There are two things in life that move me to excel in life -- real estate and exercise. In my free time, if it has to do with exercising, the gym or lifting weights, I am a part of it. This love started in high school wrestling for Marshalltown and has led me to professional MMA fighting. I debuted in 2014 . How are exercise and real estate alike? Your success is determined by the time you invest in it. You will get what you put into either MMA and selling real estate. You must always be improving and learning new ways to be more efficient and better for your clients or self. REsults are all on your shoulder. For these reasons I chose real estate as my full-time career. I have always wanted to invest in myself and real estate seemed to be a way to do that. I love being a landlord and managing property. My first investment property was purchased when I was 23. I love helping people buy and sell homes. Whether it be a first time buyer, seasoned home owner or someone new to our market, I enjoy all the steps involved in making that transaction as smooth as possible. I am a full time sales associate supported by an entire team of real estate and marketing professionals to support you in your real estate transactions. My company has five local offices and 200 plus sales associates. We are affiliated with the most recognized real estate brand in the world with the benefit of local ownership and local decision making.
