When introduced, I tell people I am a FULL TIME, PROFESSIONAL REALTOR®. Why do I specify Full Time, Professional? Because unlike many REALTORS® this is my full-time profession and single source of income. I emphasize PROFESSIONAL because I have been a REALTOR® for well over a decade in real estate and 35 plus years before in telecommunication and as a business owner.
Since starting my career in real estate, I have consistently been a Top Producer. After moving to Rockwall in 2013 The Welch Team was voted as the “New & Emerging Business of the Year in 2015” by the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce. In 2019 I was recognized in D Magazine as one of the top REALTORS® in all of Dallas.
Prior to real estate, as previously noted, I spent over 30 years in the corporate world of telecommunications. During that time, I successfully managed multi-million accounts, all of which demanded exceptional customer service. Professionalism and responsiveness are two of attributes I brought with me from that environment.
After acquiring my real estate licenses, I continue pursuing additional training. To date I have over 250 hours of post-license certified training. This helps me enhance my skills in special areas and allows me to better serve my clients and their unique needs. To date, I have achieved 10 designations and certifications (CRS, GRI, ALHS, I.R.E.S., TAHS, CDPE, SRES, TRLP, RCC, CNHS).
Coming from a telecommunication background, I have always sought to keep up with the latest technology. This, combined with the power of Ebby’s technology departments, allows me to provide my clients with state-of-the-art searches, property tracking and client follow-up.
Nicki, my wife of 47+ years and I moved to Rockwall all the way from the northwest tip of Plano in 2013 to be closer to our only daughter and son-in-law, but mainly our two grandkids – Brady 10 and Landry 8. Since moving to Rockwall, I have had the opportunity to go through the Citizens Police Academy, Citizens Fire Academy and Leadership Rockwall - Class of 2016. Currently I serve as Vice-Chair on Rockwall’s Planning and Zoning Commission, am an Ambassador for the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce, am on several local non-profit boards and am very active in our local church Life Group.
