Client first. I love to create a strategy to meet or exceed the goals of my clients. Also, I appreciate all the resources at Hiffman to bring to my clients.
I am just a “blue collar” guy working in a corporate environment. I was taught to work hard, be honest and strive to always be better. At the age of three, my mother taught me the multiplication table and knew I was destined to go to college. It was my parents who developed my path to adulthood. To be honest, I owe my career and my success to my parents. I love most sports and played baseball, hockey, tennis, racquetball, etc. Also, I learned to ski in Montana on a real estate trip sponsored by Hamilton Partners. Currently, I have two passions. One is to travel. My career in commercial real estate has allowed me to travel throughout Europe, North America, Central America, Asia and the Caribbean. My other passion is to give back to the community. I was on the boards of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of DuPage, San Miguel Charter School and Sertoma. I do not have one true hobby, but I love to ride my bike along Lake Michigan, go to the theater, live concerts, ballroom dancing, attend sporting events, go skiing, golfing, and explore the world. I am fortunate to have my 96-year-old dad, 95-year-old mom and a loving, magical brother. My brother is a professional magician and through him, I had the opportunity to meet Bob Hope, English Lord, work with David Cooperfield, and almost become an Entertainment Producer. Life is great!
