My philosophy and ultimate goal is to make buying and selling a positive experience and a life time of memories. I have extensive knowledge in real estate, construction and project management. I have been a real estate agent for twenty years. Along with my real estate license, I held my CAM property management license for eight years. I now focus on real estate and building. I have designed and built single and multi-family homes. My current project, valued at three million dollars, is located in Victoria Park at 1624-1630 5th Street in Fort Lauderdale. I have extensive knowledge with plumbing, electrical, HVAC, structural changes and roofing. I have a specific eye to provide creative design concepts that retrofit to existing buildings and floor plans. I am familiar with permitting, site approvals and variances.
I am a Florida realtor who specializes in the South Florida area. I have enjoyed the great pleasure of growing up in one of my favorite communities, Coral Springs. After high school I moved to the University of Florida, but quickly after completing I moved back to Coral Springs. Where else can you find fabulous restaurants, great entertainment, warm and friendly neighbors, beautiful parks and top quality schools?
I first became licensed as a real estate agent in 1974 at the insistence of my "super-agent mother" and actually ended up doing quite well. I made lots of friends, and learned that people considered me a good agent because I really cared about them, listened to what they said, and didn't "lie for the deal" I believe a lie is never "a deal" I have also been a certified real estate appraiser since 1985, and I believe that unique and hard-to- get experience gives me an edge when it comes to serving "my clients" due to my above-average knowledge of the inventory all over Broward and Palm Beach Counties, as well as the specific technical aspects of financing as it is impacted by the appraisal, which still leads to your bottom line. I was born in Texas and raised in Chicago's north side just blocks from Wrigley Field. I moved to Redondo Beach, California and then on to San Diego County where I met my wife. I have two daughters who have blessed us with seven grandchildren, most of whom live locally. We truly enjoy meeting people that we can have a good time with while helping them achieve their real estate goals.
Originally from New Jersey, I have been a Floridian for twenty-six years. I have been with Kroll Realty going on ten years and I specialize in condo sales on Fort Lauderdale Beach, although I have listed and sold many residential properties as well. I have worked with first-time home buyers finding them the home of their dreams, as well as retirees and investors. I am a full-time Real Estate agent and I am always available for my clients. I am dedicated to the needs of my clients and will provide nothing but excellent service and customer satisfaction, simply because I love what I do! I have been commended by my company for having top sales and listings. My clients are my top priority and I am thoroughly dedicated to them. In my spare time I enjoy entertaining, cooking, socializing with my friends, swimming and working out.
