I Know This Place.
I grew up here, South of Caldwell, by Lake Lowell. I grew up in the dirt, topping corn, changing lines, bailing and bucking, and trying to stay out of trouble. I graduated from Idaho schools (Vallivue), played football (rode the bench) on Idaho fields, and worked for Idaho businesess. I loved to hunt chukar and to ski Bogus Basin. Construction and building is in my blood, since my father owned Dorsey Construction for over 25 years; i've hit my thumb a few times. My career took me out of Idaho for a time to Montreal, Canada, then Ottawa, Utah, Ohio, Colorado, and we finally had the opportunity to move back to the Treasure Valley in 2011.
Comprehensive Real Estate Experience.
It's not very often that you meet a Realtor that has experience in Wholesale Lending as a wholesale rep, Title experience as a closer and title rep, Hard Money lending as a lender, and down payment assistance as a small business owner. Part of this experience put me in board rooms in nearly half of the United States teaching lenders and Realtors from all over the country. As a Real Estate agent here, I'm just getting started, but my testimonials are all stories about how another "seasoned" agent was involved, but didn't get the results the client wanted.
I'm proud of my career, and I think this wealth of business experience that included 7 years as a Materials Manager for a publicly traded manufacturing firm gives me an edge in negotiation, problem solving, and critical path to cost/profit. I enjoy putting transactions together and had the opportunity to negotiate with many Fortune 500 banks doing down payment assistance during my career.
Many agents want a seller's property to work for them rather than them working for the seller. In order to become successful I've had to get comfortable with the uncomfortable such as knocking doors to find sellers/buyers, creating additional customized websites for properties, blogging and posting on social media and classified sites to get additional exposure, etc. If you're looking for a name brand Realtor, I'm probably not your guy, but if you want hustle, then I can do that.
