What are your goals in your role at your company?
My goal is to provide my clients with accurate market knowledge and profitable solutions for the acquisition or disposition of investment real estate assets across the state of Iowa and to be recognized as the market leader in the industry.

What are your goals for your community involvement?
To create a company that provides local investors the opportunity to invest in local real estate; to serve my community with my time, passion and dollars; and to be a great mentor/example to my daughter, friends and colleagues.

What’s your biggest passion and why?
I sincerely cannot define one single passion. I am passionate about everything I do, sometimes to a fault. My daughter, my fiancé, my brother and his family, my career and clients, to politics and charity, they all demand passion. A passionless effort at anything creates a meaningless end result.

What is it that drives you?
My daughter is the driver, along with my own will to succeed. I came from nothing, and my will to break the cycle continues to drive me from one accomplishment to the next. Hopefully that drive translates into providing my daughter opportunities I wasn’t lucky enough to have growing up.

What are your future aspirations?
My aspirations for business are to continue to be the leading investment broker for years to come and to create a company that changes the way people invest in real estate in our market by providing real estate investment opportunities for local investors they wouldn’t have otherwise had.
