Things you may not know about me–even if we’ve been friends for many years.
I share my name with Harry Houdini, ther Hungarian born magician, whose birth name was Erik Weisz.
My childhood nickname? Hank
Had I been born exactly one year later to the day, I would have been a “leap baby” and would only have celebrated 24 birthdays so far.
My first airplane ride, at the age of 18, was 11,933 miles with a routing of Dayton/Chicago/SanFrancisco/Vancouver/Honolulu/Fiji/Sydney/Melbourne, all over a span of 36 hours.
Sports? Boston Red Sox. Yes, I was there at Yankee Stadium for Game 6 (Schilling and the bloody sock) & & of the ’04 ALCS. The World Series win (after an 86 year drought) broke “the curse of the bambino.”
I’ve been in every state in the union, except Alaska. An Alaskan cruise is on my bucket list.
Most memorable meal? Dinner at Buckingham Palace, hosted by HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and HRH Sophie, Countess of Wessex in 2008, at the invitation of my good friends Sam and Mary Donnelly Haskell.
I have visited nearly 100 of Frank Lloyd Wright‘s buildings, and continue as much as possible to stand in that “sacred space” when travel permits. Recent buildings I’ve seen include The Rosenbaum House in Florence, Alabama and Samara in West Lafayette, Indiana.
One of my personal goals for 2019 is to bicycle the Natchez Trace Parkway (444 miles) in 7 days (or less).
Memorable concerts: Bruce Springsteen “Born in the USA” Cotton Bowl, Dallas 1985 • Tina Turner “Wildest Dreams” Starwood Amphitheater, Nashville 1997 • Orchestre national de France; Neville Marriner, conductor, Théâtre des Champs-Élysés, Paris 1992 • Chanticleer, Cathedral of the Incarnation, Nashville 2017 • Virgil Fox “Heaven Organ” Keene, NH 1972
I completed my real estate pre-licensing coursework (90 hours) with TREES (Tennessee Real Estate Educational System).
Earlier this year, I earned the GRI (Graduate REALTOR® Institute), designation, a nationally recognized professional real estate designation that is awarded after successfully completing a rigorous educational program.
I am also a THDA-approved Realtor®, having completed the “Great Choices Mortgage Program” training, and can assist qualifying buyers with finding properties and lenders to help access the benefits THDA offers, including down payer assistance, first time home buyer education, assistance in purchasing in distressed areas, and programs for Veterans.
In February 2018, I was a recipient of the Greater Nashville REALTORS® Education Achievement Award.
