What do you enjoy most about living in the North State? Reno claims to be the biggest little city in the world. I believe Redding is. I know it has been said before, but you will not find more generous people anywhere. We constantly see so many give time, resources and energy, some who don’t even have any left to give. It makes me proud to live here.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of your job? Real estate transactions are major life events, especially when it’s someone’s family home, first home, their nest egg or other major event. Countless random things can go wrong in a real estate transaction, and some are much tougher than others. It’s very rewarding when you can help people with those milestones.

What’s a funny encounter you’ve had on the job? In my first few months as a Realtor, my father Bruce sold a house to a doctor from the Midwest. He was arriving a couple of weeks early, so we arranged a furnished rental for him and his family. When my dad was out of town, a large family of skunks nested underneath the rental. I just remember thinking, “This was not in the book.” We ended up having to put the family up at a hotel.

If you could time travel to any period in history, where would you go and why?
I would love to try and find Atlantis. But that might be tough to pinpoint.

How did you become interested in being an Asphalt Cowboy? I always enjoyed Rodeo Week as a kid. I loved the Rodeo Parade, Pancake Breakfast and the Quick Draw Contest. My absolute favorite part was trying to find the loot and unmask the Lone Stranger and Sidekick from the mock hold-up. Every year I took it very seriously and never did win either prize. I knew the Asphalt Cowboys gave back to the community, but I didn’t have any idea how much until I joined. It is an honor to be among such a great group of individuals, who work unbelievably hard all year.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done? Immediately after graduating Shasta High School, my cousin J.T. Kennedy took me out for a bite to eat and convinced me to go work with him at a salmon cannery in South Naknek, Alaska. I spent that summer in a very isolated place working extremely long hours. I enjoyed the experience, and went back for four more seasons. But looking back on it, I should have thought about it for more than an hour.
