After graduating from Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg,
Missouri, in 1998, I married my college sweetheart,
Amy, in 1999 and started my family in 2000. My daughter Trinity
followed, then my son Tagen in 2003, and my youngest daughter,
Tayte, in 2008.
After college I went to work for a local computer company, selling network solutions
to companies around mid-Missouri. I also started a home business selling “stuff”
online, becoming one of the first eBay Power Sellers.
In 2001, I started in real estate kind of by accident. I had a little bit of money from
selling so much stuff on eBay that I decided it was time to invest in some real estate.
I started enjoying looking for and trying to buy investment properties, so I decided
to get my license and went to work for a local franchise company. The internet was
really beginning to boom for all industries, and I wanted to make sure I was there for
real estate marketing as well. I soon realized that real estate was my thing, and that
this was where I needed and wanted to be.
I was a quick learner and traveled around the country attending seminars and networking
with some of the top realtors. I was an implementer! I quickly developed a
team in 2002 and hired two buyer’s agents and an office manager. The funny thing
was, I had no buyers and only one listing. That didn’t last long: With my determination,
we quickly grew to the company’s top producer and the top 10 in the state of Missouri
for Coldwell Banker. We earned this title every quarter for 24 consecutive quarters
before leaving to start my own company. In 2007, I purchased a Realty Executives
franchise and have grown my team every year since.
