What is your favorite thing about being a real estate agent?
I get to be an advisor and guide to people who are making the biggest financial decision of their lives.

What characteristic(s) makes you a great agent?
What is your favorite thing to do in Richmond?
Richmond is just an amazing place to live. There is a great quality of life and so much to do, great food, good music, and museums. I really enjoy the visiting the Virginia Historical Society.
What are you typically doing when you aren’t working?
Watching horse racing, baseball, or hanging out with my wife and daughter.
How long have you been a Realtor?
What is the first thing that catches your eye when you walk into a home?
Whether or not it’s cluttered. Is it neat and prepared for showing?
What is something your clients can expect when they work with you?
Everyone makes mistakes, but I pride myself on not missing the details.
What did you do before you became a Realtor?
Real estate was my first real job after college.
How has the pandemic changed the way you work with clients?
We have had to do things virtually. Remote showings have become more common. Managing people’s anxieties is already a part of real estate, but the virus has added a whole other level of things to worry about.
