I grew up in the Joplin area and know the area well. After high school I wanted to “see the world” so I joined the United States Navy, I am a veteran of Operation Desert Storm and proudly served onboard the USS MISSOURI (BB-63). After completing my enlistment I returned back to Southwest Missouri and attended Missouri Southern to get my degree in Computer Information Systems. I met my wife Anita who is also a life long resident of Southwest Missouri, we have three great kids. I love to travel and see new places. I have been all over the world and always return to my SWMO roots. I have worked around the Joplin area for most of my life and have been interested in Real Estate in all forms for as long as I can remember, I decided it is time to stop talking and start doing. I specialize buying and selling both residential and commercial real estate and finding the right home for the right family. If you are selling your house, I can take away the stress by handling everything from start to finish. I will use the latest Internet marketing tools to show your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers.
