Professional Background

After working for many years in the financial services industry I followed my passion into Real Estate.  I bring to the real estate business a solid work ethic and excellent negotiating skills.  A significant portion of my business deals with first time home buyers and seniors. Buying a home can be a stressful experience; therefore, I am very patient with my customers.My job is to  make sure they have all the information they need to make this important decision.

Being a Certified Public Accountant also prepares me to better serve my sellers. In this market someone has to defend the seller's equity and I am prepared to do that.

My business is concentrated in the Middlesex County area; however, I do business in Somerset and Union counties as well.

I have successfully completed the GRI designation. I am a licensed Broker. I am also an ABR - Accredited Buyer Representative and an SRES - Senior Real Estate Specialist.
