Tell our readers a little about you and your business.

I’m a Midwestern boy from the Great State of Ohio who always had dreams of living in the Sunshine State.  I’ve worked in real estate marketing and sales for the past 20 years both in Ohio and in Florida.  I specialize in finding the perfect home or rental for my clients.  Whether that is right here in our friendly neighborhoods of Wilton Manors, Oakland Park, Poinsettia Heights, Victoria Park or in deep waterfront luxury canal homes in Pompano Beach, Lake Santa Barbara, Pompano Isles, or Harbor Village; I’m here to help!

How long have you been in the real estate business?

I have over 20 years of marketing and sales experience.

Do you specialize in any specific types of real estate?  

I specialize in the area’s Gayborhoods as well as deepwater, waterfront homes in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach areas.

Do you focus on any specific neighborhoods? If so, where?

I love selling and renting in the Gayborhoods of Wilton Manors, Oakland Park, Poinsettia Heights, Victoria Park, Middle River Terrace, or anywhere else my clients would like to be.  I also specialize in deep-water, waterfront homes in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.

How is the market now in South Florida?  

The market is strong and fast.  Plan ahead and be ready that when you find that perfect home, to make your offer right then and there.  There is low inventory in the area, so homes go fast!

What advice do you have for anyone buying or selling a home?

Get all the answers you need to make the best decision for you.  Buying and selling a home can sometimes feel overwhelming.  Speaking with a professional realtor can eliminate stress and streamline selling your home or purchasing a new one.

Is there anything else that you would like to add?

It is always best to ask, ask, ask.  Realtors are here to help you every step of the way.  I pride myself on the relationships I have with my clients by providing them all the information, professionalism, and integrity they deserve to make the best decision.  Shouldn’t your real estate experience be a great one?
