teams. As co-owner of a car wash, he has enjoyed this venture, which is

believe when choosing a career, choose one that you enjoy, then it is a
pleasure to go to work every day. I have been lucky in the careers that
I have chosen and my association with Peck Realty. I have been active in
the development and sales of condominiums, which I feel is a benefit to
my customers. Having a sense of humor is one of the most important assets
a person can have."
