I seem to work with many single (newly divorced) individuals. I take pride in helping my clients find or sell a home during these difficult times.

My ideal client is someone who is realistic and wants to excel in life. Someone who wants to have a nice home for themselves. I enjoy helping people set themselves up well so they will have a nice home and still be able to enjoy life.
12. If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Being so busy in real estate and going 24-7; I find I prefer vacations that require little thinking. Skiing and staying in a mountain cabin or relaxing on a beach while reading a good book is ideal!
