About Me
I am 71 years young and love life. I am also a work-a-holic. Selling has always been my profession and farming my dream.

Today I do both. I have a knack for seeing the potential in an undeveloped property.

I came to Belize in 1995 after my children got out of college. We moved from the Houston area where we had a printing company and a Xerox dealership.

My wife and I own Tropic Real Estate, Hot Mama’s pepper sauce company and Hams Barbecue here in Belize. We do some charity work for self-satisfaction. I have been in Rotary for 37 years and on the board of many charitable organizations. Whether you like it or not I will tell you the truth. I like to ask a lot of questions about what you want so I can find the right property.

We provide all real estate services and have many years’ experience. We know the attorneys to use, the surveyors and the document people.
