In His Own Words

My goal has been focusing on building the Blue 9 Realty name by performing for our clients, operating with integrity, and listening closely to the needs of my clients. I expect the best from my agents, and in turn they receive the best support any agent could ask for. I also believe that to be an effective leader I must lead by example, own the mistakes, and show appreciation when deserved. I expect my agents to put the needs of their customers before their own, and I have watched with great pride when they have done so.

There are a number of things I find important in life, but philanthropy is probably the most important to me. Throughout my life I have seen how serving the needs of others benefits the community and the world. I have assisted with Cleft Palate surgeries in Peru, and I have helped rebuild parts of an orphanage in Ukraine. Locally I have supported Islamorada Community Entertainment with a sponsorship for The Baygrass Bluegrass Festival, worked The Gigantic nautical Flea Market, and raised tens of thousands for The Good Health Clinic, our local community theater, and individuals in need. Although I do mention it here, it’s not something I do for accolades, It’s how I am built, it’s in my DNA. All of my agents are actively service the community in some form, and most of my agents far surpass what I am able to do for the community.

My hope is that this goodwill, fair dealing, and performance allows us to build a highly respected brand in The Upper Keys. I have tried to build a real estate company which I would refer to my own friends and family, and I believe I have succeeded in  doing so. My hope is that you will entrust your real estate needs with us, knowing that we will perform diligently, with integrity, and confidentiality. If you need a Realtor® in The Keys, call me!.
