Business Description:
I’ve been helping homeowners in  Southwest Ohio including Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties for over forty years. I use my experience and my understanding of the market to serve my clients and honor my Lord while I assist them with their real estate needs. I get very good results and happy clients while protecting my buyers and sellers in their own search for real estate success. 

What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
I’ve been selling real estate since my early 20’s.  I enjoy helping clients and associates, and it’s something I’m pretty good at. I was in real estate management for much of my career; and I enjoyed training and helping others succeed in the business. I’m also very active in the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors. I have served on many different leadership committees and I still serve in that capacity today.

How did you come to faith in Christ?
Before we were married, my wife, Gail was a wonderful witness of Christ to me. As a result, during a summer business trip to Colorado Springs and as a result of her example, I sat under the mentor ship of a Godly man who took me under his wing and gently and systematically shared scripture with me and introduced me to Jesus. I made Christ my Lord and I’ve been growing ever since. I can honestly say that Christ is at the center of everything I’m about.

How does your faith impact the way you do business?
I consciously and purposely seek God’s counsel in whatever I do. I also assist other business people and professionals in our mutual desire to honor God in how we conduct our business. I am a Gideon (have been since I was 26 years old), a facilitator at MC2 (Marketplace Christians Making Connections) and BCC (Business Cross Connections) and I’m an active member of my local church.  I’ve been very active in church ever since I accepted Christ as my savior. I’ve led small groups in my home and attended others in various locations and homes. I’m currently involved with a small group of brothers early Wednesday mornings at Chick-fil-A shortly after they open. I’m also involved with two other men’s groups during the week. I’ve had the privilege of serving on the board of trustees with City Gospel Mission for 32 years until a few years ago.   I enjoy being involved with At Work On Purpose marketplace ministry and its 2nd Monday Collaboratory. I guess I just enjoy being around God and His people. The one person I most enjoy being around is my wife, Gail. We both put God 1st and everything else behind each other. We also enjoy our son, Jon and his wife, Lizzy and our granddaughter, Claire Joy. They live in North Carolina. We’re blessed!
