Trusted Commercial Real Estate Consultant
Specializing in Commercial Investment Properties throughout the world, and finding cost-effective footprints for those manufacturers, factories, and businesses, wanting to relocate right here in West Virginia. We are so much more than just, "Wild & Wonderful." Hoping those "Country Roads" bring you to West Virginia.
I'm a Marine Veteran, Retired Charleston Police Lieutenant, Author of two books, Inventor with two US Patents, and Former Homeland Response Force Planner. So what in the heck does this have to do with real estate? For over 30 years, I've put my time in serving others. Naturally with my background, hard work was not a problem. However, in this industry, hard work can only get you so far. Industry knowledge is key in this business, and being able to provide all necessary information to a client for them to make a well informed decision.
Experience You Can Trust
Investment Property Acquisition
I have access to over 50 Billion in off-market high profile investment properties. Most of these properties are located in LA, NY, Las Vegas, Chicago, and Miami. I personally have 40 million of investment assets available in West Virginia. Most are above 8% CAP Properties in 5-6% CAP Markets.

West Virginia Opportunities
I would love to have the opportunity to market your asset and get the deal done for you and yours. I will knock on the doors of the Blackstones and QIC's of the industry to create a win for all involved. As an agent of Berkshire Hathaway, I have access to a network of 52,000 agents around the globe. Last month, I was recognized as a Chairman's Gold Circle Member. This award is only given to the top 2%.
I believe WV is at the end of a down cycle and entering into an absorption cycle. There are some local investors who realize it, however it has been mostly out of State clientele who are really coming in and harvesting this low hanging fruit. Identifying the who, is key to creating a few key destination pieces on these available footprints. I will make myself available to anyone wanting to come in and see some of our opportunities. I will also make introductions to key personnel and offices in moving forward within this State. To a business, WV Development Office is one of the most important. With historically low interest rates coupled with WV Opportunity Zones, now is a great time for acquisitions and investments. https://westvirginia.gov/
