My parents were real estate investors and I grew in the rental business. I decided to go into the real estate and insurance business as an alternative to practicing law when I finished law school.

The Agent you choose REALLY does make a difference

I spent 22+ years on the corporate side and wanted something that would allow me to work more independently. While I found it, I need to learn to pull back and strike a balance.

I never went in thinking it was a Service sector job, wasn't looking for that. I have an architectural design and development background so it was a no brainer to get my RE license and things just evolved. I love architecture and I like the selling process, you need people to make the process work.

I initially got in to help my parents with contracts when they went to conferences.  Missed a nice commission check with my first buyer because I couldn't show a property due to a conflicting training appointment.  Had I not had that appointment and gotten the commission check, it may be a different story for me now (probably would have been a part time agent during my IT career).

I've always been a computer guy, so not getting my degrees and entering the IT workforce was never a thought.  Now I get to use my corporate IT experience in real estate, which has been a big success so far.

I was a financial adviser and when I moved to Kauai several of my clients wanted to invest in real estate here. After making a lot of money for a couple of agents I figured since I was doing all the contracts anyway I may as well get the commissions too!
