Anthony is grateful to have an effective track record of building successful businesses and strategic partnerships.
Over the last 15 years, his primary focus has been on integrated real estate services including real estate brokerage, mortgage lending, title insurance, property/casualty insurance and home warranty. Anthony co-founded and is an investor in several of these businesses in Arizona and Texas. Additionally, he served as President of Strategic Alliances/Vendor Network for Keller Williams Realty (in support of 676 offices and 100,000 real estate agents).
Previously, after college graduation and a couple of years as a commercial lender in Houston, he co-founded, operated and ultimately sold a contract manufacturing business in Mexico providing offshore services to multinationals. In addition, he served in senior roles in businesses including professional employer organizations, commercial real estate, mergers and acquisition and private equity.
Anthony’s earliest memories and most formative experiences are from working along-side his dad: a successful, principled and hard-working entreprenuer. These lessons continue to be foundational to his approach to business and life.
Married to Paula for 26 years, they live in Austin, TX and are the proud parents of three exceptional young men: Jason, John and Austin. In his free time, Anthony enjoys playing tennis and exploring trail systems with his wife and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
This is an excerpt from a speech delivered by Teddy Roosevelt over 100 years ago.
