Do you do any volunteer work?
Over the years, I’ve volunteered with numerous organizations doing home-buyer workshops. Closer to home, I’ve served on a neighborhood board of directors, and as treasurer for a homeowners’ association. I’m also very involved with the Realtor® Political Action Committee (RPAC) at the local, state, and national level. And with NAR, I serve as a Federal Political Coordinator.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I like spending time with my wife, four adult daughters, and five grandchildren. I like staying fit, so I go to the gym pretty much every day. And I like shooting baskets, even though I’m older now and I can’t move as fast. And I did martial arts—Tae Kwon Do—for about 15 years before COVID shut it down. I really miss it and hope to return now that it’s open again. I love live music and dancing. My favorites for dancing are R&B, Reggae, and any kind of World Beat music, especially African.
Speaking of things international, where would you go if traveling abroad?
If I took an extended leave, I would probably go to Kenya because that’s my wife and youngest daughter’s home country. In a way, I’ve become part of the culture through marriage. But visiting would allow me to immerse myself and learn about it on a deeper level and meet more of our family.
