Hello Thank you for checking out my bio!!! I moved to Lakeland in 1999 from Ft. Myers. Shortly after moving to Lakeland I started training in Taekwondo, and have achieved the position of Master Instructor, and hold a 4th degree black belt with the US Chung Do Kwan Association, 3rd degree black belt with the ATA and level 1 instructor in Krav Maga, and a brown belt in combat Hapkido. I have been training in Martial Arts for over 16 years and teaching for 14. Eight years of my training was spent as a full time instructor traveling all over the United States competing in tournaments achieving state, national and world titles. My lengthy experience in Martial Arts has allowed me to apply a lot of the same principles to real estate and thrive!!!
My career in Real Estate started after meeting our Broker, Casey Tray. His children were training at a martial arts school I was teaching for while I was managing an auto collision center full time. After a few conversations Casey suggested that I go to school and work towards achieving my real estate license. Shortly after, I graduated from the Regal School of Real state here in Lakeland, FL in May of 2015. After 2 years of helping buyers, sellers, and renters I went back to school and obtained my Brokers license.
From the start of my career in real estate I have been able to help many people from many different walks of life. Whether it was buying their first home, selling to up or down-size, or working with investors all of these transactions lead to a vast knowledge of the intricacies of real estate. I also have had the opportunity to help a buyer find and purchase a 10+ acre commercial property with multiple buildings to renovate into their distribution and corporate offices!!!
I am also very active in my church and I am working on becoming an ordained Youth Pastor and deacon. I have been working with the youth as a volunteer leader since I was 18 and now feel the call of God to obtain my ordination. I also play drums for our worship services at First Baptist of Highland City. I have had the priveledge of going on a few missions trips to New York, West Virginia, and have been to Haiti twice.
A few of my hobbies are Martial arts of course, Airsoft, playing the drums, and piano. Some of my goals are to become SCUBA certified, achieve my Pastoral Ordination, and purchase my first investment property.
What I enjoy most about Real Estate is the joy I get to see on the faces of the people I get to help achieve their dreams!!!
