I have been a Texas native since 1980. I am a graduate from Texas State in San Marcos with a BBA in Marketing. I moved to Lubbock in the winter of 2007 with my wife and one year old daughter to pursue a homebuilding career, only to discover we were heading into one of the nation’s deepest recessions. It was my goal to help my homebuilder father-in-law sell his homes during these tough times, and from this my career in selling real estate was born. Now having lived in Lubbock for 11 years, we are blessed with a prosperous real estate business, two beautiful kids, three dogs, a hedgehog, and a fish.
Since my start in Real Estate back in June 2008, I have sold hundreds of homes in and around Lubbock County. I have been consistently ranked in the top five REALTORS® in Lubbock for overall sales dollar volume.
I currently serve as Vice President of the Board in my neighborhood HOA, Vice President of Associates at the West Texas Home Builder’s Association (WTHBA), Board Member at WTHBA, 2018 WTHBA Parade Chairman, 2017 WTHBA Associate Member of the Year, and a Board Member on the City of Lubbock’s Board of Building Appeals.
I am a native West Texan, growing up in Brownfield. I graduated in 2003 with honors from Brownfield High School, and then attended Texas Tech University. There I majored in Food Science with a minor in Chemistry. During this time, I met my wife Amber, and we were married at First Presbyterian Church in 2007. We have celebrated over 13 years of marriage and are blessed with 2 beautiful little girls, Abigail and Loralei.
After graduation from Texas Tech with my Bachelor of Science, I pursued a career in the food industry. My first job was with Praters’ Foods in their quality control department. I then transitioned to Ecolab, where I spent the next 8 years selling supplies to restaurants, hotels, and other institutions across West Texas, Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming. I received numerous high sales achievement awards while there and was promoted to District Sales Manager for West Texas in 2014.
Family is my top priority, and with that in mind I made the decision to leave my position at Ecolab in 2015, to spend more time with my wife and caring for our children. Giving back to our great community is also especially important to me. Currently, I am member of Westminster Presbyterian Church where I have been called to serve in the Children’s Ministry. There I volunteer my time with summer camps, teaching Sunday school, community outreach programs, and vacation bible school. In 2020 I was ordained as an Elder, and I am currently serving on Session as the Elder for Childrens Ministries. I am also currently serving as the Vice-President for my neighborhood Homeowners Association.
I love interacting with people and helping them solve complex problems. This in addition to my sales experience and personal relation skills are perfectly suited to a career in Real Estate, which also provides me the flexibility I need. In my 4 plus years in real estate I have been successful in helping clients with residential, commercial, and farm/ranch transactions. I am looking forward to many more years of helping the people of West Texas find their dream homes.
