My love of real estate began as an early teen and through the years it has only increased. Growing up in the US Heartland (Iowa) it was easy to dream of what’s over the horizon and after college I joined the Navy for what I thought was four years of “seeing the world”. My first Navy “Liberty Weekend” was Mazatlán, Mexico. I was sold and the four years turned into twenty two. Along the way I married raised two children and we thoroughly enjoyed everywhere we lived. In 1977 I was fortunate to be assigned as Commanding Officer of the Naval Reserve Center, San Antonio. We soon decided that we had found “utopia” and when Navy retirement occurred, San Antonio was the place. My wife and I began making preparations for an exciting career in real estate. We obtained our real estate licenses and she began work as an active agent.
Along the way I received my Brokers license; in 1982 we made the transition to civilian life moved back to San Antonio and began Kinzie Real Estate Consultants, a full service firm. We built a successful residential sales, rental management and commercial real estate business. A lifelong entrepreneur I also became involved in property development, new home construction and even a small restaurant.
In 1994 we built a Second Home along the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, a beautiful well run small city between San Antonio and Austin with German Roots, that has experienced dynamic growth over the past 10 years and enjoys a significant number of Winter Texans who come for our mild winters and loads of activities. Eventually we made the permanent change of address to New Braunfels and in 2007, after 25 + years of numerous entrepreneurial involvements, we decided to divest ourselves of other business interests and concentrate on Single Family, Resort & Second Homes in the booming Texas Hill Country. I look forward to representing clients marketing their home and those who are searching for their own “Utopia”.
