About Me

I wanted to help people.

I started my real estate career in January of 1982. I had worked in construction of sixty five commercial buildings, and also in Christian education.

I met qualifications for my broker license January of 1985. A few days later someone called me about 8 acres in the country. I was pretty inexperienced. She had tried to sell this land for many years, but could not. There was no water on it. Then she said the words I wanted to hear, “I need your help!”

Market value at that time for land like that was $400. / acre. Then she said, “I’ll take $5,000. / acre.” I listed the property!!!   As I drove back to town I wondered, “What have I done?”  After the long drive my pickup was almost empty. I pulled into a station. As I was pumping gas, suddenly an El Camino swung into the middle of the parking lot and parked away from the pumps! The door opened and a big man wearing a straw hat stepped out and walked directly up to me. He said, “My boss wants to buy 5 to 10 acres of land in the country. Do you know anyone who has some for sale?”

After I came to, I showed them the property. I wrote the contract and we closed in a couple of weeks.

I  wanted to help people.

I found that  real help comes from above.
