Realtor. Entrepreneur. Fitness Buff. Travel Fanatic and Life Enthusiast
I’ve been in the real estate business one way or another my entire life. As a kid, I worked in my Mother’s real estate office after school and even as a child, I was aware of how very hardworking and driven she was, which made her a successful Realtor. It is from witnessing her work ethic, that my real estate career’s foundation has been formed. I’ve come a long way from riding my bicycle to the local board of Realtors in Stamford, CT, picking up the latest hot sheet of new homes for sale, to where we are today,with this website and having instant access to everything. I put my clients first, face challenges head on, and manage to be part of the solution. With a positive attitude and extensive networking, I am proud of the 95% success rate and my ability to make deals happen. I’ve worked with first time home buyers, seasoned real estate investors, Presidents of Fortune 500 companies to retirees coming to Delray Beach to enjoy their golden years. Everyone who uses my professional services receives the same 5 Star treatment that my Mother instilled in me all those years ago.
Being a Realtor, is far more than selling homes, it’s about building a business and developing relationships. I construct marketing and business plans to get homes sold. My Florida Realtor’s license is in exemplary standing with both state and local governments and I strictly abide to the code of ethics of my industry. I am a sponge for advanced education and network with other business owners and my peers for ways to make my business more efficient and increase the bottom line for my customers and myself.
Believe it or not, I was that skinny awkward kid who got bullied at school and was never the first choice for their kickball team either. It sounds like a cliché, but it’s true. However, those experiences made me learn to run fast and out smart ’em. Now that I look back on it, it was those formative childhood years that gave me the foundation to take up body building in my adult life. One day ,I decided not be that skinny kid anymore and began to take my workouts more seriously, hired a trainer and entered a body building competition. As I began to train, not only did my body change, so did way of thinking. I felt more confident, I smiled more and I believe feeling great helped my business. In body building its’ about working through boundaries to make it happen and in business it’s bout working through challenges for the positive result. I didn’t win that body building competition, but I placed a proud second in my age weight class – there were only two of us competing in that class.
My Mom may have had the fancy Real Estate office, but my Dad worked for the Airlines. So, like real estate, travel too has been in my blood all my life. As a kid, my family and I traveled all over the world. Today I still love everything about travel. From going through Airport security, sitting at the gate to getting on and off the plane. It still amazes me that these huge planes can manage to take off and land and it’s so much fun to people watch too. My travels have taken me all over Europe and South Africa, South America, Australia, Central America, the Caribbean, and most of our beautiful country USA. There are so many places to see and cultures to get to know that I feel my travels help me, when I work with customers, because we always have something to talk about and chances are I can name a point of interest in their home town
“People want to be around Positive People” Isn’t that the truth! A long time ago, I read Zig Ziglar’s book See You at The Top. His book teaches how to get rid of stinkin thinking. That book was instrumental in helping me approach life and its challenges from the positive side of things. Being a life enthusiast has helped me through many challenges personally and professionally, especially in my Real Estate business, The decisions my customers have to make are sometimes the largest and life changing decisions at that very moment. I am so happy when my customers turn to me for help and advice, even if its only to listen. I am there to help them through it all..
