One thing that has always stuck with me in my professional life is customer service. I believe strongly in treating people as you would want to be treated. This philosophy has been a part of my business life since day one. Keeping my clients informed, updated and understanding the real-estate process is my number one goal. Customer service is vitally important in all aspects of dealing with any real estate transaction.
A little about me. I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois growing up in the southern suburbs and eventually moving downtown to Wrigleyville, home of the Cubs. Next stop was Miami Florida where I met my beautiful wife of over 20 plus years and we had our two amazing boys Tyler and Jake. Soon after we moved to raise the kids in Castle Pines Colorado and enjoyed our share of the cold weather. After numerous vacations to Hawaii we decided to make Oahu our home now many years back and that was the best decision we ever made.
I have been a successful entrepreneur owning and operating numerous business over my professional career. No business has been more rewarding than being a Broker in charge. I have had the ability of packaging all my business skills into helping my clients. I am a proud member and the lead Broker of the Hawaii Life MST (Military Specialized Team), I am MRP certified, a member of the HL Zillow Team and have helped clients buy and sell properties all over the island.
After a certain amount of time of being a full time agent you have the ability to expand your knowledge base by becoming a Broker. This includes a rigorous amount of classroom education and a very comprehensive two part test. I am very pleased to be a part of an elite group of Brokers in Hawaii. The vast majority of agents in Hawaii do not strive for the extra level of education and the higher designation. Once you become a broker if an opportunity arrises you can become a Broker In Charge. This is the second highest responsibility a Hawaii Broker can have just short of being the owner or principal broker of a real estate business. I am very proud and pleased to have achieved the status and qualifications to become the Hawaii Life Broker In charge for Oahu, This is something that I do not take lightly and hopefully shows my dedication to the business.
I am also pleased to announce that I have been given a corporate roll with Hawaii Life as the Director Of Agent Services. This is a vital role for our agents as my department oversees the Transaction Management Team, Listings Team and the closing of the escrow files which enables the agents to get paid. This allows me to give the final audit of the file and further expands my knowledge base by seeing all the closing files for the entire state. In short, I am constantly perfecting the craft and contract part of real estate so that I make sure I am always improving. You have to do more and be better always.
It sounds cliche but all agents are really not all the same. I look forward to helping you either buy, sell or just becoming better informed with the process. In Real-estate you need representation from someone who can negotiate, that has been around the block, bought and sold numerous properties at all price points and fully understands the process. I hope I can be that agent for you and your family. Feel free to call, text or email anytime.
