I have always been outdoor oriented and gravitate to opportunities where I can work with people. I became a golf enthusiast during my high school years in Lebanon, PA. I played on the golf team at the University of Richmond and was team captain my senior year. On graduating from college I moved to Hobe Sound, FL to work in the golf business as a teaching and playing professional. After dedicating almost 10 years to the game of golf, I decided the time was perfect to reinvent myself in a new career and a new part of the country.
Tori Long and I have been lifelong friends. We grew up in the same hometown and our families have always been very close. We took family ski vacations together when we were younger and Tori has been a long time golfing buddy. Through her love and fascination for all things Tahoe, I became captivated by the attractions of living in Tahoe, where I could have the best of both worlds – golf in the summer and skiing in the winter.
It was with Tori’s encouragement that I came west to join the Carr Long team. I joined Carr Long in 2011 as the Director of Business Development, which was a perfect fit for my education background in business and finance. I quickly realized I wanted to get back on the front line and work with people again, so I pursued my real estate license and became licensed. I really enjoy working with and meeting new people, and being a part of Carr Long has afforded every opportunity to do just that. Don and Tori help make doing what we do fun and exciting. Their committed work ethic is admirable and contagious, and their unwavering dedication to the needs and well-being of clients makes them ideal mentors.
Best of all, Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. When I’m not playing golf or enjoying the ski slopes, I enjoy taking in some of the many community happenings in the Truckee-Tahoe area. Truckee Thursdays, Concerts in the Park, the weekly Farmers Market, or taking a drive to one of the many area attractions, I’m constantly discovering all that living in this wonderful mountain environment can offer.
