I am going to help you buy or sell your home for the best price, in the shortest amount of time, and with the least inconvenience for you.

I’m not a salesman; I’m a guide. Buying or selling a home is a huge decision, and as such, you need someone to guide you through the process with a patient demeanor and a listening ear so you can make an informed choice. I will do everything possible to provide you with all you need to make the right choice.


I was born 60 years ago in a small Alabama town known today for its NASCAR races. After high school in Mississippi and college in Minnesota, I spent two years in Japan teaching conversational English and English Bible classes with an inter-denominational missionary organization. Later I served 23 years as an officer in the Air Force, retiring in 2008. My interest in Sarasota began in 1984 when I first arrived here and immediately knew this was the place for me. Though I was gone for many years, I continued to come back for short visits. Having traveled to numerous cities in the U.S. and on four continents, Sarasota is still one of my favorites. So after selling real estate in northwest Florida, my wife, Diana, and our Yorkie, Nalla, relocated back to Sarasota. I’m here now to help you with all your real estate needs.
