"If someone were to ask me if I had always intended on following in my father’s footsteps in the real estate business I probably would have said “hell no!” I had already seen the long hours that my father committed to the business. However, since joining the company in 1985 after graduating from Lehigh University, it’s now difficult to imagine doing anything else. It's been personally rewarding to take a company that was built by my father and grow it to the next level, and to lead such an extraordinary team of individuals."
What is your nickname?
“Cal” – For generations many of us have shared the same nickname and I’m pleased to say that we finally have an officially named “Cal” in the family - my nephew Cal was born in 2004.
What is your motto?
“From those to whom much is given, much is required.” (Luke 12:48)
Who are the people who have influenced you most and why?
Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of meeting my father will know exactly what I mean when I say that he has one of those larger than life personas. Through the years he has taught me so much about business and the importance of relationships. These are lessons that you can’t simply learn in school – you must experience them. So to say that he’s been a major influence would be an understatement. (At times I think I may even be turning into him!) Imustalso credit my mother for inspiring me with words to live by…”Carpe Diem!”
Which living person do you most admire?
My wife. Now that I think about it, it’s not easy being married to someone so smart, supportive and usually right!
