I grew up in Palm Desert, California. I was active in my fathers real estate brokerage that he owned and operated for 60 years. I was also involved with 2 restaurants that my father owned and operated on "Restaurant Row" in Rancho Mirage, California. My father and I built several houses in La Quinta, California. When I wasn't working with my dad I helped build 5 restaurants in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and La Quinta California. We also built over 50 home all over the Coachella Valley. In 1983 I came to Scottsdale, Arizona to look at a site on the McCormick Ranch where my Father and Brother were going to build a restaurant called, Ricks Café Americana. I had only planned to stay two months and stayed for 30 years! In 1990 I became licensed in real estate and began my career with Century 21 from 1990 to 2000. In 2000 I moved to RE/MAX Fine Properties until 2006. In 2006 I started my own company called Arizona Real Estate Solutions. . During the recent real estate down turn I became licensed as a General Contractor in Arizona. My company built several custom homes, completed many home remodels and we were involved with the construction of Lifetime Fitness and DSW Shoes in Scottsdale. I have now joined Realty One Group in North Scottsdale. I believe that technology is driving the real estate industry and I was impressed with Realty One Group's emphasis on marketing and technology. My broker Bill Powers and the staff made me feel very welcome. Enough about me! I have been married to my wife Alyson for 20 years. We have 2 great kids, Kaylee 18 and Josh 15. We like to hike, bike, fish, walk, sail, camp.....anything that gets up outside!
