How did you get started in Commercial Real Estate? I was a State Trooper for over 20 years. I retired to be director of security/residency, School System in West Hartford, CT. I then became a regional sales manager for Social Sentinel allowing me a less stringent schedule and more free time with my kids. The opportunity to get into commercial real estate continued my love of sales but also added the service component, helping people with their needs.
