I was born in Greenfield ("The Run"). As a child, my parents moved myself and my sister to Port Vue (a little borough outside of McKeesport) and I have lived in Port Vue ever since. For those of you that don’t know anything about Port Vue, it is a quiet and extremely friendly borough inside of the South Allegheny School district. After high school, I attended Community College South Campus for a period of time. During that period, I studied journalism. After my time at Community had concluded, I attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and received a Bachelor’s of Science degree.
I was drawn to real estate because of the freedom and the fact that your success is solely your responsibility. Most people make enough not to quit and most do enough not to get fired, but with real estate, you can’t think like that unless you want to starve. What may set me apart from most, not agents in particular, is my drive. Real estate is my life and I enjoy it every single day. I wake up at 4:00 a.m. every morning to start my routine. Before I start to get ready for the day, I check my KW email and write my real estate goals down for the day on an index card. I listen to motivational videos on youtube and training videos before and during my commute to Pittsburgh. During my day, I try to make as many contacts as possible and talk about real estate as much as I can until I settle in for the night. Then I try to read as much about this industry as possible before I fall asleep.
Outside of real estate, I enjoy working with my hands. I recently remodeled my home and just a few weeks ago, I made a barn door out of pallet wood for the spare bedroom/my office. I love to read and watch movies with my family.
