I started coming to Lake Royale from Northern Virginia in the mid 1980’s to visit friends at their section 14 camping lot. Then while stationed at Camp LeJeune it was easier to visit and decide to make NC home with my loving wife Anna.
During the 20 years I have lived at Lake Royale, I have worked as an accountant for several area corporations over the years such as Triangle Rent a Car, Jesse Jones, Georgia Pacific and even Lake Royale.
I have also earned certifications in property management, CMCA and AMS as well as earning my NC Real Estate Brokers License. Currently I manage the Woodcroft Community Association in Durham while working weekends at Pineridge Realty and Development.
