In his own words, “We really do believe that you are obliged to give to the communities where you do business. If you are to have any hopes of receiving anything, you first have to give and have a commitment to giving with no expectation of getting anything back. Honestly, (and I say this often) it’s God’s law, like the law of gravity. If you give there is no mystery; it comes back.
The Philadelphia born and raised Realtor earned a bachelor’s degree from Temple University. In 1975 he relocated to Houston and began his top salesman career with another company in 1980, gaining recognition at the same time as a real estate instructor at Champions School of Real Estate for 15 years, the University of Houston, Houston Community College and San Jacinto Community College.
