    A North Texas resident since the mid-1970’s, I have enjoyed my career in the DFW real estate market for 33 years now. My passions are my family, real estate, and technology.

My son and business partner, Russell, and my daughter Terri, a fellow realtor, also fill my work life with joy. And we are blessed with six grandsons and two great grandsons.

    I am proud to say the DFW area has been my home for more than 30 years. My experience in the field in the home building industry is quite diverse. Over the past 45 years, I have been a certified home inspector, mastered a number of trades, and designed and built custom homes. When I joined my wife, Verna, and son, Russell, in 2002, this frontline experience brought a unique perspective and eye for quality to our business that complemented the team’s expertise in real estate. Working with my family to provide quality service to our clients is very fulfilling. Our lives are guided by traditional values: quality, integrity, and accountability. My spare time finds me fishing, be it competitively in tournaments or for fun and relaxing with my grandsons.

I have been professionally involved in Real Estate transactions since 2001 and I am blessed to be a 3rd generation family member on the Rhodes Team. It’s sometimes strange to be working with and referring to my mother as Terri and my grandmother as Verna but our professional standards would have it no other way. My beautiful wife Kendal and our children are active in our community through church, sports, and various organizations in the area. Life has been an adventure and God has given me many blessings.
