Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” So, let me briefly tell you what I am not. Simply, I’m not a salesperson. What I am is a people person and a giver. My philosophy is simple: Clients come first. My background is nontraditional. I spent more than a decade working on air anchoring, reporting and hosting at NBC and ABC affiliate TV stations from Cincinnati to Dallas to right here in Phoenix, where I consider home. In journalism, you have to be curious, a great listener, an expert communicator, detail-oriented, conduct thorough research, be accurate, have integrity and empathy in storytelling, and thrive on deadline. All of these qualities will help make the home buying and selling process refreshing for you. At NBC, I hosted a series called Lifestyles of the Rich & Fabulous, featuring multi-million dollar homes and luxury resorts. This gave me insight and helped expand my market knowledge of not only North Phoenix and Scottsdale, but also the Valley overall. Some of you invited me into your home through your television, and now I hope to get invitation from you to either sell or find your dream home! With the horsepower of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty, you are truly getting a first class ticket in Real Estate. Outside of work, I am spending quality time with my wife, Chelsey. We love to travel, explore history, DIY projects and give back to the community.
