I Love People And I Love The Carson Valley!
I love people and I love the Carson Valley!  This has been home to me for the last 32 years.  Having raised three beautiful daughters here, I can honestly say, there is no place I would rather call home.  Living in the Carson Valley is much more than just finding the right home, it’s discovering the abundance and diversity of life experiences the area has to offer.  Come; let me introduce you to the endless possibilities at www.carsonvalleyhomebuyer.com .
I have 25+ years of building experience as a successful General Contractor and over 85 million dollars in real estate transactions in the Carson Valley.
I have a true passion for helping others.  With so many people in trouble on their homes, I felt called to do what I could to help them.  I have studied extensively the housing market and mortgage debacle and have received the designations “Certified Distressed Property Expert” (CDPE) as well as “Certified Default Resolution Specialist” (CDRS) from America Home Rescue, Inc. americanhomerescue.org  My construction expertise, real estate training and local market knowledge have uniquely qualified me to help others with their real estate needs.  As a Licensed Real Estate Professional, whether it’s building a new custom home or completing a short sale, I am committed to serving you with every ounce of my knowledge and experience!  Let’s explore real estate in Carson Valley together at www.carsonvalleyhomebuyer.com.
Get To Know Me
I am a family man, married to my wife Kathy, whom I adore, for thirteen years.  I have three daughters Samantha, 26; Chelsea, 22; and Alicia, 20.  Raising these three amazing young ladies and watching them mature into the fine adults they are today, has been a pleasure beyond words.
A farm boy at heart, I studied animal science and business accounting at Chico State for four years but left that field to pursue a carrier as a building and real estate professional.  I have been a successful general contractor in Carson Valley for more than 25 years.  During that time I have built over 200 custom and semi-custom homes.
In 2009 I receive my LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Accredited Professional designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.  In 2010 I received the designation “Professional Green Builder” from the National Association of Home Builders.
My passion is Global Christian Missions.  I am on the Board of Directors for Point of Hope Missions based in Incline Village, Nevada.  It is our goal to provide quality education to the children of the most poverty stricken areas of the world, raising up leaders from among them who can face and overcome the challenges facing their communities.  My work in this area has been focused in the Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum of Nairobi, Kenya.  It is my prayer to be able to return to Kenya at least once a year as long as the need remains.
I am a founding member of the Sierra Nevada Community Land Trust www.snclt.org, a non-profit organization based in Carson Valley, dedicated to providing affordable home ownership opportunities to the hard working people of our community.
I am an active member of LifePoint Church www.lifepointnv.com  in Minden, NV.
