Ray comes to Engel & Völkers with over 25 years on hands-on experience and industry-tested success. In addition to his experience as a successful real estate investor and broker/manager, his abilities are augmented with a broad based business background as an executive manager and consultant.
His real estate investment experience started in Hilton Head, SC as a Broker Sales Executive for ClubCorp of America where he was awarded in sales achievement for fractional homes and best closing ratio of sales to appointments (22% - threshold of 10%).
