About Me

I have been a Las Vegas resident for over 34 Years and have a great love for this city and the people in it.  As a Mortgage Advisor, I am passionate about working with individuals and families to help them achieve their dream to own a home.  I approach every customer with honesty, open communication and a desire to understand their needs and challenges. I am an active Real Estate Investor which has helped me understand the benefits and challenges of home ownership and property ownership in Las Vegas from multiple perspectives.

As a retired Police Lieutenant with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department I have had a wide range of experiences that give me a unique perspective and empathy for those around me. I have served as Section Commander of the Special Victim Section overseeing child death/abuse investigations, missing persons, animal cruelty, and elder exploitation.  I have also served in the Financial Crimes section overseeing complex investigations involving fraudulent activity. I have an Associates in Criminal Justice from Redlands Community College and a BA in Organizational Leadership from the University of Oklahoma.

When I am home, I love spending time with my wife, 3 year old daughter and our two dogs Brinkley and Zoey.  I enjoy photography and anything outdoors in addition to personal finance and investing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many properties should I look at?

The total number of properties you may look at will depend on several factors, such as your budget and the housing availability in your area. In general, real estate agents recommend that homebuyers look at several properties before making a decision, but there is not an exact number. Most people look at 10 homes, at a minimum, so they can compare them. However, you may find the dream house with more or fewer searches.

What is the best way to search for homes?

When it comes to the best home buying tips, there are different ways to search for properties. Statistics from the National Association of REALTORS® reveal that 51 percent of buyers searched and found their homes on the internet, while 30 percent used real estate agents. Other ways to search for homes include asking friends, relatives, neighbors and homebuilders for help. A small percentage of homebuyers used newspaper advertisements and yard or open house signs to search for homes.

Should I get pre-approval before making an offer?

Although a pre-approval is not one of the required steps to buying a house, it can certainly help you stand out in a competitive market with many buyers. A pre-approval can show sellers that you’re serious and capable of getting a mortgage, so they may be more likely to accept your offer.
