What was your first job in the realty industry?
I was an associate at Vistas International where I was named top producer my first year.

What is your favorite free-time activity?
In my free time, you can find me above the Miami skyline flying ultra-light planes.

How did you learn the business?
I began by making investments of my own. When I saw the positive results I decided to dedicate more time to the business and make a career out of it.

What was a challenging time for you, and how did you triumph?
I would say the most challenging time for me was the transition from professional racing to the real estate industry. After 15 years of competitive racing, I realized I had to dedicate myself fully to real estate in order to learn and profit from the business. Only then was I able to succeed.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients?
I do a lot of networking at open track days in Homestead, Moroso Motorsports Park and Daytona. There I meet potential new clients and valuable contacts while at the same time keeping myself involved in the racing circuit. Some people network on the golf course, I build relationships at the race track.
