I have called North Carolina home for over 20 years and absolutely love the Triangle area. My family moved to Southern Wake County just outside of Cary while I was in high school. I graduated from Athens Drive High in 1998 and graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Education Degree from North Carolina State University in 2004. During my Senior year of college, I received my real estate Salespersons license and began working as an assistant to my mother, Melissa Schambs. Following graduation, I earned my Brokers license and became involved in real estate full-time and have loved every minute of it since!
My wife, Amanda, and I live in Southern Wake county with our two children. Before becoming involved in real estate, I worked in a racing engine shop. Being around so many race cars and engines fostered a passion in me for all things automotive. If I am not working in the office or spending time with the family, I can most likely be found in the garage working on various car projects. We also like to take the kids camping, go the mountains and the beach, see new places, and try new foods. North Carolina is a wonderful place for us to call home. We love living in the Triangle and enjoy all the culture and experiences it has to offer.
My property management business started very simply; I sold homes to investors that were not happy with the existing property management services they were receiving and they asked me if I could help. I initially took on four properties and the business grew rapidly from there. With much dedication to my clients and with many blessings, we now manage over 250 properties throughout the greater Triangle area. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions. I look forward to showing you how my company can competently and professionally manage your very important investment.
