I love working with BUYERS! My first-time home buyers know that I am with them every step of the way. My investor clients know that I help them to do their financial homework in terms of achieving their ROI and cash-flow objectives. I am very familiar with the nuanaces of a 1031-exchange. I help buyers relocate, to downsize, upsize, and find a home away from home. I have worked with buyer clients for over two years and over 12 offers in order to help them find and purchase their new home. I am loyal and want all my buyers to have Happy Endings. You can count on me to provide a fun and successful transaction.


I love working with SELLERS! I am quick and efficient and can bring your property on the market in a very short amount of time if necessary.  My marketing efforts are top-notch and yield strong results. I consider myself an excellent negotiator and I can get you the highest dollar for your property in the shortest possible amount of time. I provide the highest level of service and expertise to each of my clients.

I offer a FREE Market Analysis (CMA) for your property at any time.
