I Love This Career
Since becoming a Realtor early in 2006, I've really enjoyed helping people buy and sell homes. I had previously been the business manager of a local motorcycle dealership when my mother, Dorothy Merritt, asked me to join her in real estate. I already had a sense of what was involved since Mom has been a Realtor my whole adult life and has shared many experiences. I had a hard time believing that selling homes would be as much fun as selling motorcycles, but I was wrong. I guess it has helped that I consider myself to be in a service industry and not in a "sales" position. I devote my efforts to finding the best solution for my client's real estate needs. Helping people find their next home and/or marketing their current home has become a passion for me. It is a real pleasure to get to know the people I work with and many past clients have become good friends that I see often.
Beyond my professional career, I am father of four little boys: Joshie (10), Joseph (8), Jonathan (6) and Jared (newborn). I am an avid motorcycle enthusiast who has been riding since 1986. I appreciate my career and the support I receive from family and friends as it allows me to provide for my family as I serve you.
