I recognize that real estate isn't just about houses. I know it's about people and families, which I hold very dear. Let me share some background information about myself:

In my life before real estate, I obtained my B.S. in Accounting from Rutgers University and have over 30 years' experience as an Accountant and Income Tax Consultant and Practitioner. Since becoming a licensed Realtor more than 12 years ago, I have obtained the following designations in real estate: ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute), SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist), SFR (Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource), and the one I'm most proud to have achieve, the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation which is held by less than 4% of all realtors in the country. My professional realtor memberships include:

  • National Association of Realtors, (NAR)
  • Virginia Association of Realtors (VAR)
  • Hampton Roads Realtors Association (HRRA)
  • National Society of Tax Professionals
  • National Association of Tax Practitioners
  • Virginia Association of Tax Practitioners

My wife Archyne and I reside in the Great Bridge area of Chesapeake and have 5 adult children, 8 grandchildren, and 1 great granddaughter. We are members of the New Galilee Baptist Church in Chesapeake, where I am actively involved as a Deacon and member of our Male Chorus. My wife and I truly enjoy traveling and time spent with our family.
