As a native and lifelong resident of Northeast Tennessee, I take special pride in helping to build relationships in our community. There is no better place to live, work and play. At the heart of it all is the real estate business — connecting people and their dreams, shaping career goals, making good things happen. I’m pleased to be part of the Signature Properties team. I have a background in sports journalism, with a communications/political science degree from East Tennessee State University, and am the author of the ongoing Billy Beckett series of suspense novels. I enjoy traveling and playing music with friends in my spare time. My wife, Jo Ann, operates Studio Dance in Johnson City, and we have two grown children and a miniature goldendoodle that tests us more than either of the kids ever did.
