I grew up with a real estate company in my house since 1972 since my dad owned a real estate company from the early 70's. I started a successful business that fully paid my way through college. I took the 8 year college plan and skied on the US Ski Team (Nordic). And I was your general active athletic child and boy scout. Life is good!
