Seminars & Course Instruction

I have been an instructor at the Watchung Hills Adult School & the Adult School of the Chathams. I instruct a course on preparing for down-sizing & relocating after retirement.

I hold seminars on real estate related matters at corporations in a "Lunch & Learn" format.

I hold seminars on real estate related matters at local public libraries & other public venues.

I hold Property Tax Appeal Seminars.


I specialize in the areas of New Providence, Summit, Chatham, Millburn, Berkeley Heights, Long Hill, Westfield and surrounding communities. I have had great success working with a home stager who helps get my clients' homes ready for the market place. I also have experience working with builders who are interested in investing in properties in need of renovation/demolition and helping these builders sell the renovated houses at a profit.

I'm certified as a Luxury Homes Specialist and an OwnAmerica Residential Real Estate Investment Specialist. I am therefore able to assist clients interested in investing in residential properties.

Personal Interests

New Jersey has a wide range of amenities within an hours drive of any locale. My family and I enjoy such diverse activities as visiting the Jersey Shore, biking Loantaka Brook Reservation, hiking in the Watchung Mountains, taking in a Broadway show in Manhattan, touring NY museums or hearing live music at the Morristown Community Theatre, NJPAC, SOPAC or­Shanghai Jazz.­ With so much to choose from, we can never be bored.

The dining selections are endless and the food choices are varied. You can find all manner of ethnic foods from the world over in New Jersey. Some of my favorites are:

I'm a full service real estate agent covering the Northern NJ Counties of Union, Morris, Essex and Somerset. Some of the communities I serve include New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Summit, Westfield, Mountainside, the Chathams, Millburn, Basking Ridge, Warren and Watchung. I'm focused on building client relationships for life. To that end, I strive to help both buyers and sellers accomplish their goals as efficiently as possible. The real estate market is ever changing and my clients count on me for guidance throughout each transaction and even beyond the closing. If you are a buyer or seller seeking a professional, committed real estate agent to represent you, please contact me. I work with first time buyers, move up buyers and sellers and people seeking to down-size. 

As a resident of New Providence since 1994, I've been very active in the schools and community. I have served on the Board of the New Providence Middle School PTA as Vice President. I also volunteered for the Salt Brook School PTA. In the past, I was on the Board of the Newcomers' Club of Summit, New Providence and Berkeley Heights. I am also a founding member of the Woodbine Neighborhood Association in New Providence.

I currently serve on the NCJAR Grievance Committee and the NCJAR Community Care Fund.

In my free time I enjoy Yoga, Hiking, Reading, Cooking, Traveling and spending quality time with friends and family.
