Whether you're buying your first home, a second home, investment property or selling real estate, I will be dedicated to achieving your satisfaction.Real Estate is my passion and I am ever so grateful to be a part of this truly great business that enables me to help people out in so many different ways. I am a proud member of the National Association Of REALTORS®(NAR),Florida Associations Of Realtors (FAR) and also a member of the highly acclaimed and prestigious REALTOR ® Association Of Greater Fort  Lauderdale (RAGFL).

Many Realtors claim to be specialists of all sorts and the only thing I claim to really specialize in is selling any and all sorts of real estate period.I really do not like setting limits for myself and I sell properties at all price points in the market. However, I really do love luxury residential homes and condominiums and it's an area of the business I plan on expanding quite alot in my career.

Education in my profession is a never ending quest. My thirst for knowledge in the many different aspects of real estate is one of my top priorities in which clients can be assured that they are in deed dealing with a true professional. During my time as a Licensed Florida Realtor I have earned the following designation of CDPE® (Certified Distressed Property Expert) I am very proud of attaining the designation of CDPE® as only less than 1% of all Realtors nationally have aquired it. The CDPE® is very specialized training that allow's me to help people in pre -foreclosure situations to sell the home on a shortsale basis in a much more effective and efficient way than the average Realtor knows about resulting in an overall higher success rate. I have also earned the designations of CFS (Certified Foreclosure Specialist) and CSP (Certified Shortsale Professional) which also further my expertise in pre-foreclosure situations. this section is and will continue to be a work in progress.

Providing my clients with world class service from the time we meet all the way thru closing is my highest priority. That is what you can expect and is definitely what you will receive when you decide to list or buy your home with me. My goal will be to exceed your expectations. My purpose is in being a true professional that you can count on to get the job done and to give you the confidence to refer my trusted services to your family,friends and co-workers.


I am originally from the small town of Millbury Massachusetts. Soon after graduating high school I attended the Musicians Institutes "Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood California for their highly intensive summer session. Then at age of  eighteen I decided to move to the great state of Florida with my family and have been here ever since.Having been in Florida for the past twenty one years which by the way is longer than the time I grew up and lived in Massachusetts, I now consider myself a true Floridian. I have been happily married for the past fifteenteen years and have three great kids along with a bunch of family pets ranging from Sugar Gliders to Dogs.
