Welcome to my Website
My sales experience began in 1978 as a zone manager for Sun Electric Corporation, a fortune 500 company. My career with Sun Electric lasted for fifteen years. My duties were sales, service, training and account collections for the top brand of automotive servicing equipment in the world. I developed a sales territory that covered one third of the state of Michigan and consistantly ranked in the top ten percent of the Michigan sales team.
I started my real estate sales career with Vacation Properties Network in 1989. In 1994 our company was purchased by Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors. Over the past twenty years I have had the opportunity to work with many fine people. My sales achievements include membership in the Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society, Coldwell Banker Sterling Society, the Elite Chairman's Circle and Previews Property Marketing Specialist. Referrals and repeat customers make up a large portion of my business.

My family has resided in the Traverse City area for five generations. I feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. I have a wife and two children. My wife LuAnn works for MSU Extension, my son Bryan has a construction company, my daughter Joey is an elementary school teacher. Although I have a teaching degree, I found my niche in sales shortly after graduating from CMU. My connection to the community and my many friends and acquaintences have allowed me to provide superior service to my clients. I have many interests from cars to boats, motorcycles, most any outdoor activity, traveling, and renovating investment properties.
