How did you get started in real estate? My father was a Realtor, so I grew up around the business. As a boy, I got a glimpse of just how tremendous an impact - emotionally and financially - a home has upon a family. I knew I wanted to help families find and sell their homes. At the same time, my dad taught me the value of good, old-fashioned, roll-up-your-sleeves hard work and perseverance - a lesson drilled home for me by years on the football field.

How long have you been with your current company? 9 years

Licenses and designations: Associate broker

Awards: 2006-2009 No. 1 producer (number of homes sold) Long & Foster Alexandria/Old Town Office, Life Member NVAR Top Producer (six-plus years as Top Producer), 2005 Realtor Magazine “30 Under 30,” Long & Foster Rookie of the Year

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months? Becoming a father and having my best year yet - 77 homes sold in the past 12 months.

What is your area of specialty? I don’t limit my business to a certain area or type of property. One thing I have become very successful at is selling properties that other agents haven’t been able to sell. I recently sold a home for a lady who had five different agents over the course of two years. Nobody could sell her home. I sold it in one month - without lowering the price. Another seller had seven agents try to sell her home without success. I was able to sell it in 10 days, and then helped her purchase her dream home. On my desk, I have a stack of letters from people I’ve helped, each sharing similar stories.

Most memorable house: One of my current listings: 21 S. Pershing Drive in Arlington. The property is a breathtaking Georgian Colonial with 5,400 square feet. Every detail is just exquisite - right down to the $1,000 Baldwin front door lock.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: In the last couple of years, I have had to watch a number of families sell beloved homes out of financial necessity. Those heartbreaking experiences, collectively, have been my worst.

Describe your personal dream house: I would love to have a big yard for my son and dog to be able to run around and play. As long as my family is together under its roof, I am happy!
