I have been happily married to my wife, Jamie, for over 20 years and have 3 incredible kids – Kayden, Kendall, and Kyla.  We met in college while I was attending Western Michigan University studying Secondary Education (Drafting & Design) and she was studying Nursing at Grand Valley State University.  After graduating, I began work as a design engineer.  Through various companies, large and small, I had the opportunity to work in fuel systems design and agricultural design.  During my time in a traditional office setting, my wife and I began our real estate journey.  From finishing off our lower level in our first home together, to flipping several homes, and purchasing rental properties, real estate has been a part of much of our marriage together.  Throughout these experiences, I have had the opportunity to learn a lot about what makes a quality home from the foundation up.

Shortly after our daughter was born in 2015, we both decided on new adventures.  Jamie went full time into real estate and I left a corporate office setting to begin designing from home.  That decision led me to an opportunity to work with a local high end architect completing construction drawings initially, along with some design opportunities.  The knowledge gained working in this setting provides me with a unique prospective in the real estate world.  As Jamie’s schedule continued to grow with clients, I decided to get my real estate license as well.

A successful real estate transaction starts with good partnership!  I believe in partnering with buyers and sellers.  I bring 15+ years of experience in sales and marketing to the table, along with construction and design experience in the home industry.  Whether you are looking to buy or sell, my prior experiences, books I have read, and associations I have kept, taught me the best negotiation techniques and problem-solving skills to get you the best value possible for your specific needs and goals. In a tight market with low inventory and where multiple offers are common, you want a REALTOR® that will go the extra mile to get a deal done! I look forward to serving my clients and helping them find what is important to them.
