Nice To Meet You

Following my passion led me to pursue a career in real estate, upon the completion of my enlistment in the U.S. Marine Corps. I began working in real estate sales, shortly after, with Coldwell Banker in Savannah GA until the 2008 recession. What was a difficult time in our industry brought me to the city I love; Jacksonville, Florida. In February 2020, I was proud to officially open Hill Street Realty, Inc. A Real Estate Sales & Management Company. I am proud to dedicate my career to creating a real estate experience with peace of mind and organized solutions.

  • Look beyond the staging and decorative items to see the features and fixtures that convey the house.
  • Check the condition of the home.
    Keep track of photos and notes.
    Consider possible home improvements you might want to make so you can research costs later.
