I am a Rogers county native and went to Chelsea Schools from Kindergarten through graduation. I met my wife on April 20th, 2003 and we were married June 4th, 2005. We have four children and we live on 140 acres east of Chelsea, OK. We homeschool our children and volunteer at our local church, where I met my wife, and in our local community.
I have been a Realtor since 2002, A broker since 2008 and in 2009 I started Solid Rock Realtors.
Since then we’ve grown to 8 locations serving NE Oklahoma. Tulsa, Claremore, Broken Arrow, Owasso, Oologah, Pryor, Vinita and Miami. We have just under 200 Realtors.
We’ve had an average growth rate of over 30% per year over the last ten years and have become one of the largest brokerages in NE Oklahoma, and the third largest independent brokerage in the area.
In 2020 I started a title company called Clear Title and Closings, we now have four locations / counties that we service. Broken Arrow, Pryor, Claremore and Vinita.
In 2021 I purchased an existing retail flooring store called Sooner Carpets. We rebranded and named it Sooner Flooring and Design, keeping the “Sooner” name since it had been a local staple for flooring since 1983. We have more than doubled the sales volume that it had previously and went from one installation crew to four different crews. We’ve been able to blend our flooring services and products to real estate transactions and have built a tremendous referral network through our Realtors.
Seeing the potential need and another potential for vertical integration, I started Petra Insurance Company LLC in 2023. I am a producer, and have another part time producer and then our office manager, which is a full time producer. We are located in Broken Arrow and I have also leased a location in Owasso, that had been a previous non-captive insurance office since 2007.
I have served on the following boards and committees.
Greater Tulsa Association of Realtors – Director (4 years)
GTAR Treasurer (1 Year)
MLS Technology Inc. – Director (4 years)
MLS Tech Treasurer (1 Year)
Data Systems Chair (2 Years)
Forms & Contracts Committee (Multiple Years)

Served on the CEO Search Committee for MLS Tech. (Two Separate Occasions)
Served on the MLS Committee for the NE Oklahoma Board of Realtors (9 Years)
Directly aided and brokered a Keybox Co-op for MLS Tech and NEOBR (Took 7 years to obtain)
