How did you get started in real estate? I had spent 20 years managing hotels and resorts and met my future wife, who had been an agent for several years. We’ve been a team ever since.

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I survived a heart attack and bypass surgery.

Highest-priced home sold: $1,000,000

Most memorable home: My client bought the weekend retreat of a former congressman on Goose Creek. It had no running water — a cistern collected rainwater — no plumbing for bathrooms, no septic or sewer. It has an incinerator toilet. My client loved fishing on Goose Creek, converted and updated it and made it his primary residence.

Worst experience: I bought an investment property in Colorado in 1981 for $52,000 and at a 16 percent interest rate. The market collapsed and two years later I couldn’t get $25,000 for it. Colorado is beautiful, but that was ugly.
