Ask Blake what experiences prepared him to be a good realtor and you’ll be surprised by his answer: 10 years as a firefighter and 5 as a manufacturing engineer. But it makes perfect sense. In the fire service he learned how to think strategically and adapt quickly in situations that could change in the blink of an eye. And how to communicate clearly with people in highly charged, stressful conditions. As a manufacturing engineer for a major automotive supplier, Blake perfected his attention to detail
and his ability to build trusting professional relationships. All of those skills are essential to a broker, and Blake came to the Duke Company well practiced in each of them. Plus, he’s naturally outgoing and has the gift of connecting with people easily. As a member of our West Side Team Blake puts his skills and his drive to help others to work every day, finding the best match between clients and real estate in western Oakland and Livingston Counties.
