Page Summary

Thank you for serving our country!

With a father who served in the Gulf War, and a grandfather who served in Korea, I know all about military life. Having the  Military Relocation Professional certification is a tremendous honor in the real estate community, and I am very proud to serve military members with their real estate needs. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your incredible sacrifice and dedication to this country.

Being a veteran entitles you to some of the best mortgage benefits in the real estate industry.
