I sure learned a lot in my 20+ years of customer service and sales leadership positions to help me give all I can for my clients. Performing in a rock band taught me a lot, too.
Some things I learned being in a band that make me a great REALTOR for you:
1. Preparation and practice are huge difference-makers.
When we were booked to play an unfamiliar venue, I’d go ahead of time to check out the space to plan a unique show and try to ensure any surprises were those under our control. As for practice, for every 40 minute set on stage there were hundreds and hundreds of hours rehearsing. I see my work as a REALTOR in much the same way. My clients might not know all the hours I put in getting everything perfected for them, but the polished end results will be the proof.
2. It’s all about creating positive experiences for others.
For me, being on stage meant being responsible to everyone watching to give back 10 times the value of their attention. Oh, I had fun, but the important thing was making sure those depending on me had a great time. Likewise, I am a REALTOR to help make the potentially challenging real estate transactions as enjoyable and stress-free for you as possible.
3. You have to strategize, but be able to go with the flow.
In rock & roll I suppose it’s usually expressed the other way around; you never know what can happen during a show, but the best performers don’t go on without a plan. People who have worked with me remark both about my organization and strategic planning as well as my calm, unflustered demeanor. I minimize uncertainties, but when the unexpected happens, I’m known for being flexible and a calming influence.
A few other things about me you might like to know:
Moving to a new home is something I’m very familiar with, since I grew up with a dad in the Army. We really did move about every three years or so. I understand the challenges and the thrill families can experience changing homes.
I have a terrific, supportive family. My wife is a Charlotte native and an RN. My dog is a bassett-staffordshire terrier mix. We think he’s also a Charlotte native.
I’ve lived in Huntersville almost 10 years now. In the Charlotte area just about 20 years.
I’m a student of and strong believer in positive psychology. I try to always be learning, and always be sharing.
I love to read, am into comics, passionately support local businesses, enjoy craft beer, and, of course, get out to enjoy live music as often as I can.
