Get to Know Me
Prior to becoming a real estate professional I was in the computer and software business in the Phoenix AZ area. I've been a real estate professional in Saint Augustine since 2004, negotiating and successfully closing transactions in traditional residential sales that had a lot of difficulties, a lot of short sales after the bubble burst, and transactions involving foreclosures, duplexes, and land.
I learned early on that my job isn't to sell properties, it's to close the transactions even if I have to do the job of another agent in the transaction. A lot of the work is highly technical, so with my background in software I have the ability to put to use all of the tools that are available to make your transaction smooth and a good experience for you.
I always work as a "Transaction Broker". Licensees in Florida are presumed to be transaction brokers and to not need to give a brokerage relationship disclosure to a customer.
I’m dedicated to my community and promote the quality of life it has to offer.
I'm currently a Director on the Saint Augustine/Saint Johns MLS
Family and Personal Interests
I’m married, have 2 adult children, and 2 granddaughters and 2 grandsons. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a business degree specializing in marketing.
I enjoy the outdoors and working out, particularly early morning runs on the beach with the sun coming up. I also enjoy camping at the many Florida State parks that are 2 hours or less away from home.
Another passion I have is building furniture which accounts for more than half of the furniture in my home. I'm a DIY person and do my own electrical, plumbing, painting, tile, and more at my home. Kind of makes me a good realtor for seeing the good and bad in a home!
