Welcome to my Website - You Know Us, We Know Real Estate in Metuchen, NJ

Being a lifelong resident of Metuchen has afforded me not only wonderful friends, but a sense of community that has kept me involved with Metuchen's growth over the years.  From the development of our downtown, which has many fine shops and restaurants to our train station which commuters love since its only a 35 minute train ride away to Manhattan, Metuchen has it all.  Great schools, wonderful people with its own Main Street filled with sidewalk cafes and friendly neighbors.  All this within a 3 mile radius.  I'm proud of our town and am always happy to share our town with you. 

Managing an office of 25 real estate professionals was rewarding and never boring.  Educationally, I have a BA in Economics from Douglass College, which I followed by taking advanced Real Estate Courses and obtaining my GRI and CRB certifications. 

Professionally, I opened this office in 1982 and originally the name was Winhold Realty.  I joined Prudential Real Estate Affiliates in 1988 and thereafter was affiliated with the ever-growing Prudential New Jersey Properties in 2000, becoming their first acquisition.  Thereafter, in 2014, Prudential Real Estate became Berkshire Hathaway New Jersey Properties and we continue to grow and thrive.  It is a great feeling to see how much we have achieved from the original independent office called Winhold Realty to where we are today.  I feel a great source of pride as a turn over the management and watch us continue to grow. Now I get to do what I love best and that is working with friends, family and a myriad of past clients who I now consider as friends.

Professional Background

After graduating from Douglass College in 1980, I decided to pursue real estate.  Finding it very rewarding to list and sell properties and make my clients' dreams of ownership come true, 2 years later, Winhold Realty was born. 

In 1988, when Prudential Real Estate Affiliates invited my office to be their first independent office to join the franchise in Central New Jersey, our small neighborhood real estate office specializing only in Metuchen and Edison, became the source in Middlesex County for relocating professionals throughout the United States and was then known as Prudential Winhold Realty.

Prudential offices were growing in New Jersey and in 2000, there was a merger of the major owners of several offices in New Jersey which then became a 19-office powerhouse known as Prudential New Jersey Properties.   Winhold Realty became their first acquisition.  

One year ago we became a part of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and I am pleased that at this stage in my career I am now no longer managing our office, but have returned to what I love to do best.  I am now an Associate Broker with all my time devoted to working with all my friends and past clients.

Specialties

Owning and now managing a real estate office has allowed me to share my knowledge of real estate with a myriad of agents over the past twenty something years.  For all those years I enjoyed a reputation for knowledge of the market and have been successful no matter whether it is a buyer's or seller's market. 

The pride I felt in watching agents grow and learn is second only to being able to help my own clients either sell or buy a home, no matter what the market conditions are.

Now that I am no longer a Broker/Owner and have passed the torch of management, I have the opportunity to use my experience and knowledge of our real estate market to do what I love best and that is working with referrals from friends and past clents.  This has been the most rewarding part of my career, hearing from happy homeowners and their families and friends.
