What advice would you offer someone just
starting out in your profession?
1) Listen. Listening is paramount to success. It helps
to gain trust and confidence and allows you to better
analyze a client's situation and offer the best solutions.
2) Continue to learn. Identifying and interpreting market
forces enhances credibility and builds trust. With a degree
from Georgetown in economics and an MBA in real estate
from The American University, it's natural for me to place
importance on analytics, attain credible data and stay ahead
of market trends to ensure my clients get the best possible
information and options. 3) Live by the Golden Rule. Show
me an ethical person who treats his clients and peers with
compassion and sincerity and I'll show you someone
successful in their career. 4) Pay it forward. Give back by
pouring yourself into the people and causes that you truly
care about. When personal connections are sincere and not
conducted to prospect for business, true character shows,
making a great impression—not just a good one.
How would your clients describe you?
I don’t request testimonials from my clients and never
promote myself to the masses in order to win awards.
Aside from being #1 Dad, World's Greatest Husband and
Best Friend... nothing else really matters. But the feedback
that we receive makes me proud: high ethical standards,
efficiency for the process, advanced skills as a negotiator,
effectiveness as a closer, unending patience and overall
satisfaction for their entire experience.
What makes you different than other real estate
I am extremely hands-on. You wonder about creating a
larger machine with multiple assistants and team members.
But then my product would be less of me—and that's not
what my clients want. I like being the “Little Big-Realtor.”
