Early in my career I worked with major Developers in New Jersey where my vast knowledge and love for real estate began. I have approximately 15 years’ experience as a licensed agent in residential real estate, working throughout many counties. Placing people in new homes, selling homes for people who are moving on for various reasons and helping people on all levels of real estate became a fast-growing passion. I wanted to share my knowledge and love for the industry with others and began mentoring new agents. I achieved my Broker’s License with the sole intention of procuring Instructor Certification. It is fulfilling to be part of the process of change for individuals wanting to master the art of buying and selling real estate.
