I’m just a geek in Realtor clothing. I’m an Associate Broker and Branch Manager for Thompson’s Realty in Tucson, AZ. But before that, I was a software engineer who worked in Quality Assurance, which means it was my job to find all the problems in the software before it got to our customers. I like science and technology and figuring out how things work. I like to take things apart and make new things. I’m a detail oriented perfectionist – I like things to be right, and I like them to work as well as they possibly can. I like to test them and make them better. And right now, I’m focusing those skills on the real estate industry.
