“I learned about the real-estate business from the age of 23 when I first began buying multi-family income properties and fixing them up. Not only was I building my portfolio, but I was learning first-hand how everything from construction to managing tenants really works. For me it was never just about buying a home, but an investment in my future. With my accounting background, I can help guide you through the myriad of options when it comes to deciding where to place your money to ensure maximum returns. At the end of the day, I don’t mind showing 100 homes before committing – first and foremost, my goal is to get people into the right property for their specific situation.”

“The secret to a successful real estate transaction is patience. You have to trust the process because there are things we can control and others we can’t. I believe if it’s meant to be, it will be. That said, I’ll work my butt off to make sure that the luck falls our way and I’ll be with you every step of the journey.
