Biography

I am the kind of person that believes in happiness and knowing what brings me happiness is the key to success, both personally and professionally. As we have all experienced, life's lessons can be profound and un-parallel. Your total satisfaction is my number one priority and helping you to achieve that goal is how I have built my reputation. Whether you are buying or selling, I am devoted to your cause and will take the time to listen to your needs and desires. I contribute my success to my acute understanding of human nature, my exceptional ability to communicate with people and my innovative skill in marketing. A calculated strategy, effort, and money in advertising sell real estate. Just think of me as the "Ideas Guy" with the background and support to make it happen.

Specialization

I do not attempt to sell everything that comes my way. I know that to be successful in selling a property you must be focused on its unique details and the follow up of its potential buyers. My main focus is on the Island of Key West and I have a long term client base that has both residential and commercial real estate here so I can speak both languages. Also, because I am an avid boater (lived on one for 3.5 years in Key West), my passion for water and waterfront properties resonates through my communication and awareness of any waterfront opportunities on our wonderful Island community; marinas, canal front, water views, are us!

Education

I have a 4 year Bachelor Degree in Business Management, from Northwood Institute of Midland MI. Northwood Institute is known for its focus on high finance, economics, and big business strategies and attracts students from all over the world as well as major corporations like Dow Chemical, General Motors, Ford Motor (to name a few) who pull from the schools student body to fulfill their employment needs. The knowledge I gleaned from association with top entrepreneurial masters of business in our country in the 70's has given me the ability to think out of the box.

Community Involvement

Maintain Captains License since 1996; 2001 Board of Dir. Oceanside Marina; 2002-2004 Member Key West Sail & Powerboat Member; 2004-2006 Board of Dir. Galleria Condos; Wesley House Silent Auction contributor/helper.

Accomplishments

Top Producer in 2008, 2009 and 2011 for Prudential Knight & Gardner Realty. Recipient of the 2009 Leading Edge Society Award. Due to my business education in college and my experience of being the General Manager of a successful Ford & Mercury dealership for almost 20 years, I have a unique, profound perspective as the lens that I look through while assessing a business opportunity. I think out of the box from an array of perspectives, taking into account all the angles and maximizing components such as marketing, value add, efficiencies, and management. The ability to recognizing synergies is my specialty. I was 3rd generation in Sales & Marketing for my family's Ford & Mercury dealership.

Other Information

My wife and I came down to Key West just for the Millennium on our home "IMAGINE THIS" and invited all our friends to join us. We loved it so much that we took up roots and have never left. We still can't believe our luck and good fortune, call it fate, that keeps us still here and loving this great Island. If this is your dream, I believe I can help you make it happen.
