What have been the most significant changes in your industry in the last five years? The local real estate industry has become a highly imbalanced seller’s market where the total number of buyers far outweighs the number of sellers. This has created an environment where appreciating prices and multiple-offer situations are the norm.

Where do you see yourself in five years? Professionally, leading one of the top teams in the state helping local sellers and buyers navigate the market and being involved in our local industry associations. Personally, traveling the world with my amazing family, even if it’s just to see them play sports every weekend.

What was your first job? Behind the counter at Hollywood Video.

What advice would you give your 22-year-old self? To balance your focus not just on sales but also on industry involvement and charitable activities. They provide a fulfilling and rewarding sense of purpose beyond transactions.

What moment changed your life more than any other? It occurred during a pair of open houses. My dad, also a real estate agent, made a connection with an unrepresented buyer at his open house and encouraged her to visit mine nearby. She pulled up briefly but didn’t come in. Luckily, my dad maintained the relationship, and this buyer ended up working with us. I was a fresh face in the business, covering for my dad whenever I could. This buyer didn’t just buy a house; she eventually became my wife. Today, we have two amazing daughters, Lily, 11, and Lucy, 6. They are the reason behind everything I do.
