What first inspired you to get into your line of work? And what motivates you to do the work you do still today?
I have always liked working on my home. I began following real estate markets in Dayton. I started working to own a second home to rent and thought I would enjoy getting more involved. I like working with people and helping them with their real estate needs was the next step. I wasn’t wrong. I earned my real estate license in 2003.
How did you come to faith in Christ?
I grew up in the church. I remember some significant events that made me want to know God more. Not much happened though until high school. There was a group of kids that all hung out together in my neighborhood. I started to like one of the girls. She and another girl in the neighborhood were going to a weekend event with Young Life and invited me to go. I didn’t see her much there but I met Jesus in a new way. I learned I could talk with Him and be with Him. I learned for the first time what sin really was and knew I needed a Savior. That’s when I responded to His love with a relational commitment.
How does your faith impact the way you do business?
We can’t give what we don’t have. Jesus and His abundant life is the only real thing we have to give. Colossians 1:27 says it is Jesus Christ who is the hope of glory in our lives. Christ in us is the mystery of the gospel. I want my words to be words of life to people, life that only Jesus can give. To be in that space I need to just be with Jesus. John 10 says to abide in Him, to rest in Him. So, learning to work out of rest versus working to rest is a big difference. Jesus says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. I want to be so rested in Him I can’t help but overflow His life.
I would say also out of this abundance three values have developed. One is humility is underrated. If we have a God who can die for my sins and yours, I can work to love and serve people. Second is to inspect what I expect and expect great things. We can have all the tools in the world but if our expectations are not very high we will not accomplish much. Learning to set your own expectations that most of the time exceed that of the clients speaks of the excellence our God has for us, His attention to detail in our lives shows all the more His love. The third value is to finish well remembering your why’s. We all have a “Why?” in life. As a Christian, it is the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. We have a “Why” for taking a job and we have a “Why” when we are on the job. I want to serve the people God has put in my path with excellence and finish well.
What ministry/cause do you champion and why?
The Gathering of the Miami Valley’s mission is to connect men to men and men to God. Did you know that when men come to Christ over 90% of the time their family does too? We are all on a journey and at different points in our relationship with God. If I can help someone along in that relationship I have served them. I have found those involved in this ministry have that same heart. Program wise we have a large breakfast event once or twice a year (this past breakfast Clark Kellogg spoke). We have lunch series where 50-70 men gather. We have weekly locker rooms or small groups that meet all over the place at different times and days. I lead one that meets on Tuesdays at Chick Fil A in front of Costco. There are ad hoc events too – a group went to Montana this past summer, Columbus Crew games, basketball and basement games, concerts, comedy nights, worship nights or just getting together. We do life together.
