About Bio:
After over 30 years in the business of helping people buy and sell property, I feel like I've received my PhD in Real Estate.  With a background in education, I believe that my clients should have the knowledge to make an intelligent decision based on their needs and wants.  It's important that we also try to keep the stress of it (right up there after death and divorce on the stress-meter) at a minimum.  Very little can happen in a deal that I haven't seen and dealt with before.
