Steve is a family man with a devotion to God, his beautiful wife and two children. He has always had a passion for helping others and has volunteered in many areas from youth ministry to homeless outreach. He describes that one of his most impactful times volunteering grew out of the financial crisis of 2008, where he saw firsthand the effects it had on those close to him. In the years following the crisis he volunteered his free time to educating and helping individuals and families rebuild their financial lives while motivating and encouraging them to stay on track with the individual plan they designed together.
Steve is an entrepreneur, with many skills ranging from sales, marketing, and design, to engineering, manufacturing, and project management. He has worked in a variety of industries gaining invaluable knowledge and experience along the way.
As an owner/operator of a marketing and graphic design company, he used his creative skills and keen eye for design to help businesses develop a brand and marketing strategy that best fit their needs. Using his understanding of evolving technology in business and his skills for project management, Steve successfully transitioned careers by taking a position for an innovative and growing medical device manufacturer with the task of researching, structuring and implementing a companywide ERP system.
Over those years Steve gained a wealth of knowledge in product development, engineering and manufacturing and quickly moved into Production and Quality Management for the company. Over his 12 years in management he was greatly responsible for developing systems, automating processes, and managing the ERP system he implemented, while helping grow the company to the next level with a passionate drive for increasing efficiency and reducing costs at every opportunity.
Steve also has a great joy for woodworking and home remodeling and in following his entrepreneurial spirit he, along with his wife, started a side business out of his garage workshop designing and handcrafting custom wood light fixtures. What initially started as a weekend hobby, and excuse to buy more tools and make sawdust, quickly grew into a large and profitable business with sales expanding internationally and a net profit greatly exceeding that of his salaried management position.
From as early as Steve can remember he has had an interest in real estate. He recalls being a kid and loving his family’s regular weekend adventures of looking at various model homes in the community and dreaming of “someday...” Steve bought his first investment property in 2003 and quickly got to work putting holes in the walls and completely renovating the house from the ground up, further solidifying his love for Real Estate and the desire to pursue a fulfilling and rewarding career as a Relator.
