Along with his shock of blond hair and athletic construct, he may appear extra surf dude than up-and-coming entrepreneur.

Religion additionally performs a component, Cristy stated. “I consider the Lord goes to information our steps, He is aware of what we’re good at.”
Malozsak’s most up-to-date enterprise has taken off within the 16 years he’s been promoting actual property, first with Lengthy Realty and finally with a dealer’s license launching Suburban Actual Property Group in Sahuarita, an organization that handles gross sales, leases, funding properties and administration companies.

Seeing progress flourishing right here, Malozsak felt the necessity for extra worship alternative and talked brother-in-law Tim Olof and household into transferring right here to start out one, and after 15 years, The Rock Church not too long ago accomplished a everlasting facility, Cade stated.
Malozsak says Cade’s received lots going, however that his greatest attribute “is that this drive; he walks his religion.”
He’s received stable checks and balances, is decided and hard-charging.
