Ron is a 15+ year veteran Real Estate agent and native of Bruceton Mills in Preston county, West Virginia. He has been a letter carrier in Morgantown for 20+ years, an experience which has been invaluable in Real Estate because of the vast knowledge of Morgantown and the benefits of living in such a great city.

Ron enjoys all aspects of the Real Estate profession; helping the first-time homebuyer through an anxious but rewarding process, walking the boundaries of a 50 acre farm that a buyer has dreamed of retiring to or working with a seller to develop a plan of action to get their home prepared, priced and marketed for a quick sale.

Ron has listed and sold property throughout North Central West Virginia and enjoys the challenges each property, no matter what price or location, brings to the table. Ron believes the greatest reward this profession offers is to go to the closing table and shake the hand of a smiling and satisfied client.
