Chestatee Brokers Realty

I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Tampa until I moved to Gainesville, Georgia in 1975. Since that year I have called the Gainesville area my home. Lake Lanier provides my family and me many outdoor activities, which we take full advantage of everything it has to offer.

We love the lifestyle where we work, play and dine. I love spending as much time as possible on the lake with my wife, Marcela, of 28 years and our 2 daughters: Natalie (18) and Briana (14).

 My hobbies include water skiing, gardening, and weight training. My father owned and operated his own business, and I worked very closely with him throughout my life. During this time my father instilled in me the burning desire to control my own destiny. He was a huge fan of “the art of the sale”. I was hooked on the self-help books of that time such as Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, and many others. I became a student, then an expert on the “ABC's” of selling.  All the greats teach one “golden rule” …excellent customer service!

I started my Real Estate career in 1999 and by the year 2003, I had opened my own Real Estate Firm. I have been the Managing Broker and CEO of Chestatee Brokers Realty since 2007.
