I was born and raised in Dallas, and I've lived in the Austin area since 1988. After graduating from Southwestern University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a minor in Economics (yawn), I worked for a few years in retail and restaurant management before starting my own small marketing company, Digital Homefront, in 1996. Not long after that, I became a licensed Realtor and experimented with every conceivable marketing technique that I could find. In late 2004, I started my own firm, Austin Texas Homes, LLC, which I still owns and operate today. On a personal note, I've been married to my beautiful wife, Pam, since 1993, and we have four awesome kids (one boy, three girls). Having been self-employed since I was 25 years old, I understand the value of using time wisely, and I've been happy to stay ahead of the curve with regard to internet marketing and SEO. The website that I started in 1998 remains in the top few spots on Google for almost every major real estate term that I care to track. I am a rather prolific blogger, too, having started actively blogging in 2004 (later, in 2006, I started a business blog). Needless to say, most people hadn’t even heard of this method when I began, and I've learned a lot along the way about how to build a solid online reputation and a following that will result in referrals and sales. I've managed to develop a large and growing online “audience” of people who are paying attention to my efforts these days, and I would love to help you do the same thing. To this point, I have served as a paid coach for real estate, social media, marketing, sales, and writing. Feel free to contact me anytime if you need help with those areas, or if you know anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin, Texas area.
