I grew up in the Wright County area and have resided in Goldfield with my wife, Julie for 47 years. We have raised three sons, all of whom graduated from Clarion-Goldfield Schools. I have been active in the community serving as a City Council Member for over 30 years, Goldfield Community Betterment, Goldfield Jaycees, Clarion Ruritans, Holmes Lutheran Church Trustee, and have been involved in many community projects. I have been a building contractor for 47 years, constructing new homes and remodels. My passion for construction led to purchasing properties for remodels which piqued my interest in real estate and I have now been licensed for 30 years. I am now retired from construction but I believe my background and reputation for being trustworthy, honest and reliable is a great advantage to my clients.
