I was born on the eastern shore of Maryland, served in the US Navy, and received my Bachelor's degree focused in art/ marketing. I've lived in Florida since 1995 and have purchased, managed rentals and sold homes of my own. I have been a licensed Florida Realtor since 2001, as well as member of local investment groups in the Bay area. I enjoy helping others reach their goals, and be reasonably compensated for my work. My background has given me an advantage due to my training and skills in Design, Property Management, and home repairs. I have been in business through the boom, bust, and recovery of the real estate market. My team always wants a win-win relationship, our clients find themselves pleased and ready to refer us to their friends and family. Our success begins with clear communication. The hard conversations must not be avoided thus we must be willing to present reality as it truly is. I will not tell you what I think you want to hear. Instead I will be totally honest about the options you have based on your specific needs.
