I have the privilege of being the principal broker and active real estate agent at Cornerstone Business Group, Inc., based in Winchester, VA. I’ve been in the real estate business since 1990 when I entered the field as an investor. My investing business covered Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Petersburg, Basye, Winchester, and Frederick County, VA. Over those years, I bought many properties which became rentals and ultimately part of my retirement.
Throughout the 1980s to the present, I have also been a Virginia State Contractor. I started Quality Electric Co. in 1984 and it continues to provide services and jobs in the Northern Virginia area. The electrical contracting company is often involved with my clients who list and who buy homes through Cornerstone. It is my commitment to make sure a home is safe electrically before a client takes ownership, and if I am the listing agent, I look at the electrical system prior to listing the home to make sure there is nothing wrong that will cause a home inspector to site the home and possibly kill the deal.
During the 1980s through the mid-2000s, I returned to college to gain more insight into the job I held at the time. I also added learning in new fields to aid me in the work I would do after retirement. In 2006, I retired from my previous career and started a real estate brokerage. Real estate had been a major part of my life up to that point and it continues to play a major role in my life after retirement. I did manage to acquire four master’s degrees and a PhD through the education years, and the addition of an MBA has helped me in my second career. For me, education is simply a great way to keep my brain engaged and sharp. In the real estate business, you need to have all your synapses firing to keep ahead of the competition.
The combination of decades of real estate investing and construction experience, combined with a great education, make me uniquely qualified in the real estate business. I make sure I put all those benefits to work for my clients on every sale.
