Growing up in Kansas City, I thought I was going to be an architect. I loved artistry and creating things. I envisioned building beautiful houses, but after graduating from Kansas University with a degree in music and moving to Los Angeles in 1968 I built something else - a music career. I worked as a singer/songwriter for fifteen years, composing everything from hit songs to feature film soundtracks.
Still, my love for homes and design stayed near. My partner and I scraped together $1,500 and bought our first home in 1973. Having a beautiful home to furnish deepened my passion for interior design. I began buying and selling furnishings, photographs, and paintings. I always had a great sense for real estate, and even after officially starting my career twelve years ago, I love it more each day.
I quickly discovered music and selling real estate aren’t very far apart. They’re both about seeing your essence represented in a more tangible form. The best part of real estate is sharing that magical moment when someone sees their dream home for the first time. Looking back, I realize I did become the architect I envisioned - An architect of finding gorgeous homes for wonderful people.
My Promise to You:
True ART is in humanity.
I don’t sell houses, I sell homes and I understand what makes people love them. It’s where you can relax and truly be yourself. I speak to the key elements that make you who you are and find homes that exemplify your essence. I work hard to build an atmosphere that illuminates these essentials.
Though I’ve changed with the times, I’ve never let go of my Midwestern roots. At the end of the day, I hang my hat on being the most ethical of businessman. I am very straight forward and don’t cut corners. I use my wisdom and steady hand to take the pressure off you.
There is always time for kindness, and what better time than now.
Fun things about me:
During my career as a singer/songwriter I had two top 40 hits ("Just Can't Win ‘Em All" and "Steal the Night") and a platinum album for Tiffany's recording of "Hold an Old Friend's Hand." I recently produced the film, Entropy, premiering it at the San Diego film festival.
I’ve also been a proud member and Concert Producer of the Los Angeles Gay Men’s Chorus (GMCLA) since 1993; a non-profit charity committed to changing hearts and minds through music, helping people live more authentically. We tour high schools singing and talking about our lives; have a youth choir, a nationally touring musical, as well as perform numerous concerts.
