Aaron grew up in upstate New York, in the small town of Norwich, an hour and half south of Syracuse. As a child, Aaron had many interests, some typical of a young boy like, sports and animals and others a little more unusual. Aaron was an only child, raised by a single mom who loved to cook, a skill that Aaron picked up early and carried into his adult life. Another important person in Aaron's childhood, was his grandfather who served as a Town Supervisor for many years, exposing Aaron to the world of government and politics. Before he even entered middle school, Aaron was able to cook a mean French Toast, and was already set on being a politician when he grew up. In high school, Aaron was a member of the Rotary Club and worked on Presidential campaigns (his own and others). Aaron was a good student and managed to get accepted to American University in Washington, DC. As with many young men and women, Aaron changed gears and ultimately graduated with a BA degree in Theatre from the State University of New York at Fredonia, not far south of the Canadian border on Lake Erie.
After graduation, Aaron took a job in San Antonio, TX working on the national tour of Phantom of the Opera. After the tour moved on, Aaron began tending bar and quickly found his niche. In less than 6 months, Aaron was running a restaurant on the Riverwalk; he found himself managing restaurants for the better part of the next 15 years. After living in San Antonio, Tucson, AZ and Rapid City, SD, Aaron finally settled in Phoenix, where he was encouraged by his lovely wife to use his excellent customer service skills, ability to multi-task and desire to make a difference in people's lives, in the world of Real Estate. As any smart man does, Aaron took her advice and couldn't be happier.
Aaron and Yolanda live in New River, Az with their 6 boys, Jules, Caelan, Chandler, Alex, Masen and Will, where Aaron does much of the cooking-except in election years, when he often eats in front of the TV.
I hear a lot of agents today talk about the market in negative terms, "i remember when" or "I wish it was still". Perhaps it is because I got into real estate after the economic downturn, so I don't have the memories of sitting around waiting for the phone to ring, and living comfortably on 1 or 2 sales per month, but I don't look at today's market so begrudgingly. At any one time I am helping dozens of people realize their dreams, and the harder it is to put together and close the best deal possible, the better it feels to hand over their keys.
Many agents will say it is important to specialize in certain types or areas of real estate, I prefer to do it all, first time home owners, investors, veterans, seniors, families or singles; vacant land, single family homes, condos, multi-unit or horse property. You will never hear me say "I'm sorry, I don't do that" or "I don't go out there".
In short, no matter what you are in the market for, you may find an agent who has more years or deals under their belt, but you will not find one who is more willing to do what it takes to get you what you want and need.
