New Kid on The Block

George Russell from Austin,Texas. I just passed my TREC exam and am waiting on my number. I’ve been in/around Austin for over 30 years and have almost that in res. construction experience. I’ve done pretty much everything when it comes to building homes. I had my own framing crew for 7 or 8 years, built playground equipt for a couple of years and done tons of remodeling. I see there are some Austin boys on this forum so some of you may have inspected some of my work in the past. On top of that I’m one of those “evil” people who went to school to learn more about this trade. FWIW I’m a Kaplan grad and I’m not real thrilled with their program. I’m looking forward to learning from you all and hope to meet some of you face to face in the future.
