About me

I’ve been a top-producing Realtor for over 30 years, and I bring an enormous amount of experience. I have lived in Hillsdale for over 18 years, and I was getting tired of seeing the homes in this neighborhood not go up in value. After all, this is such a great community that is one of a kind! I believe that my local knowledge of the area, honesty, professionalism, communication and working hard toward the same goal are my strengths. I value all of my clients and strive to build strong, lasting relationships with them that go far beyond the business transaction. I served in the US Air Force as a flight medic for eight years, decorated with Air Force Commendation Medal and Meritorious Service Medal. The next time you’re poised to enter the market, I’d be honored to guide you through this important experience.

BUYER

Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make, and the right advice and guidance is paramount. Experience and expertise matter and they can make a significant difference in making sure that you not only find the right house, but that you also pay the best price.

I not only have a thorough understanding of the marketplace but I also have access to many properties that are off-market 

and an awareness of properties that are about to be listed. Most importantly, I’m keenly aware of the nuances that determine value and I am discerning as to construction quality, materials, and craftsmanship.   I will listen to your needs and find you the perfect home and I will make sure that you make an educated and informed decision. Once you choose a property I will represent your interest vociferously throughout the purchase process, negotiating the best possible purchase price, managing and advocating for you during inspections, escrow, title, and closing. I will also advise you on how to make the house even better, including furniture and design, and possibly remodel ideas and augmentations where beneficial.

Seller

Choosing the correct real estate agent to sell your home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. It can be the difference between your home sitting on the market for months or selling quickly, for hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars more. Your home is a very personal, important, and valuable asset, and it can be an emotional and complicated endeavor to sell it, especially in today’s challenging marketplace.

Numerous questions and concerns will need to be addressed, and the advice and consultation that you receive can make a tremendous difference in the results. Marketing and advertising, remodeling and/or upgrading, photography, internet exposure, staging, design, floor-plan measurements, videography, timing and presentation, inspections, pre-market exposure, agent outreach and relationships, open houses, pricing, and dozens more nuances and subtleties all make up the difference between failure and a successful sale.
