I am a native Oregonian that was born and raised in the Salem area. I obtained my real estate license in January of 2007 just as the market was heading into a down turn. This was actually to my advantage because I had to roll up my sleeves and learn how to market and sell a home in a market where there were not a lot of buyers. I retired from corrections and law enforcement after over 20 years to pursue my passion and dream to help people with their real estate needs. My background has provided me with the opportunity to work closely with a wide variety of people of various ages and cultures. In January of 2016 my wife (Kim) joined me and we formed The Keene Group real estate team and our business took off.
My family and I currently live in West Salem, Oregon where we are involved in many parts of the community. We are members of the West Salem Business association along with avid supporters of youth sports throughout Salem. I have coached youth sports with in the community for almost 20 years and enjoy the opportunity to give back.
