Principle Owner at Tag & Associates
Tag originally got started in the real estate and construction industry in 1999 after he obtained his Texas REALTOR license. His primary business focus was in investment real estate. From there, it was an easy transition into buying real estate and flipping houses on his own. He has owned several fix & flips and rental properties along the way.
In 2009, Tag turned his attention to gaining more knowledge in his field. He obtained an
Associate’s degree in Architecture and a Bachelors degree in Construction Management. He was ranked in the top three of his class at graduation while also obtaining a personal recommendation from the program chair.
Having gained knowledge and experience in his field he decided that it was best to give back to the industry by serving as a board member for the North Dallas Collin County Division for the Dallas Builders Association (DBA). He served for 2 years on the board from 2014 to 2016. Through the help of the other board members they grew the division from 20 consistent people at luncheons to over 80 people at its peak.
Since then he has utilized the Dallas Builders Association to obtain knowledge and designations within the industry. At this time, he has 5 designation recognized by the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) and one designation that is local to the DBA. These include Certified Graduate Builder (CGB), Certified Graduate Associate (CGA), Certified Green Professional (CGP), Green Sales Professional (GSP), Certified Aging in Place (CAPS) and he is currently working on his Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) designation. He will complete the CGR designation at the 2018 IBS show in Orlando.
Tag is constantly utilizing the resources around him to gain more knowledge in his field. He has been recognized as a leader in the industry by the DBA and even asked to share that knowledge by teaching classes to their members.
