I am incredibly happily married to my best friend, with three amazing young sons. I firmly believe that in order to know who you are, you must know what you believe in and vice versa. The principles by which I and my family live are Faith, Family, Honor and Duty. These are at the core of not only who I am, but how I handle any situation, be it personal or business. I am also a huge proponent of the Code of the West. My mother and father were both active duty military when I was a child. My father served in the Marine Corps, and my Mother served in the Air Force after my father was honorably discharged from the USMC. I have lived all over the United States and even moved to Japan for over three years as a child when my mother was stationed at Misawa Air Force Base. When my mother was honorably discharged from the USAF, my family and I moved to Laramie. We continued the semi-nomadic lifestyle until more than 10 years ago when both my parents and I took an opportunity to leave the east coast and return once again to Wyoming. I have never lived anywhere else that has felt more like home. I’ve seen and experienced both the big business side of real estate as well as the smaller, individual client focused side. Call me a sucker or a romantic, but I didn’t get into real estate to make millions, I chose to become an agent because I love the idea of helping to make someone’s dreams become a reality. The role and duties of an agent are truly what attracted me to the industry in the first place. Being an advisor in all aspects of the transaction whether it be material detials of the home itself, pitfalls and safeguards in the contract, the process of negotiating, I absolutely love every aspect of real estate. Furthermore; As a society we have lived in a culture of individualism, without individual responsibility for a long time now. I believe we must change that aspect of our culture. It has been my experience that this flaw has crept into every facet of our culture, and I have witnessed it in real estate. Therefore, it is my pledge to both my clients as well as fellow Realtors to strictly adhere to the Code of the West. Perhaps it is a combination of nature and nurture, but these principles have been a part of who I am from my earliest memories.
