Next Chapter


I’m excited to share with you my plans for the future. As you know, I grew up in the racing world and spent more than a decade driving race cars for a living. That was an amazing career but I decided I was ready to throttle back a bit and return to my native Colorado. I still love racing–it’s a passion I’ve always shared with my family and I plan to keep one foot in that world as I move forward. At the same time, I have been looking for new opportunities and it was important to me to have something that would allow me the flexibility to race if I ever decide to do so again. I am fortunate to have found the perfect fit in joining Drew’s Home Team, as a real estate agent.

Working in real estate builds on some of my natural strengths and gives me a great opportunity to help my friends and family in the racing community who are considering buying or selling real estate. I plan to devote the same intensity I have for racing into helping people with their home buying and selling needs.

In order to accelerate the transition and my learning curve, I have decided to team up with Drew Schneider at Drew’s Home Team. Drew and I have similar ideals and beliefs about how we want to treat our clients. He has over 12 years of experience in real estate and is in the top 2% nationally of all agents. Most importantly, he has a great reputation for being an advocate for his clients, not only through the home buying or selling process, but also by maintaining that relationship as an advisor and friend beyond the transaction. By utilizing this opportunity to mentor with Drew, I know I will be able to provide you with the best real estate experience.

I would love the opportunity to work with you if you are considering buying or selling. Whether you’re looking to buy your first home, or sell the one you have and upgrade to that home you’ve been dreaming of, I’d love to help. Maybe something with a four-car garage, so you can work on your pet project? I just bought a 62′ Vette and I know I could use some extra garage space. My dad owned this car 40 years ago and when I had the opportunity, I couldn’t resist buying it. I’m also looking into building a rental property portfolio as a strategy for my own retirement. If that’s something that interests you, let me know and we can certainly look into that for your future.


I’ll still be posting on Facebook about what I’m up to and will be adding some information about the events and charities that I’m involved in.
