He is the frontline sales person for Elite’s E&O program for home inspectors and has played a significant role in growing their business since he came on board. His core business principles revolve around outstanding service, vast industry knowledge, integrity, and being an honest, straight shooter with his clientele to gain their trust and cultivate long-term relationships.
