I have worked with the following media outlets as a subject matter expert (General Real Estate, Real Estate Statistics, Real Estate Investing & Foreclosures):
Wall Street Journal
Fort Myers News Press
Naples Daily News
Fort Myers Weekly
Gulf Coast Business Journal.
I also was a Trainer/Speaker for the Florida Housing Coalition.
I grew up in Stuart, Florida. I am a veteran of the USMC and served in Desert Shield and Desert Storm as an Infantryman with First Battalion Third Marines.
I had many mentors throughout my real estate career. Feel free to reach out if you think I can help you along your own journey.
I’ve worked in real estate investing since 2001 and have been involved in most all aspects of residential real estate investing, from property management, leasing, and investing to whole selling, flipping, property preservation, and vacation rentals.
My expertise is in property management. I currently manage several hundred properties in Lee County (specifically Cape Coral, Fort Myers, North Fort Myers Lehigh Acres, and Bonita Springs). I am one of the few investors who also enjoys property management. As a property manager and landlord of my investments, I understand the importance of preserving property.
Lee County has been my home my entire life. I received an associate’s degree from Edison College and a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business from Florida Gulf Coast University. I am a licensed real estate agent and a licensed community association manager (CAM). I also served on a two-year mission for my church in Mexico and am fully fluent in Spanish.
