More About Me

Welcome!

Here’s my story…I was born and raised in the Cincinnati area by two loving parents, stayed in town and studied Architecture at the University of Cincinnati. I met my fantastic wife Elizabeth in 1981 and worked in the Engineering Department of a local manufacturing company where I later became the Operations Manager. We raised three beautiful daughters (Katie, Jacqueline and Nicole). In 1997 I made a career change into Real Estate and chose to work with Sibcy Cline Realtors (the top area Broker). That year, I was named “Rookie of the Year” for the entire Company (over 1,200 Agents). Since then I’ve reached “Platinum” sales volume (Sibcy Cline’s highest level) for 20 consecutive years as well as being a Company “East Region Sales Leader”. During this process, my three daughter’s joined Elizabeth and I to form the “Waits Team”. They are all extremely instrumental in the success of our group! In addition to spending time with Elizabeth, our daughters, their husbands/boy friends, our parents, other family/friends… we now have four incredible Grandsons to enjoy!!
