"I’m a reluctant self-promoter, it makes me uncomfortable – but I am accomplished and very fortunate to have a slew of appreciative clients or “friends” as I call them; clients who’ve become friends. I truly do get great satisfaction from taking care of folks who entrust me with their significant real estate transactions, it's what drives me. Many clients are based elsewhere and can’t be present for the various inspections and minutia present in a real estate transaction – I am. I’m a “dog person” if that helps or is important. Oh, and I’ve also found that it helps to have a sense of humor during these trying times – I hope you do too."
