Welcome to my Website

I’ve been a Realtor for over 50 years (and still enthusiastic).  I was honored in 2004 to be named “Realtor of the Year” by the West Essex Board of Realtors and in 2013 the National Association of Realtors awarded me Emeritus status.  In my spare time I take computer courses, serve on the Board at my condominium and I dabble in fabric painting. 

  • Condominium/single family expertise
  • Delivering results, not promises
  • Focused on communication and patience
  • Computer literate, technology savvy
  • References on request

But, this business is not about me, it’s about you.  How can I help you? 

         I want to be your Realtor

Get To Know Me



My hobby is fabric painting.  I particularly enjoy the challenge of painting on silk and have been designing silk ties and silk scarves for 15 years.   Here are some examples:



My specialty is condominiums and single family homes.

My strength is listening to your needs and converting them to action.


The towns I cover (but not limited to) include:

The Caldwells, Cedar Grove, Essex Fells, Roseland, Verona, West Orange

I have maps of the area, bus schdules, train and jitney timetables in addition to being able to provide full town and school information.  I've lived in this county all of my life, so I really know it.

I live at Eagle Ridge (a 408 unit condo complex) in West Orange.  Need a floor plan?  I have it.

Community Involvement


I am active in my home community of Eagle Ridge and serve as a member of the Board.

Professional Interests


  • Educational junky
  • Student of on-line computer courses
  • Batik and dye painting courses


In a former life, I was a legal secretary specializing in real estate title closings.  From that career, I went right into the Real Estate field where I've happily remained.

Yes, I've taken a few college courses but I am mainly a self-taught, street smart business oriented person.


If you are a buyer, it is very important that you be pre-approved for a mortgage prior to submitting an offer on a home or condo.  First of all, it sets your budget and buying power within your means.  It also enhances your chances of negotiating on a property since the seller doesn't have to worry about a mortgage contingency. 

We have an in-house mortgage officer that can work with you (at no cost and with no obligation) to facilitate the process.

If this is confusing, call or email me and I'll go into further details.
