Before you make any decisions about who to employ in a real estate transaction, it's impotant that you know a little bit about who I am. My years of business and negotiating set me apart from many people claiming to be real estate experts. Often times, they are simply agents trying to get a deal done quickly to free up their time for their next deal. I work to represent my client's interests in a way that gets the transaction done to their benefit.

I have a unique background that combines professional negotiating, business acumen, and construction knowledge & coupled with a talent for recognizing properties offering strong values!  So much of this real estate terrain is filled disappointments for the unsuspecting person. My insights and tenacity also differentiate me from many Realtors. My work style is a consultative approach and I thoroughly enjoy working with clients when it is a collaborative effort it makes everything more fun!

When working with Buyers, beyond just covering geography, I take my clients on a comparative journey, helping them educate themselves to values and prices. I don't want to keep clients in the dark: an educated client is a more successful client.

The ying and yang of this business allows me to also work with Sellers. I enjoy both sides of the real estate equation and I benefit greatly from being in touch with what busy Buyers are searching for when I help a Seller put their unique property up for sale.  I position a Seller's property to take advantage of these nuances through staging, tailored marketing systems, social media and unlocking the full potential of the internet through the Sotheby's massive worldwide presence.

I am passionate about always doing the right thing for my clients.As it turns out, my clients are very interesting people & so it is easy for me to share in their real estate ambitions, work to get the results they need, and this builds enduring and enjoyable relationships!
