I received my real estate license in 1978. Two years later I decided to take a position with a Fortune 100 telecommunications company. For 11 years I worked in that industry, in time rising to a position of VP. The opportunity opened for me acquire my Appraisers license, so I took a position with a Real Estate/Appraiser Company to continue my training as an Appraiser. I found myself becoming more involved in the real estate side of the business and enjoyed helping people pursue their dreams of home ownership, finding that perfect investment property or taking time to give understanding to the process involved in listing or selling their properties. I founded Trinity Real Estate Partners, which has given me more flexibility and freedom to negotiate business transactions.
