I have been a REALTOR since 1992 with Edina Realty.

Spearheaded the start of the Minnesota Good Neighbor Award. First award will be in 2020. Now we will work toward 100% of local Minnesota Associations to follow suit with a Good Neighbor Award. We are REALTORS and we are community builders. Our communities need to know "WHO WE R" and how we make our communities better for all.
Enjoy biking, travel (especially cruises) and visiting National Parks.
I have 5 children and 10 grand children and most of all my loving wife Sheryl who is my best friend and is my number one cheerleader.
One of the most important items in my life is to make sure that I can see all my grand children as much as possible and that is a full time job.
I lead the Real Estate Riders (bicycle team) to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis and that is very important to me.
My faith life is supposed to be my number one item in my life and I like to think that it is, but at times I do not show it. I am trying harder to get to that point.
