"I want to change the industry with my approach to relationships over transactions. I have been helping people buy and sell homes for a while now and I have made some great friends throughout the entire process. These are friends that I still keep in touch with and there is no better feeling than helping someone with the biggest transaction of their life. Relationships are the foundation of trust. If there is one thing I can attribute to success, it is understanding that having a relationship is always more important than doing a deal. I try to embody that mentality every day above all else. So, though I’d be honored to be your agent, I aspire to be a friend and honestly help you in any way I can."
Drake showcases his homes on his website and utilizes a team of professional service providers such as a photographer, highly regarded staging companies, virtual tour providers, and graphic designers to assist in marketing his client’s properties.
