Before real estate, JD was in property management. Starting as a leasing consultant, he worked his way into a maintenance manager position.
He decided to get into Real Estate after being in property management for 15 years and seeing the endless possibilities of being successful while doing what he loves. As he learned more about the industry he began to feel confident enough to give it a go and he’s truly glad he did.
Though the lows in real estate are painful, JD loves the business because the highs are exhilarating. JD says that if you’ve never experienced the joy of a signed contract, or a clear to close, then you have no clue just how energized and happy a signature or a few words can make you feel.
Outside of Real Estate, family time is tough for JD to come by because he, Jessica, and their three children are all so busy, but he finds that it is necessary to create that time together! He is still at his core a handyman with a “honey do list” that stays quite lengthy. He also enjoys creating music as that is his true unplug from all stressors which is very important to him.
