My greatest love and blessing in life is my family. My wife and daughters motivate me every day to be the best man, friend, husband, father and businessman I can be! To that end, I live by a philosophy of always trying to “do the right thing” with whatever I do in any circumstance I find myself in; whether it be personal or business. With this guiding principal in life, I find that great things happen!
As far as business goes, I have a great passion for commercial real estate development. I understand there are great opportunities in strong or weak economic market conditions. My goal in life is to seek out these opportunities and treat every project or situation as if it is my last. In so doing, I pour my heart and soul into my “work” as I incorporate my vision along with 20 + years of experience and knowledge of commercial real estate to help MAJ Development grow and prosper as a company. This somewhat contrarian approach to be developing in the toughest of times has enabled me to have a huge sense of pride in helping to shape our community into a better place to live and work.
To my family, friends, employees, vendors, and clients, I look forward to many more years of happiness and success while we grow relationships and make our community a better place for future generations!
