Al is a former medical professional that has brought his attributes of precision, efficiency and compassion to real estate. These careers are more closely related than one would normally think. The medical business demands absolute precision, short appointment times and a whole lot of hand holding and compassion. When you think about it, so do real estate transactions in many instances. Having been a licensed Realtor in Colorado in the past, made the transition to Florida fairly easy, although mountaintop property is a little harder to come by in the Jacksonville area. Being brought up in New England and being a resident of Jacksonville since 1997, Al can especially relate to the concerns, questions and apprehension that someone from out of state and not familiar with the area can have. Having gone through the process himself makes it easier to allay and identify those fears and inform them about what Jacksonville has to offer. Whether working with sellers, seasoned buyers or first time buyers, Al enjoys the satisfaction of helping people start a new chapter in their lives. His favorite saying, "a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet", holds true in that many of his clients do end up becoming friends.
