    Experience has its rewards.

    June 6, "77
    My career began
    When I joined my mom and dad

    At our small family firm
    On State and 23rd
    Selling folks their homes or land

    The lessons I learned
    Over those many years
    Still resonate in my brain

    Mom's "Kill them with kindness"
    Dad's "Always be honest"
    Have become my life's refrain

    My mom died young
    Dad retired and is now gone
    An honor to have had them near

    After almost 40 years
    Sometimes I'll still shed tears
    Of their gift of my career

    It's not about the money
    It's about the people
    Whose life stories make it grand

    And the satisfaction of giving
    While earning a living
    With the best job in the land

    Hobbies: Real Estate investing, reading-especially American military history, running, spinning, bike riding, walking around Sunriver.

    Education: B.S. Business Finance OSU, CRS-Certified Residential Specialist, ABR- Accredited Buyer Representative, GRI- Graduate Realtor Institute, SRES- Senior Real Estate Specialist, GRI & Code of Ethics Instructor.Past President Oregon Association of Realtors.
