New Agent for New Mexico
I Graduated from Las Cruces High School in 1977 and graduated from ENMU on May 10, 1991 with a degree in Accounting. I was raised in various parts of NM from Tucumcari, Cuba, Santa Fe, Portales and Las Cruces. I grew up in a ranching and farming family setting. My grandparents owned a ranch West of Roswell until my grandmother’s death in 2000. I ranched in the Quay Valley for 10 years. In 1996, I moved my family closer to town and closer to the Farm Credit office.
My wife and I reside in Placitas, NM. I am married and have two grown children and two grandchildren. I enjoy my time with my family the most. I also enjoy hunting, fishing and working (believe it or not).
I enjoy being involved in the community. In the past I have been involved with Associates of Commerce and Industry, NM Junior Livestock Foundation, New Mexico Ag Leadership and the Presbyterian Hospital board serving on the finance committee. I also served as a board member on the Quay county fair and volunteered for the Elks bingo and gaming committee, Tucumcari Economic Development Committee and the Mesa Tech Rodeo Board/advisory committee.
I worked for Farm Credit of New Mexico for 25 years starting in 1991. I began my career with Farm Credit in the Tucumcari office as a loan officer and took over management in 1999. I transferred to Albuquerque in 2000 and became Branch Manager of the Albuquerque/Tucumcari offices in 2004. My primary goal was to provide agriculture-related financing to the northern half of New Mexico. Over the course of my career, I established long-term relationships with customers throughout the United States including Hawaii.
My personal goals include making the dreams of others come true. I like working with people to fulfill their dreams such as first time buyers, expansion of existing agricultural operations and bringing their children back into their family business. I like working with new and existing customers in acquiring property or helping them sell their property. I like the challenges in marketing and building relationships with new or existing customers. The personal reward of making and landing the ‘big deals’ is motivating and inspires me to set higher goals. It’s personally rewarding to see all customers reach their goals.
I have had the opportunity to work with many brokers, title companies and attorney’s over the past 25 years. The single largest real estate broker I have been fortunate to work with is Chas. S. Middleton and Son. We have formed a working relationship that has played a large part in my successful career. I have been given the opportunity to continue to work with Chas. S. Middleton and Son, which will allow me to continue to work with people looking to buy or sell agriculture property. I will bring with me my business and personal relationships, knowledge of financing, thorough understanding of ranching and farming and familiarity of the many ranches in New Mexico.
I look forward to this new chapter of my life and will continue to work with long-time customers and establish new relationships. This is a great time to be involved in the agricultural industry in and around New Mexico. The opportunities available to buyers and sellers is unlike anywhere else in the U.S. and I’m excited to be a part of it.
