Clifford has years of experience in sales, auditing, commercial property management and marketing. He has excelled in every facet of business he has pursued and is now a dedicated, full time commercial broker.

He was the captain and MVP of his high school team and college team for all four years and lead both teams to conference championships with leadership, hard work and determination.

Time management and working harder than any other golfer is what led him to success on the golf course and that same drive is what leads him to closing transactions quickly and efficiently in the Real Estate world.


He says "Commercial real estate is just like professional golf, if you work hard you will be the best and if you don't...well you will miss the cut and someone better will take the prize" This mind set has made Clifford a successful broker and businessman.
