Three years ago I purchased a beautiful home in the City of Troy and love all the wonderful things this city has to offer and how truly accessible it is to just about everywhere. Prior to living here I owned my home in the Riviera Estates section of Latham for over 25 years. Both of my children went through the award winning North Colonie School District and are graduates of Shaker High School. My daughter Jessica is Design Director for MRY, a Manhattan advertising firm. My son Michael graduated from Boston University and is now attending Queensland University Medical School in their MD/PhD program. He's almost done!

I love the Capital District and the surrounding communities. This is a great place to live and work, to raise a family, or to relocate to. Because I know and love this region, I feel I can enthusiastically represent you in the sale of your house or help you find investment property or the home of your dreams.

When you are buying or selling property in today's real estate market, it's important to have confidence in your real estate professional. My commitment as your local realtor is to provide you with the specialized real estate service that you deserve and to offer exceptional communication, character, and competence.

When you are an informed buyer or seller, you'll make the best decisions for the most important purchase or sale in your lifetime. That's why my goal is to keep you informed on trends in the marketplace using the latest statistics in your local area. With property values continuing to rise, real estate is a sound investment for now and for the future.
