Having been raised in Maine and enjoying just about everything in nature that can be offered I thought I would be in Maine forever. My plan was to start a business and retire by 30!
I graduated college as a member of the National Honor Society with my Accounting Degree. My minor in Computer Sciences would have required another couple months and that would have slowed me down so off I went.
My first business was an office machine dealership that I owned and operated for about 17 years. In its peak, I employed 53 fellow Mainers. My largest client was the State of Maine government and my smallest any Nintendo game user!
For about 3 years after I sold the company I dealt in sports memorabilia and created a website to market the rare items I acquired but soon that become boring to me as I ending up being nothing more than an order taker.
In 1997 after my lovely wife and I returned from our honeymoon I decided to obtain my Real Estate license and beginning with my first year being named Rookie of The Year by Maine’s largest independent company, until today, I have maintained a top tier agent having won many awards both monthly and yearly.
I have made many new friends along the way and have enjoyed the facial expressions of joy and excitement on those I have helped to sell or acquire a home or business as we sit at the closing table together. Almost 900 times now.
But as I look beyond my 21+ year career as a 45+ per year transaction agent to something more beneficial to my family long term, I decided to finally open my own brokerage and make sure that my wife Angie and son Kyle could ease into the business and have careers for themselves.
Cre8tive Realty Inc., will now continue my journey as a business owner of one kind or another that started way back in 1980 to continue now and into the future.
