Born and raised in Kampala, Uganda, I’m married and we have three children. My kids are the joy of my life, and this is why am excited to work in real estate. Because, for one, it gives me joy to take care of people who dare to dream to become homeowners or investors. Two, because, it’s an industry that gives me freedom to not just be my own boss, but to choose how much I can make, and when and how I do that. I am very excited for an opportunity to represent people like yourself and/or your family, to help you in achieving your American dream. Whether that means buying your first home, upgrading to a bigger house, downgrading, or simply starting real estate investments. As you already know, my past experience is in serving people from all walks of life. Now, I would love to walk alongside you and/or your family to prepare you in attaining your future dreams.
