Grew up in Cleveland. Spent 4 years in the Marine Corps Infantry (honorable discharge). Attended Coastal Carolina University in Myrtle Beach. Apprenticed in Cleveland-based family business—historical restoration, custom home building, and urban development. Moved to Tucson as a general contractor, specializing in custom-built green homes from sustainable resources. Invested in real estate—buying distressed, renovating/restoring, staging, and selling for profit—throughout building career. Moved to St. Augustine and transitioned career to full-time to real estate, turning real estate hobby and passion into practice, and growing roots in St. Augustine Life.
My passions: Anything water-related…fishing, surfing, boating, and introducing the ocean to my baby boy.
Having always been drawn to the water—whether fishing, wake-boarding, or surfing—I discovered St. Augustine on a college surfing trip and knew immediately I would someday make it my home. I even brought my prospective bride (now wife) here to explore the idea. After selling the lake home we renovated together in South Carolina, we made the move and have found life here everything we anticipated. We love the small town feel, the history, the music and arts, and of course, the water! (Catching dinner from our dock is pretty nice, too!)
My national contracting business had me traveling quite a bit so with the addition to our family (a joyous little guy we named Carson Dale), I decided to leave the road to pursue a long-standing dream—a career in real estate that capitalizes on my skills in home building and restoration.
I’ll get a lot of satisfaction out of helping you find a house you can make a home, helping you see beyond the things that don’t matter to concentrate on what does. There’s nothing I enjoy more than sharing a “secret spot,” whether a hidden gem of a house or a great fishing place.
In selling a home, I’ll help you focus on what prospective buyers are looking for so you put your best foot forward. So whether I’m helping you sell or purchase a home, negotiating the best value or maximizing your return on investment is my top priority. I bring honesty, integrity, and a strong work ethic to my clients.
Having built and renovated homes in various cities around the country, I feel I bring scope and perspective to the unique St. Augustine real estate market. I look forward to making your buying or selling experience a satisfying one, and maybe sharing a "secret spot" or two along the way.
