What’s your background?
I am a Colorado native, mountain man at heart. Grew up on a snowboard and a dirtbike, love my family, have an amazing woman and no kids other than my furry child – a 10 year old Border Collie. I have a fairly interesting background for work. Shortly after highschool I was a caregiver at an assisted living facility in Evergreen Colorado, then I got my barber license, my mom and I opened a barbershop in Cherry Creek North. Then I became a real estate agent for another company but quickly realized I wanted more than they could provide so I looked around and found my work family in Atlas Real Estate Group and haven’t looked back since!
Why did you choose to work with Atlas Real Estate Group?
I chose Atlas because I felt the positive vibe when interviewing for new opportunities. That vibe has expanded exponentially since then as I didn’t know what I was getting into! This company RULES!!! I love the environment, the people, and what the company stands for as well as what it does for its employees and its community in general.
What is the greatest challenge you see in real estate and how do you work towards overcoming it?
Keeping ahead of the pace! The way I work towards overcoming it is staying organized, networking (communicating with other people dealing with the market), and just staying active in the market so that I’m not getting passed up by the change!
What is at the top of your bucket list?
I am working on some new bucket list items as I was able to check off my top bucket list item in February of 2017 which was Heli-snowboarding. I think my next #1 bucket list item would be to purchase or build a cabin in the mountains somewhere.
What is the greatest advice you’ve ever received?
BUY REAL ESTATE!!!
