Areas of Expertise
Today's Real Estate market is unique, unlike any that has gone before. The challenges require special training and understanding to properly assist my clients. Assisting a client in the sale of their home requires a lot more marketing skill than simply taking a few pictures on a cell phone, listing the property on the mls and sticking a sign on the front lawn. Today's buyer is guided to the property that they will ultimately purchase by targeted professional marketing.
My 40+ years in sales and marketing plus extensive training on the latest internet and social media techniques, gives me the marketing edge to properly service my seller clients. My goal and promise, is to sell your property for the highest price that the market will bear, with the least amount of inconvenience to you.
Being a "Senior" myself, I have a special bond with those "baby boomers" who feel that it is the right time to make a change in their living arrangements. Be it "Downsizing", "Rightsizing", "Snowbirding", "Reverse Mortgage" or simply looking for that "soon to be" retirement home, I understand the concerns and challenges that we all face. With my personal and professional expertise in this area, you can rest assure you will have a smooth the transition.
I have served on the Board of Directors in my lake community for several years, along with holding most of the offices at one time or another in the Jefferson Township Rotary Club. but, my greatest joy has been in "becoming Santa Clause" for the annual Rotary Children's Christmas Party. The look of joy and wonder in a 6 yr old's eye, while they are sitting on Santa's knee, is the best Christmas present anyone could possibly receive.
I have been a resident of Cliffwood Lake, Vernon Township for a bit over 40 years. My wife Jan and I have been blessed with and raised 2 children; a boy and a girl. They in turn have blessed us with three lovely grand daughters.
After military service in Army Aviation, I worked for almost 10 years in the General Aviation/ Corporate / Airline Industry, I started literally at the bottom, cleaning toilets in corporate jets, and worked my way up to outside sales. Covering airline and general aviation accounts throughout the northeast.
I struck out on my own, forming a company supplying material handling equipment, (pallet racking, conveyors, automated handling equipment). It was about that time that I obtained my first New Jersey Real Estate License. My material handling company evolved into a consulting company concentrating on facility documentation and plant and office layout and design.
Wanting a new challenge and seeing a wonderful opportunity, I re-entered the real estate market,
My personal interests have included: rebuilding "experienced" garden tractors, skydiving, flying, astronomy, brewing, digital photography, and traveling with my wife of 40 years.
Communities I Serve
Growing up in West Milford, now living in Vernon, and having spent most of my adult life taking 2 children to all of the soccer fields, football fields, lakes, schools,and playground in the tri - county area, I am very well versed in the unique flavor of each of the communities in Sussex, Morris, Passaic and Warren counties, and will use that experience to provide my clients with that "special degree" of service that only someone with my background and experience can provide.
