Helping others find the right home or real estate investment is something I'm passionate about. This is the result of making several moves during my own sales career and buying and selling homes each time. I've learned a great deal during each of those moves and owning the right home has brought not only a lot of personal satisfaction and enjoyment, but has also proved each time to be a good financial investment. This held true even after the housing bubble when I was able to rent a couple previous homes for several years until the market rebounded instead of selling at the worst possible time. I want to share my experience and knowledge with others looking to purchase their next home or investment property. My approach with my clients is simple: providing exceptional customer service. I do this by listening closely to their wants and needs, drawing upon my industry knowledge and past experience, paying close attention to detail and being available whenever questions or concerns arise.

My promise to you as a customer:
My philosophy of business has always been to treat you as I would like to be treated. This means as far as serving Buyers, I will help you buy a residence by educating you to make an informed decision, rather than trying to “sell” you a property. For sellers, I will price your property fairly to sell in expeditious time frame based on the Best Possible value you can bring at a point in time.
Selling a home in 48 hours is usually not serving a seller’s best interest.
