Personal: I was born and raised in Garrett County and have lived & worked on or around Deep Creek Lake for 20+ years. My beautiful wife Jessica was also born and raised here. She is a Jazzercise instructor and participates heavily in local professional, school and church activities. We have two children, Noah & Kayleah, who both attend local schools here. We are all very proud of community service activities and our participation in various ministries throughout our church, the Loch Lynn Church of God.
I have served on various boards, including the Garrett County Board of Realtors, and I currently chair the local board for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in the Western Maryland & nearby West Vriginia region. I strive to develop life-long relationships with clients and have met a lot of wonderful people along the way!
Sales Experience: In 2000, I started my career in real estate sales with Long & Foster Real Estate. I won the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award in 2001, my first full year in the business. Every year since 2001, I was a member of the coveted Gold Team (annual sales of $5+million) and in my last year at Long and Foster, I earned the Hall of Fame designation. I was the individual office top producer for 3 or 4 of those years, as well. I moved to Railey Realty in 2010 and continued to be one of the top producing agents at that office.
The opportunity to start the real estate division of Taylor-Made was a major turning point in my career. Along with a group of friends (partners Joe & Jodi Refosco and Chad Taylor) that I had worked together for many years, we founded the company in April of 2014. I can honestly say that it was the perfect situation for me and it had been a lifelong goal to one day own my own real estate company and bring forth my vision of a better way to sell real estate. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to hit the ground running with such a formidable company and group of like-minded idividuals. God truly has blessed my family & I, and I am eternally grateful! Since our inception, we have risen quickly through the ranks of local real estate companies. In our first year at Taylormade, we made waves with our 'one-stop shop' approach and our integrated property management division.
We offer EVERYTHING that you need to buy, sell, rent or maintain real estate here in a hassle-free fashion.
