Bruce began his real estate career by marketing and selling residential
properties. He quickly developed a keen interest in the Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) homes and other government-owned
real estate. Also in 2001, following a two year suspension, HUD's
Officer Next Door and Teacher Next Door programs were reinstated with
several changes to promote accountability and responsibility. Bruce
immediately began promoting the two initiatives to Dallas and Fort Worth
area residents as homes became available. He was able to assist several
Officers and Teachers acquire homes and before long, he was traveling
throughout Texas helping other candidates.
In 2003, he

over the country showed great interest and Bruce then took off across
the U.S training, collaborating, and recruiting Real Estate Agents in
every state to assist Teachers and Law Enforcement Officers take
advantage of this great opportunity.
In 2006, HUD
combined the Officer Next Door and Teacher Next Door initiatives, added
Firefighters and EMTs as eligible candidates, and changed the name to
Neighbor Next Door. Bruce
was able to establish the GoodNeighborNextDoor.com
web site for the purpose of providing a single location where interested
parties could find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ’s), become
educated on the eligibility requirements, and be notified when homes
became available in their area. His mission to educate Real Estate
Agents across the country about the
initiative continues today.
Now, with a
network of Agents coast to coast, Bruce continues to assist in promoting
properties, guiding Agents through the lottery process, answering
questions from Agents and Lenders and resolving eligibility issues for
