Maurice converts information to knowledge and is highly adept at researching and evaluating properties in order to help his clients find the right property to purchase. Good decisions are based on good information so Maurice takes as much time as necessary to educate his clients. His own experience in developing, purchasing, selling and renovating properties has developed his skills for both identifying and evaluating the right properties and negotiating the terms of sale.

Maurice has won several awards for the renovation and preservation of historic properties. He is thoroughly familiar with, and knowledgeable, of market conditions and the purchase process. 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
