REALTOR in St. Pete Beach, Pinellas County, Florida
I connect buyers and sellers of real estate. That includes everything from distressed properties and vacant lots, to income generating properties in high demand market areas, to first time homebuyers in entry level areas, to luxury condominiums on the beach, to magnificent waterfront homes.
I help people understand how to buy, sell, or invest in real estate so that they can make informed and profitable decisions, and proceed with ease and confidence.
My passion is teaching people how to have real estate build wealth for them. And yes, I practice what I preach.
My focus area is the coastal area of Pinellas County, Florida, including most of the Tampa Bay Suncoast, primarily the beaches, near beach areas, and waterfront properties.
I regularly service these communities and nearby areas:
- St Pete Beach
- Treasure Island
- Sunset Beach
- Madeira Beach
- South Pasadena
- West Saint Petersburg
- Jungle Prada
- Bay Pines
- and Dunedin.
This is not only where I work, but also where I play and live.
This is home.
Realtor® and Veteran
I’m a United States Air Force Veteran (8 years, separated as an E-5), and I absolutely love to work with other Veterans and Active Duty service members.
Yes, there are plenty of Realtors who can handle your VA Home Loan. But why not work with someone who is also a Veteran?
Even with that coveted DD-214 in-hand we are still a family, and I will treat you as family.
A shared experience, a common bond, mutual respect, laced together with a twisted sense of humor and inappropriate comments (if appropriate to do so).
I demand of myself that I operate with that level of honesty and integrity that only we veterans can fully appreciate.
Make sure you head over to my Military / Veterans page for tons of great information.
Tip of the Day: Did you know that you can use your VA Home Loan multiple times? It’s not a one-time-only offer!
Realtor® and LCAM
I’m an experienced LCAM (that’s Licensed Community Association Manager), with years of experience managing Condominiums and Homeowners Associations.
My portfolio averaged 12 properties, from a couple dozen unit townhomes; to several HOAs with over 400 homes (one over 800); to a luxury condominium in downtown Tampa; to a quaint condo village in Hudson.
My service area ranged from townhomes in Venice, north to a condo on Clearwater Beach, and one in Hudson, east through several areas in Tampa, Brandon, Riverview, and Valrico, out to Davenport, and even to a 400+ house homeowner association in Kissimmee!
Most of these properties needed to be inspected once every two weeks, and had monthly Board meetings.
As part of the normal duties, I:
- prepared the operating and reserve budgets for each property, from which the assessments were determined;
- attended the Board of Directors meetings;
- performed exterior property and common area inspections;
- participated directly with vendors for proposals, scope of work, ongoing project management, completion, approvals, and payments;
- and ongoing daily management.
I have participated in a turnover from a developer to the new Board of Directors consisting of the homeowners; annual meetings / elections; a recall of a board, and numerous other “once in a career” scenarios.
On the corporate side at the local office, I was the go-to guy for technology questions, general legal questions (disclaimer: within the scope of my license, not “unlicensed practice of law”), new client acquisition, and existing at-risk client retention.
How does my LCAM experience benefit you and your real estate purchase or sale?
With that background, I can most definitely help you navigate the benefits and hazards of buying or selling a property in a condo or HOA.
You could call it my unfair Advantage!
