Welcome to my website. Throughout my career, public service has been my forte. Being a part of JBGoodwin REALTORS® is a continuation of who I am. I’m a firm believer in their mission statement: “Making a difference in People’s lives”. My goal is to continue providing a service to make your experience in buying, selling and leasing fulfilling and gratifying.
I was born and raised in San Diego Texas. Shortly after graduation from high school, I enlisted in the United States Navy. Upon my honorable discharged, I was recruited by the Los Angeles Police Department in Los Angeles, California. During my tenure with the Police Department I received by Associate Degree in Administration of Justice. I continued my education and received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Redlands in Public Management….Retired with 25 years of public service.
I moved back to Texas in 1995. I decided to settle in Pflugerville. Commissioned as a Peace Officer, I continued my career as a public servant as an investigator with the Travis County Coroner’s Office, Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Workers Compensation, Texas Department of Insurance and a Reserve Police Officer for Pflugerville Police Department.
In 2004 I became a Deputy Constable with the Travis County Constables Office. My interest in Real Estate became more apparent during my tenure as a deputy constable. I dealt with evictions, foreclosures and other related issues. I had contact with renters who always asked for information regarding buying property. They felt renting was throwing money away. I decided to do some research in the area of Real Estate. It enhanced my knowledge, but more importantly I became a resource for them. That’s been my mission statement: “ Making a difference in People’s lives”.
I completed my course work in Real Estate. I spoke to a number of people in the business to get an idea on what to expect, I was encouraged by their responses. They loved and enjoyed the business. I researched some of the brokers in town. JBGoodwin REALTORS® by far exceeded my expectations. My time in the business has been challenging and fulfilling. I will always be there for you…..
