How did you get started in real estate? I retired from the Navy after 35 years of service. I looked for work with various defense contractors in the Washington area for several months. After several unsuccessful contract proposals, I decided to seek opportunities where the decision to work was mine. I got a real estate license and have been an agent with Coldwell Banker ever since.

How long with the current company? 18 years

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Added “rounding Cape Horn” to my list of travel experiences.

What is your area of specialty? St. Mary’s, Calvert and Charles counties

Highest-priced home sold: $666,900

Most memorable house: It was a waterfront home in Prince George’s County that I listed and sold. The house was and is a great home, but the most memorable experience was working with the buyers, a TV news personality and her prominent husband. They were knowledgeable and demanded high standards. Yet, they were gracious, patient and understanding as the builder and I worked to meet their needs.

Worst experience: Working as a listing agent in the sale of a badly deteriorated property that was part of an estate. The equity in the property had been more than removed by a series of refinancings before the owners’ death. The negotiations with the mortgage holders, the buyer and the executor of the estate to find agreement to allocate the financial pain of the transaction was the most difficult thing I have had to accomplish as a real estate agent.
