A little bit about me...
From my humble beginnings as a morning radio co-host with KIIK 104 and KUUL-FM in the 80s (Matt & McFadden In The Morning) - I switched careers in 1992 so that my wife and I could put down roots, raise a family and never have to do another remote broadcast from Home Depot again!
Today as the broker manager of the Ruhl&Ruhl Middle Road branch office I have two main responsibilities: 1) coach, support and advise the agents in my office to become the most successful and informed REALTORS® in the market, and 2) search for future REALTORS® - ethical and caring people who would like to join the Ruhl&Ruhl team of proactive, trusted real estate advisors, growing their own business.
A life-long resident of the Quad Cities, I have been very fortunate to be that trusted advisor for so many great clients over my 22 year career. In 2014, I moved to my current position as broker/manager of the Bettendorf branch, where I coach, support, and train over 75 high producing agents who serve the entire Quad Cities area and surrounding towns in both Iowa & Illinois. I don't list or sell homes these days so the agents who work in our office know I am their "partner" in success - not their competition like some other managing brokers often are.
I'm extremely proud of the terrific group of professionals who work well together in my office. It's an atmosphere of growth and support for one another. So, if you've ever considered a change of career to become a REALTOR®, I invite you to check us out. I would love to sit down with you and give you the details of this business and the level of support and tools that Ruhl&Ruhl provides our people. There's nothing more satisfying than being in charge of your destiny and the gratification that comes from giving legendary customer service to wonderful clients and friends.
