After high school, he moved to sunny San Diego and spent four years in the US Navy as a Corpsman (medic). Tom then moved to Corpus Christi where he spent five years in the Gulf of Mexico as an oil field hard hat commercial diver. In 1998 he moved to Austin and made his final career change to become a Realtor® in 1999.
Tom has a beautiful wife and four great children who all keep him busy and on his toes. Through carving his spare time in his fast-paced life, he enjoys restoring classic cars and training for marathons and triathlons.
While the process of buying and selling may generally be the same each time, the path to successfully meeting a client’s needs and expectations are usually quite different.
