How did you get started in real estate? My wife and I decided that it made more sense for me to stop my career as a professional golfer when our daughter was born, in order to have one parent home with her full time.After two years as a house daddy, I was ready for a new career.

I enjoyed the process we had just gone through of buying our new home and felt it would be a good fit for me as a career. Almost immediately afterthe first couple of real estate classes, I knew I would enjoy this profession.

Most memorable house: A family who was new to this country wanted the best schools for their 8-year-old son.

It ended up taking three years to find them their dream home.

With so many investors in the market, we had to compete against escalation clauses and waived appraisals and home inspections. After six or seven unsuccessful offers, the family was finally successful in buying what turned out to be the nicest home that they had seen in their three years of looking.
