Though I have collected over 20 years of experience in the industry, my passion for real estate was actually inherited from my father, who inherited it from his father. Growing up, I watched my grandfather flourish as a contractor and multi-unit housing owner/landlord.
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 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.
For the past 15 years, I managed several property types including: Conventional, tax credit, single-family and condominiums. Since then I have worked in real estate sales, as well as managing residential and commercial properties.
In February 2020, I officially opened Hill Street Realty, Inc. A Real Estate Sales & Management Company.
I am dedicated to providing an excellent real estate experience as well as educating first time home buyers on the home buying process, and much needed benefits of home ownership.
