I'm a full-time REALTOR and owner with the Mad City Dream Homes real estate team in Madison, Wisconsin. I grew up just outside of Milwaukee and found my way to UW-Madison for college, where I earned my Engineering degree in 1991. After living in Chicago for a stretch, my wife Kellie and I landed in Madison for good in 1999. In the early 2000s I began fixing and flipping homes and investing in real estate. Along the way I learned I really enjoyed the whole field of real estate. I was very curious about understanding the market and invested a lot of my time studying it and making sense of it. In 2006, I earned my salesperson license and I have been a real estate agent ever since. In 2019, I also obtained my broker’s license.
Why I love working in real estate:
It's a real privilege for me to help each client achieve their unique real estate goals. Every purchase and sale is different, and with our team we're able to problem-solve and customize our approach and do so much for our clients. We have such a talented, hard-working, and service-oriented team. I learn a ton from my team members and they inspire me to improve. I get a lot of satisfaction knowing that we're serving our clients at a very high level, and in the process making many new friends.
Favorite thing to do in the Madison area:
I really appreciate all of the natural spaces and outdoor activities that are so accessible in Dane County. There are so many great places to ride a bike, take a hike, or hang out by a lake.
Favorite local restaurant:
The Nile on the west side of Madison. It's not fancy, but the food is great. It has a nice selection of Mediterranean and vegetarian dishes.
Local charity I am passionate about:
Protecting the environment and saving our natural spaces is a priority for me. I serve on the operating committee for the Foundation for Dane County Parks, where I donate my time and money. Our real estate team also donates our marketing expertise to help the foundation further its cause.
Favorite way to spend an afternoon:
Spending time with my family. I'm married and have three kids who are growing up fast! I also love to write and read, and I always enjoy learning and expanding my horizons.
