TJ was born in upstate New York, but as the saying goes, got to Austin as fast as he could, when he was 8 years old. He has lived here ever since, except for one year spent living in the Netherlands on a study abroad program. TJ Graduated from the University of Texas with a major in German. Armed with his liberal arts degree, and wanting to stay in Austin, he sought out opportunities in the IT industry and eventually settled in at IBM doing software support and training for 11 1/2 years. He then spent nearly 4 years working as a trainer in solar electric systems design and installation for a small Austin based training company.
His interest in real estate started when he and his wife bought their first home, a duplex, which they still own and lease. He looks forward to helping you with all your real estate needs, whether leasing, selling, or finding just the right place to rent or buy. TJ is willing to put in the work to find you a great place to live or to help sell or lease your home. He has experience as both a real estate agent and property manager so you can be sure he will find you a great deal! As a member of the Habitat Hunters team, TJ has a GRI (Graduate REALTORS® Institute) certification.
He lives in Austin with his wife, Jean. In his spare time, he enjoys attending Longhorn Basketball games, playing poker, boating on area lakes, playing with his dogs and occasionally hacking his way around the golf course.
