Growing up as a boy scout around Lake Texoma gave me the skills I need to help you pick your dream home. Due to enjoying the lake lifestyle I frequented Lake Texoma during college to camp out with family and friends.
My love for football took me to the University of Oklahoma where I was awarded a full scholarship and played on the Big 8 Championship team under Barry Switzer. I also played in the USFL as a wide receiver for Los Angeles Express in 1985 when we obtained the title of Pacific Coast Division Champions.
My involvement with boy scouts and football taught me to dream big and work hard to obtain my goals.
I am passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of others by helping them find their dream home.
I have lifelong in-depth knowledge of Lake Texoma. I am on the board of trustees and Director of the food pantry for my church. I am a guitarist with the Texoma Gospel Quartet singers who award scholarships to area youth annually.
As a professional real estate agent I was awarded the Certified Negotiation Expert for successful completion and formal training in the art of negotiation. My integrity, honesty and deep faith give me the heart of a team player that brings you superior knowledge and results during your buying and selling experience.
One should always consider how well an agent can negotiate on their behalf. It is always in your best interest to hire an agent specifically trained to handle the complexities involved in persuasion and negotiating.
With proven strategic marketing and negotiation managing techniques I can assure you the best pricing, terms, and conditions on your home.
I am a member of the National, State and Local Associations of Realtors.
Located on the Texas and Oklahoma border about an hour from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texoma (or Texomaland to locals) is situated on the Red River.
Created in the 1940s by the Army Corps of Engineers for flood control and hydro-electric power, Lake Texoma, the nation's 12th largest lake, covers 89,000 acres and roughly 580 miles of shoreline. Due to the close proximity to Dallas-Fort Worth, it draws more than 6 million visitors a year and is known as "the Playground of the Southwest".
Lake Texoma is known for its amazing recreational opportunities for home owners and the general public. There are more than two dozen marinas and plenty of public boat ramps on both the Oklahoma and Texas sides of the lake. Power boating, sailing, camping, water skiing, wind surfing, golfing, and visiting either of the wildlife refuges or state parks are also popular.
While it is known as the "Striper Capital of The World" for its ideal Striped Bass fishing, more than 70 species, including largemouth, white and spotted bass, black and white crappie, and channel, blue, and flathead catfish make for a great lake to fish.
Fobb Bottom, located on the Oklahoma side of the lake, draws a large crowd of college students during spring break and the Fourth of July holiday.
Lake Texoma hosts the Lakefest Regatta, a charity regatta that attracts up to 100 keelboats and more than 500 sailors each spring, and has raised more than $2 million dollars since it began.
Lake Texoma is home to 26 resorts, many restaurants and cafes, 56 parks, and a golf course community.
Whether you wish to enjoy skiing or boating, the best striped bass fishing around, or visiting a nature preserve, Lake Texoma has something for everyone.
