The Watchung Family

   Having been a resident of Watchung since 1963, and working on community projects since 1969, I have become a member of the Watchung "Family". We are comprized of a multitude of residents, some long time and some relatively recent, that come together to make this lovely "small town living" work. When times are difficult about town, this family unit comes together to assist anyone who needs help. I am proud to be a part of this family, along with my wife and son, and hope that you will wish to join us as new residents of Watchung.

Professional Background

I started with AT&T in 1975 as an office assistant for the Executive Offices in NYC. I left and went to work for the Watchung Borough Public Works in 1977. In 1979 I stated in the construction industry working for many different employers until 1988 when I started my own business doing general contracting, finish carpentry and cabinet making. Much of my work was for the television and communications sectors. In 2012 I took my real estate licence course and started with Prudential New Jersey Properties, teaming up with my son Shane.

Personal Background

   I moved to Watchung at the age of six in 1963. I attended Watchung schools from 1st grade through high school. In 1982 I married my wife Laurie and we had two sons, Cory is a patent attorney in Alexandria, Va, Shane is a professional firefighter in N. Plainfield, NJ and my real estate partner here at Prudential NJ Properties.

Community Involvement

  I joined the Watchung Fire Department in 1973 as a 16 yr old Junior Fireman. I went through the ranks and retired as Chief in January of 2012. I still respond to calls in Watchung as well as N. Plainfield, where I am a callman. I was appointed to the Watchung Board of Adjustment in January of 2011 and I am working on the committee to construct the Watchung 9/11 memorial.

Personal Interests

  I have always been active with community service and have been working towards getting more public support for our volunteers. The average tax payer thinks that these people are paid employees, as they get professional service from them, but they fail to realize that these dedicated volunteers save them millions in taxes every year!


  I am dedicated to assisting Police, Fire and Medical personnel with finding quality homes in the towns which they so diligently serve. I also enjoy the challenge of assisting my clients with the problems that arise when trying to sell or buy a property. Most of the time, they can be solved with thinking outside the box and some careful research.
