After family and friends, real estate has always been my passion. With the help of my grandfather, I purchased my first rental home at just 16 years old. I have continued to buy, sell, and manage properties ever since. Upon graduating from business school at Purdue University in 2003, a career in real estate became my goal. My professional career began as a purchasing manager at a lumber yard then transitioned into a sales and project management position for a custom home builder before becoming a licensed broker.
