Being a real estate professional with more than 15 years' experience and having sold real estate to people all over Texas has been an honor and a privilege. Although, I have sold properties all over Texas my specialty is in the Frio Canyon. I am an entrepreneur with the desire and passion to strive for excellence for my clients by serving them with integrity in order to make our community a better place for everyone.

After Graduating from Leakey High School in 1997, l moved to San Antonio in an attempt at City life. However, it did not take long to realize my roots were planted deep in the heart of the canyon. Shortly after, I obtained my real estate license and began my career as a real estate agent where I was raised. Furthermore, coming from a working-class family which consists of 6 brothers and sisters, I understand the core values of hard work, dedication and living within your means. Eventually, I married a hometown girl, Angelica Navarro, whose family also has deep roots in the canyon; we have made Leakey our Home now for almost 12 years. Currently, I am serving as Leakey city councilman, volunteer firefighter and as a member of St Raymond's Finance Council. This being said I realize the struggles and challenges our canyon faces. My ultimate goal is to tackle any such issues with dignity, quality, strong moral and respect in order to make the Frio Canyon one of the best places for not only current generations but for generations to come.

As I grew in my career, recognizing advancement in technology and the ever-changing ways of our world I decided to team up with Hill Country Properties Group using Exp Realty as our broker. Our company is conveniently located in the heart of Leakey and is able to service multiple areas of the Texas Hill Country. Therefore, it is our company's goal to provide our clients with the best available technology and support system this industry has to offer. Additionally, it is my personal goal to build a long-standing honest family relationship with my clients by giving you expert attention and providing professional representation each one deserves. I look forward to working with you so we may find exactly what you are looking for.

I am a Texan through and through and I know this because I have lived outside of TX for over 20 years. Texas is now home again and my family could not be more excited about being in the Hill Country, much less the Frio Canyon. The Frio River and the Hill Country is where we want to call home and hopefully we can share it together. It is a great place to raise a family and you can also enjoy, in my opinion, the prettiest places in Texas, right here.

After graduating from Uvalde High School in 1989, I began my college educational trek at Texas A&M University in College Station where I received a Bachelors of Science degree. Followed by a Masters of Science and Doctorate of Philosophy degree from Mississippi State University.

I then spent another 12 years working in Agriculture in the Mississippi Delta. The whole time while in Mississippi my wife and I had a true desire to be back in Texas. We have lived in the Hill Country since July ’11 and even more excited about my second career as a Proprietor & Realtor and to be working with the real estate professionals at Hill Country Properties Group.

My family and I own a resort on the Frio River, River Bluff Cabins. We are actively working to promote a resort above all the rest in our beautiful canyon, keep the Frio River clean and make sure we have a great place to live.

Our dream of meeting individuals and sharing God’s beauty with each of you is truly coming to fruition. With our family and dreams scattered all over this part of Texas, we welcome each of you to come enjoy it with us.

I will support and work with each of you like my family and ultimately treat you in an ethical, professional and knowledgeable manner that I hope will be paramount above everything else. I am sure that there is a piece of God’s country that is just right for you. So Please reach out, as I want to get to know and help each of you to find your dream as well.

A native of the Frio Canyon area, I have spent most of my childhood years in this area. As a young boy, I have explored many parts of this canyon and know about the beauty in this area that attracts many people here. As an agent here at Hill Country Properties Group give me the opportunity to help you find your piece of the beauty this area has to offer. From a vacation home, hunting acreage, river properties or making this area your permanent residence I can find what you are looking for.

After graduating from Leakey ISD in 1993, I moved to Lubbock and attended Texas Tech University and received a BBA in Marketing in 1997.  I had to put my degree to use, so I moved to San Antonio where I was employed by Alamo Iron Works until 2015. During the 18 years as an account manager for AIW, I worked in many parts of Texas and Mexico overseeing many projects and accounts. In 2003 I had the opportunity to work from Leakey and was very excited to move back home. I got married to my beautiful wife, Amanda and we have three wonderful children, Miranda, Austin, and Ainsley. For the last three years, I have owned a successful pest control and landscaping business.

As I grow my new career with the professionals at Hill Country Properties Group I am excited to help you with any of your real estate transactions. I can help you purchase or sell your property here in this canyon or any other area in Texas. I will work with you in a knowledgeable, professional and ethical way to make your real estate transaction as easy and pleasant as possible. Our team has many years of real estate experience, knows the market and are very familiar with all parts of the Frio Canyon, so if you’re a buyer or seller give us the opportunity to fulfill your needs.

Born and raised in Texas, it didn’t take me long to figure out that this great state is the place to be.

I grew up in a small town near Fredericksburg, known as Hye, Texas, 3 miles from the birthplace and childhood home of our 36th president Lyndon B. Johnson. LBJ graduated from Johnson City High school in 1924, and I followed his footsteps 90 years later, in the class of 2014. 

I tried my hand at a few things after High school, not exactly sure what to do with myself. While I pondered which path in life I’d like to take, I decided to do something positive with my extra time and joined up with the local volunteer fire department. It was around then I found myself a job at William & Chris winery, where I developed an interest in wine. Although I loved working as a cellar rat and learning the ropes of wine making, I decided this was not for me. 

Having grown up in the Texas Hill Country, This land is a part of my life. I grew up surrounded by the rolling hills and beautiful Texas rivers. Over the years I realized the Frio was the place for me, and moved out here with my family to our own little slice of heaven. Realizing my passion for helping people find that perfect home or property for them, I decided the Frio Canyon was the perfect place for me to grow my real estate career as well as help each of you find that corner of the world we’ve all been searching for, and only few of us have truly found.

It is my ultimate goal to build an honest family relationship with each one of my clients and to provide un-paralleled representation for each of you as we search for that perfect place to call home.

I am a native Texan born and raised in the Texas Hill Country town of Boerne. I graduated from Boerne High School in 1981. Upon graduation I attended Texas A&M for two years. Not really knowing what to do with myself I left A&M and did a stint in the United States Coast Guard. I was stationed in Miami Florida on a 95’ Patrol boat assigned to drug interdiction and search and rescue. At this time I also participated in the invasion of Grenada and was stationed there as part of the peacekeeping force. I then returned to Station Port Aransas, Texas. After my tour i returned to college at Texas A&I University in Kingsville where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Education.

My wife Linette and I traveled across Arizona, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas with my job as a Luby’s Cafeteria manager. Both of our children Bailey – 28, and Wyatt – 24, were born during this time. After 10 years our hearts pulled us back to the Hill Country and our hometown of Boerne. I then became a supervisor for Southwest Airlines where I spent the next 19 years. When I retired in 2019 we had the opportunity to relocate to the Concan / Leakey area. We jumped at the chance and now own some rentals on the Frio known as El Zocalo. The beauty and tranquility of the area is unparalleled. 

This is one of the reasons I have started my second career in real estate with the professionals at the Hill Country Properties Group. My goal is to provide unparalleled service to you. Whether you are looking to relocate, or own a small piece of the Frio paradise, I can help achieve your dreams. Be it a small cabin on the Frio, or a large ranch in the hills, we can find what you are looking for.

Reach out to me and let me help you find your little piece of paradise that is just right for you. I look forward to meeting, and working with you.
