In nearly 30 years of real estate, I have found that the key to success is surrounding yourself with other like minds and creating a group dynamic that is second to none. As the number-one residential group in our office seven years running, I have created a team of agents, escrow and title, and other support persons that allow me to do what I do best—real estate, real estate, real estate.

What areas are your specialties? As original owners in The Oaks, I have garnered a razor-sharp knowledge of our local luxury community. I try to preview every new listing to provide my clients a first-hand account of the property before they step foot

in it. My other specialty is investment properties. I have found over the years through my own personal forays into rental properties that in the long run, there is no better source of retirement and contributes to a balanced portfolio. Owning something tangible and collecting monthly dividends is a great feeling.

What do you feel is the most rewarding aspect of your work? Clearly, real estate is a people business and my ability to connect with new clients as well as 30-year clients is truly rewarding. Handing over a set of keys and seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces is a feeling that everyone should experience once. Fortunately for me, after thousands of times, it never gets old.
