Thank you for your years of service and enthusiasm at Ramshaw Real Estate! We look forward to many more!

Here’s a little more about Todd:

Before working at Ramshaw Real Estate, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
I worked for “Stan’s Ice Cream” summer job for 5 years straight. I loaded the ice cream trucks in the morning, sent the workers out for the day, met them at night, and took their money and orders for the next day.

Well now we’re craving ice cream. What was your favorite part of working there?
Unlimited Popsicles, especially the kinds you can never find in the stores like coconut, blue raspberry, banana, etc.

How do you define success?
If my head hits the pillow at night and I can say I made a difference in someone’s life that day.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Play guitar or piano.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
It’s not important to win every battle. Let the small ones go but hang on for the big things that matter.

What’s something people might not know or find surprising about you?
I helped set a world record for vertical beer keg stacking with money going to MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association).

What’s your proudest moment at Ramshaw Real Estate?
When I was put on staff, I was originally an independent contractor Broker. When Jerry offered me the position of HR and Brokerage Manager, I knew I was going to be working for a great company doing work I love.

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?
