumental in selecting homes in communities that are well planned for future appreciation... and staying away from "subdivisions" that have little potential to be anything unique years down the road.

My formal education in Finance and the extensive education in real estate investments were instrumental in advising clients to sell their Las Vegas real estate investments in 2005 that saved them hundreds of thousand of dollars before the real estate bubble eventually popped. Some very simple formulas showed that owning Las Vegas real estate during the peak made absolutely no financial sense and that it was time to sell.

Hundreds of hours of real estate education and over $100 Million in real estate sales eventually led me to an instrumental role in helping some of my real estate investors in purchasing a failing development that was going to foreclosure. This led to the position of Director of Sales where I was responsible for the marketing and sales along with many other responsibilities. The experience of learning what it takes to build a community, the costs involved and getting the home to final delivery to new owners was absolutely priceless.

Real Estate Franchises I've Been Affiliated With

Being married to a real estate trainer has it's benefits with the opportunities of being affiliated with the major real estate franchises and learning their systems. These are the major franchises that I've worked with over the years:

  • CENTURY 21 - An excellent company to start a real estate career with due to their training programs for new real estate agents.
  • Coldwell Banker - A great franchise with a long history. Some nice company provided resources for real estate agents that don't have their own.
  • RE/MAX - A fantastic franchise great for independent real estate agents that know how to run a business on their own.
  • Sotheby's - A Luxury Real Estate Franchise that focuses on higher end properties.
  • Prudential Real Estate - A combination of all the above that is excellent for seasoned real estate agents.

At one time I did own a boutique Real Estate Brokerage but with the challenges the real estate market saw and the time it takes just to run a business, it made more financial sense to affiliate with a larger brokerage. This allowed me to focus more on meeting the needs of our clients and letting the company I affiliated with to handle all of the day to day challenges of running a business.... and letting me practice real estate.

Certified Residential Specialist

Along the way I earned the "CRS" designation which has been earned by less then 4% of all Real Estate Agents in the entire United States.

I've also earned the following Awards and Designations:

  • Accredited Buyer Representatives (ABR)
  • Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)
  • Masters Diamond Award Recipient
  • Masters Ruby Award Recipient
  • Masters Emerald Award Recipient
