Since I was young, I have been driven to make a name for myself. I started my own lawn care business as a teenager, and have only expanded my entrepreneurial and customer service skills from there. After graduating from Minnesota State University in Mankato with a Bachelor's degree in Finance, and a minor in Marketing and Business administration, I began a career as a financial advisor. I have a sincere passion for sales and marketing, which is what drew me to real estate sales. I joined RE/MAX Lakes Realty in 2015 and bring with me an incredible amount of business experience and knowledge of the market. I am a family man at heart. I spend my free time with my wife Sabrina, son Leo and daughter Eva, and I also enjoy the outdoors, namely playing golf, fishing, and hunting. I fully understand and appreciate how important customer service is, especially in the real estate industry. I strive to provide high quality customer service, along with new and innovative marketing concepts, allowing my clients realty dreams to become reality.

Before the big Walleye opener on the Iowa Great Lakes, you will find Trappers Bay lined with fishing the entire length, trying to land a big walleye. Trappers has many fishing spots to choose from, however, on either side of the bridge usually produces the best fishing. Make sure to get there early, or you will likely not get an ideal spot in the early spring....
