Be the first to see new listings as soon as they hit the market!
Your friendly voice of the Poconos
Thank you for taking your valuable time to visit my website. I’ve always had a lifelong connection with the Poconos and the Real Estate industry. In 2005, I decided to blend my love of new construction and site management experience with my passion of the area and dedicate myself exclusively to working with listing and selling Pocono properties. I pride myself on being able to provide practical answers to concerns that may otherwise sidetrack a sale or prevent a buyer from making that very important decision. With my background as a successful entrepreneur, I can meet the challenges of today’s market. I am flexible, easy to work with, able to listen and willing to offer unconventional options for these unconventional times.
On a personal level, yes, we all go to work every day to make money, and I am no different. But, I sincerely care for people and have fun meeting and making new friends. In the last year, I have helped several families pull through rough times. These people originally called me to discuss selling their homes. Because I have specialized training in short sales and foreclosures, I was able to help them with loan modifications. I receive a commission when I sell a home – that is how I make a living for myself and my family. But, my conscience would not allow me to list these homes if there was a possibility I could save them from foreclosure or having to short sale it. I would not feel good about myself as a person if I knew I did anything other than the right thing. To me, it is not always about money. I knew when I started working with these clients, it was the right thing to help them stay in their homes rather than list it and sell. Now, the parents, kids, and other family members are able to continue on with their lives instead of the alternative of the family moving and the bank starting foreclosure proceedings. Not every story has a happy ending, but I do my best to make it happen. As you get to know me, you will find I answer my phone all the time, even late at night, even if I know it might not be the news I was hoping to hear. If I am unable to answer the phone, I do return your call ASAP. If the matter is urgent, I have two assistants that can answer most questions on my behalf. We are on the cutting edge of technology and are able to access any information in your file within minutes. As my customer, whether buyer or seller, you are never left out of the loop. I look foward to working with you.
