I am a native Texan with four great kids and I am almost an empty nester.  WHOO HOO!! (really I'm kinda sad that they are all growing up so fast)  I remember my first home purchase and ultimate sale. It was scary and looking back I now know there a lot of things that I should have understood more clearly and questions I should have asked my agent about the process. 

This has given me a passion for client service as an agent and even more so as a broker. I strongly believe in hiring and developing the best people in our industry that truly understand it is an honor to serve our clients. I am really geeky about this business and I love helping people. We walk clients through every step of the process so that they are comfortable and confident when they buy or sell with Crane Realty Group.

Thank you for taking the time to read up on me. Education about the real estate process is one of the hallmarks of my service to you. Please know that I will put your needs above my own. Attention to detail, education and perseverance are trademarks of my work ethic. Your success is my goal whether you are “buying a home” or “selling a home”. I will expertly guide you through the entire process.

My wife and I built our first home in Plano and I would visit the construction site daily with a desire to become familiar with the process while also observing the progress that had been made. If you are building and need an agent that will make a weekly report back to you on the progress being made then I’m your Realtor®.

I have had the privilege of working for some high tech companies such as Motorola, and DSC Communications. Now, retired from engineering, I am a full-time licensed Realtor® in Texas focusing on the DFW metro area. My wife of 25 years, daughter and I call Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney home. We are very active in our church, Prestonwood Baptist in Plano where we have been members for over 25 years. I am also involved in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
