For Your "Finest Real Estate Experience"...GUARANTEED!
Global, now local. I was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa to an Apartheid era exile. We emigrated to England for five years and then we moved to Canada in 1971 where I was raised. After graduating from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON with a Bachelor of Physical Education (B.P.E), I enrolled in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and served for 28 plus years. During my military service, I have lived in Canada, Germany, and I did a four-year exchange with the USAF at Oklahoma City, OK., and I have spent many months in South-West Asia. Dedicated to life-long learning, I attained my Master of Laws (LL.M) degree, with a specialization in Mediation, from Osgoode Hall Law School (York University, Toronto, ON) in 2016. I am also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator and a Notary. In 2010, I had the good fortune to meet Kelly Ann who has been my wonderful wife since our idyllic wedding in Kauai in 2014.
I have had extensive community volunteerism and service with the United Way, Rotary, and Masonry.
Upon retirement from the RCAF, we moved to the Tampa area; first Sarasota, then Riverview and finally, we settled in Valencia Lakes in Wimauma. All that moving and travel means that I have experienced many different peoples and cultures and the one thing that has remained constant with me throughout has been my commitment to integrity and living by the Golden Rule. I have owned numerous homes and I have been a renter as well both globally and locally. I have experienced the real estate market when it was stagnant and when it was booming – ‘Been there, done that’. Understanding your needs starts by truly listening to you and learning what you really want; personal experience and wisdom comes into the equation too.
Prior to moving into Valencia Lakes, we sold our home in Riverview in 2017 in less than 24 hours, with one viewing. Ready the home for sale, price it honestly, market it properly, and it will sell fast.

I have a passion for nice homes and I believe that we all want to live in our dream home in our dream community. As I still remind my grown children, putting a timeline on a dream converts that dream into a goal. And Goals are achievable! I want to help people achieve their goal of owing that dream home. A beautiful home is only one element of the equation, location and community are others. Entrust me to assist you with your real estate needs and I will serve you with integrity.
