About Me

A 1984 graduate of the University of Illinois, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, and a former Illinois State Scholar, I have a lengthy history of purchasing, negotiation, and sales service experience. I know that in real estate, as in all of life, details make the difference. It is the tending to the myriad details, anticipating situations, and providing superior levels of service that separates me from the competition.

I specialize in the pre-foreclosure and foreclosure markets. This entails working closely with homeowners facing foreclosure, and assisting them as a Home Retention Consultant, or as a Short Sale Specialist. With the detailed database of pre-foreclosure homes that I maintain on a daily basis, I also assist buyers and investors in their search for a new home.

I have earned the designation SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist), which has given me the education and experience to offer consultation to our aging population. I help seniors make the choices that enable them to live life on THEIR terms. Less than 1 of all Realtors have earned that designation here in northern Michigan. I have also earned the designation E-Marketing Pro, which means that I am a specialist in utilizing the Internet to market homes and properties for sale.

Formerly of suburban Chicago, I now reside in Lake Ann, a beautiful small town about 15 miles southwest of Traverse City. In my free time I enjoy the company of my beautiful wife, our two dogs, and four cats. I am an avid photographer, and find this area rich in photo opportunities. It is my dream to combine my two passions, photography and writing, to create a photographic journal of northern Michigan. I appreciate the quiet, rustic beauty of the land, respect and admire the wildlife that inhabits the land, and have found the serenity and happiness that eluded me in the big city. I am a proud member of the Lake Ann Lions Club, Business Networking International, Michigan Association of Realtors, and the Traverse Area Association of Realtors. Few people know that I am an accomplished and award-winning home-brewer, as well as a nationally recognized beer judge.

Prior to real estate, I had a successful career in the packaging industry. I served as Operations Manager for a corrugated carton distribution company. I realize that service is not just a department; its an attitude, a way of doing business. With my combination of knowledge, diligence, and passion, youll experience the difference a real estate professional makes in your life, and enjoy a level of service that will simply spoil you!
