Ray combines fun and professionalism in helping his clients achieve their real estate goals. Whether they are renting or buying, his natural feel for people and complete product knowledge of the inventory available enable him to give the best advice possible. He has earned his ABR, CRS, GRI, and also is an Associate Broker. Ray began his real estate career after 37 years of government service. He started with the National Park Service and served at parks throughout the United States. He then spent the rest of his career with Defense Agencies, doing multiple tours of the Middle East, including Iraq. When he was looking to shift gears, real estate seemed a natural transition. First, most of his family members are Realtors. Second, his customer service background and thirst for advanced education make him a great fit for our team. Ray sees as his mission finding you the right home or rental unit, and he won't quit until the mission is accomplished. He is an avid fan of Washington sports teams, and he and his wife Cindy enjoy checking out new local restaurants and going to the islands for an occasional long weekend.
