Bud was born and raised in South Texas, working his way through school before graduating with a degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M University - Kingsville. While always a small town boy at heart, Bud's international assignments during his tenure working for a Fortune 50 company have allowed him to enhance his communication skills and have a deep appreciation for varying cultures and perspectives. His experience in dealing with people, coupled with his background in interpreting, negotiating and explaining contracts are assets that he enjoys utilizing as he helps individuals, families and commercial clients navigate through the challenges of buying and selling real estate.
Bud and his wife Ellen moved to rural Miami County, Kansas in 2003, and have three children, two of which graduated from Louisburg High School. They now live in Parkville, Missouri, and have been married for over 30 years. In his spare time, Bud enjoys working out, bird hunting, and is also a competitive shotgunner.
