I became licensed in 1981. I worked for a law Firm managing properties that the were working for a bank that had some financial issues. I leased, managed and sold properties from New Jersey to Florida. Then I took off on my own and had a commercial brokerage in Atlanta, until the market changed. After this change I began selling new homes for builders in the Atlanta market for over 10 years. Coming back to the PNW, and into a completely different market, I went with a major firm in Clark County listing and selling. I have pretty much stayed in this venue since.
