Real Estate Agent - KW at the Parks - 651506396
In a week or so, my high school class will be celebrating our 50th class reunion. Thankfully, our class has a handful of dedicated individuals who try their best to keep all of us connected and informed about our classmate's lives. These individuals have done this thankless job for decades. The r...
Long before I became a real estate agent, I was a partner in a food brokerage company. What is a food broker?

Tomorrow, Saturday, October 15th, will mark the 5-year anniversary of Dan Wheldon’s death in a fiery car crash during an Indy car race in Las Vegas.

If ever there was a time when our country needed a hero...someone to look up to, it is now. I hope you enjoy!A few days ago, Neil Arm...
There are two subjects you should never bring up unless you are looking for trouble…yep, politics and religion. I apologize in advance, but I just can’t help myself. I know the country is coming to the realization that either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is going to end up leading us for the n...
My father died when I was 22. My dad died before he ever got a chance to see me amount to anything. He never got to see his grandchildren grow up. I never had the opportunity to ask him advice on buying a home, how to be a good parent. There was a song when I was growing up entitled, “My Dad”, wh...
