Executive Managing Director
Richmond - Valuation
My career started with USDA in 1976. I started appraising farms & houses in 1977 along with my other lender duties. At age 25, I was made a manager of an office with 8-10 people under me. During that time, I developed management skills along with learning real estate finance & valuation. In 1985, I went to night school working on my MBA. During this period of time, I left USDA & became the Multifamily/Nursing Home Appraiser for HUD in the Richmond Field Office. I finished my MBA in 1988 & left the Federal Government. Since then, I have developed LIHTC Apartments, owned managed, and sold them. In 1990, I started a real estate appraisal company with my wife. It became the largest independently owned real estate appraisal company in Virginia. Subsequently, I broke the company into two firms; Residential & Commercial. I sold the Commercial company to Colliers International in October, 2014. At that time, we were doing about $2.0 million a year in gross revenue.
