Maurice takes the information and technology available and focuses it into actionable client service. His clients appreciate and quickly understand the value of being personally represented in the real estate transaction process.

Since returning, Maurice has been involved in the real estate industry. He coordinated the construction of his family's home in Blowing Rock in an outstanding neighborhood that he developed. Maurice and Yvonne's two sons are attending the University of Utah where, in addition to their studies, they enjoy their love for skiing and snowboarding, which they both developed at Blowing Rock's own Appalachian Ski Mountain
