I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting this web site in 2005 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes and “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that my blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Va Beach Va, after college, I worked at a number of positions including mgr of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco.
I married a floral manager, Ellen, whom I’d met in the flower business, and we were both working 60 to 80 hours a week for the same company — more on holidays. Our kids were tiny at the time, and my father, a retired teacher living in Virginia Beach, was in poor health.
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify and put family first.
So we moved from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and Ellen became a fitness trainer who also runs ultra marathons “for fun.” In her spare time, she is the cross-country coach at Lafayette and directs a county-affiliated track team for young people. (Team Flash)
Everything in my life has come together beautifully. Ellen and I work ten buildings away from each other in New Town. Our sons Zach and Josh are both at Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
We feel like we’re living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time i close a deal and I see a smile on someone’s face.
