I’m an Air Force veteran and a highly experienced Realtor in the Las Vegas market area. I pride myself on helping new clients research and understand the real estate market in Las Vegas and find that perfect family or investment home or home site.
When you’re ready to move to the Las Vegas area and find a new home, or a second home or even an investment property, I can guide you through your evaluation and buying process.
After graduating from the School of Business at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and getting married, I joined the Air Force. For the next 10 years, I had exciting assignments as an officer and pilot, including tours in F-4’s (with a visit to the Vietnam conflict), O-2’s and F-15’s. During this time, I also earned a Master’s Degree from Troy University in Business Management. I was also transferred dozens of times, so I thoroughly understand the relocation process.
Through the years, I’ve bought and sold numerous homes and also currently own investment properties in Las Vegas. My Real Estate career began in 1980 when I got my first broker’s license in North Carolina. Over the next 35 years, I’ve held real estate licenses in South Carolina, Florida, Arkansas, Colorado, and now in Nevada. I first worked in the resort industry and managed properties from 180 acres to 22,000 acres with large sales organizations as well as property management and hotel assets, including golf courses to manage. We had large land tracts selling individual home sites and commercial lots along with homes and condominiums.
After moving to Las Vegas in 1996, I became an expert consultant to developers planning large Planned Unit Developments and resorts throughout the world. I was intimately involved in the early development of the condo hotel industry and served as a consultant in the last generation of this unique real estate product.
Since joining the Tonnesen Team, I’ve helped clients find their first home, a retirement home or to acquire a second home vacation residence in Las Vegas. My variety of experience has prepared me to assist clients with whatever they are looking for as their lifestyle changes. I’ve also helped many clients find that personally satisfying luxury residence, whether as a permanent home or second home for a great getaway.
I’m fortunate that our two sons and their families also live in Las Vegas, so we get to enjoy all the activities of our eight grandchildren. Now that most of them are in Clark County schools, I’m also familiar with any issues that impact families with children.
Let me be your personal real estate consultant to find the home that is right for you, no matter your stage in life.
