My career in Real Estate began when I got married and moved to New Jersey. My professional background was in the entertainment industry (theater and television), and international trade. I am frequently asked what attracted me to Real Estate and what I enjoy about it. What attracted me is that it is a profession built around people’s dreams, but in a different way than the entertainment business because unlike theatre and TV, these dreams actually come true in our clients’ lives. For my wife and Real Estate partner Virginia and me, it is extremely rewarding to guide our clients through the complex and demanding task of finding or selling a home. My process is to completely understand our clients’ needs and priorities, whether it is a particular style of home, a first rate school system, a reasonable commute, or all of the above and more. Realtors are consultants and as in any successful and productive business relationship, it is crucial to truly listen in order to provide the best options, smooth out all problems, and achieve the goal, which is to find buyers that most important prize – a beautiful place to live – and to bring sellers the result they have earned and launch them on their path toward a new home to cherish.
Why do I like this? Because home is an important American value, and we bring people home. We lead our clients through a detailed and intricate process and help them make wise decisions. We have sold homes and brought buyers to new their new homes from as far north as Lake Hopatcong to as far south as the Jersey Shore. In the end, we get to see the broad smile on the faces of new homeowners when the put the key in the door for the first time, or the warm glow of a satisfied homeowner who has been rewarded for passing along their home to another, and is now ready to enjoy what’s next in their lives.
