I have been a resident of Athens, Georgia since 1971 (Can I now be called a Southerner?). I have been married to Robin Chasman for 35 years and have two children, Becky and Jeff, both of whom are married and have blessed us with 4 grandchildren, Ben, Davis, Allison and Maddox. I hold a B.S. in Education from Ohio University.
EXPERIENCE IS PRICELESS! Real Estate has been my passion for 28 years. I live for that moment when I see that twinkle in a buyers eye that indicates they just discovered “this is our dream home”! I savor those moments when I can tell a seller that “you have just sold your home”! Give me the pleasure of being there for your special moment. Call me at 706-540-6720 and let’s get started.
