Roy knows what it means to strive to do your very best. A lifelong resident of St. Louis, his winning personality made him a popular student both off and on the football field. The grandson of a pastor, Roy eventually found himself drawn to the ministry. While attending ITT Technical Institute, his dedication to his faith kept him involved in everything from nursing home visits to youth groups.
Eventually Roy's career path found new direction. Working in commercial construction for over fifteen years as an Electrical Contract Account Manager and Low Voltage Systems Designer, Roy proved that his "can do" attitude and loyalty to his customers would continue to bring him success. But over time, Roy started to believe that perhaps he was ready to make a change.
An avid and competitive cyclist, Roy found himself continuously running into Grant Hickman, owner of GHREA, who felt that Roy would be an excellent real estate advisor. A couple of years and many discussions later, Roy decided to make the move to join Grant's team.
"I didn't take becoming an advisor lightly. With a wife and three children, I recognized that my career decisions impacted my entire family. But my wife and I felt that this was the right move for us. I felt that my commitment for professional excellence, along with my faith, gave me the courage to make the move. I am happy to say that it has proven to be a great choice for us."
Roy's experience with construction along with his knowledge of contractual language has made him a highly skilled professional. As in earlier years, his passion for seniors in our community continues. He now finds a great deal of enjoyment helping those seniors in the process of selling, buying or building their homes. But Roy's professionalism and knowledge are not his only assets. A victim of the 1993 flood, he understands, on a very personal level, the emotions and financial aspects associated with home owning. Roy's combination of knowledge and compassion has made him a first-rate advisor with a well rounded understanding of those families that he works to serve.
