My first involvement in Real Estate was at just 12 years old when my father bought my family’s first investment property. Over the summer my brother and I helped gut, re-wire, plumb and completely remodel the 5-unit apartment building.
At 18 I purchased my first home. A Victorian fixer-upper that I spent the next year restoring from the ground up.
It would seem I wasn’t meant to be there long as just as I finished the home I was bit by another bug! At 23 years old I purchased an 80-seat, fine-dining restaurant.
During the next several years I finished my business degree, attending night school with Penn State University, and purchased and renovated several historic homes and investment properties.
After 13 years in the restaurant business I decided it was time for a change. It was highly suggested by many of my friends and family that Real Estate was a natural fit.
I have never looked back. In my first year I managed to close on over 20 homes. I was awarded the Rising Star Award Rising Star Award and since then have been awarded Top Producer awards, Presidents Council awards and several other honors by my peers in the business. I have never stopped learning and received my Brokers license within days of meeting the time requirements.
I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of clients realize their dreams of buying their first or selling their fifth home.
One thing that is always commented on by my clients is the passion that I feel for Real Estate. Every sale is some ones personal home and I remember what it feels like to go through the purchase and sale of my own homes and use that knowledge to provide the type of service that I myself would want from a Real Estate Professional.
I am passionate about our community and spend much of my free time volunteering with many different organizations. I am president of the Historic Near Westside and am currently a commissioner for the City of Elmira’s Historic Review Commission. I have served on committees and boards for many organizations throughout the Finger Lakes.
Whether buying your first or selling your fifth, give me a call to discuss how my knowledge and enthusiasm for Real Estate can create the best plan to make you dream a reality
