“I have known Don on three levels over the past 20 or more years: a fellow Real Estate Agent, secondly when he was the Broker/Owner of a Real Estate Company and I was an Agent, and thirdly as a friend, perhaps the most important!  On all three levels, I found him to be personable, and loyal. He’s a person of high integrity and high standards. Don is one of the most creative/innovative, ‘outside the box" thinkers, I have ever encountered!  He is a great teacher, and I have always been awed by his broad spectrum of knowledge!  Most of all, he practices what he preaches/teaches.  A great guy to have on your side!”  Terry Dwyer, Real Estate Broker/Business Owner, Retired

To that end he has authored a number of books and is involved with small groups focused on real estate investing as well as personal development like improving ones presentation skills for example. Having a conversation with Don will make one feel better about life regardless of the topic or situation.” Marvin Kau, VP of Brokerage / Principal Broker, Bluestone & Hockley Real Estate Services
