With almost 20 years of real estate experience, I am your go-to realtor in North Georgia and Western North Carolina. I have consistently been a part of the Circle of Excellence for the Northeast Georgia Board of Realtors, with over $1MM in sales for the past 15 years. Being a native of North Georgia and Western North Carolina for generations affords me the unique experience of knowing the area unlike any other realtor. My parents were always involved in real estate, so it was a very natural fit when I decided to begin my real estate career in 2000. Since such time, I have owned an independent real estate firm, managed other realtors and grown my business to the successful operation it is today. Joining Century 21, Black Bear Realty, 10 years ago, has afforded me the ability to focus on growing my market share of listings, expand my referral base and provide unparalleled service to my clients.

I Love Golf. In my spare time, you can find me on the golf course with friends enjoying a round. I also enjoy spending time with my wife, 4 children and 8 grandchildren. I am so blessed to enjoy the life God has given me and the family and friends to share it with.
