Originally from the Metro Detroit area, and a son of small business owners, Jerry is an alumni of Michigan State University with an entrepreneurial nature. It was while working in corporate business after college, when Jerry’s interest in the field of real estate began. He purchased his first personal home as a pre-foreclosure, and acquired his Real Estate Broker's license, Real Estate Appraiser's license, and Mortgage Broker's license in the state of Georgia. Jerry’s interest grew as he jumped at the opportunity to invest in real estate with funding from private investors. With the multi-unit rental property, Jerry quickly learned the ropes as a landlord, further building his expansive real estate knowledge and was later selected by the Columbia County, Georgia Chamber of Commerce to speak on the topic of real estate development during a sister-city delegation visit to Nowy Sacz, Poland.
In his over 30 years of work as a dedicated and knowledgeable Realtor®, Jerry has, and continues to, assist clients, ranging from first-time home buyers to retirees, in achieving their real estate goals. Jerry’s broad range of real estate expertise includes the areas of rehabilitation and investment, leasing with the option to purchase, owner financing, 1031 tax deferred property exchanges, and property management. He has managed large scale real estate investment portfolios, ranging from 50 single family homes to upwards of 300. Passionate about sharing his knowledge, Jerry has served as a continuing education instructor, with a curriculum focus on financing, to Washington State Realtors®.
In his personal time, Jerry is a competitive athlete, passionate in both crew and running. He’s served as a volunteer rowing coach and was selected to represent the United States Rowing Association as a referee at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia and has also completed several marathons, including the Boston Marathon. Jerry continues to row, training with Sarasota Crew for the U. S. Masters Nationals.
