Get to know me!

I started my career in construction and realized my passion for this industry, becoming a Superintendent by age 25. A degree in Construction Managment and Business fueled my career of 35 years. I’ve held many titles ranging from Site Manager, General Contractor, Superintendent, Division President, Construction Manager, and Regional Vice President.

Transitioning to buying and selling real estate opened up a whole new can of worms. As we started buying, redeveloping and selling homes, close friends and clients began asking for help so they could participate as well. From there, Central Development Group, LLC was born. I get to pursue my passions and help others do the same every single day.

Endurance sports are both culture and a reset from business having completed 6 Ironman Triathlons, The Spartan Beast, and over 20 other ultra-distance bicycle races. It seems tearing down walls, blasting through brick and biking 112 miles consecutively seem to go hand in hand in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and filling the day. I doubt I’ll ever retire, though the IronMan’s might be another story!


I have two sons, Connor (left) and Drew (right), who also compete in races with me. This race was the Spartan Beast in Lake Tahoe California. It includes over 36 obstacles and 18 miles of intense terrain, at over 9,000 ft. elevation. They seem to have inherited my love for the extream.

Connor serves as a U.S. Marine and is now finishing his degree in Integrated Physiology at The University of Colorado in Boulder. Drew is finishing his law Degree at The University of Missouri Kansas City and has earned a position working under a Supreme Court Judge upon graduation.



This is Miss Maya, our rescue dog. She is usually found curled up on the floor attempting to be my slippers. Maya is the only Greaves Family dropout. She failed out of therapy dog training because of her “abundant energy” as they put it. Luckily, we put that energy to good use with our bi-weekly 11-mile walks.
