Welcome to my Website

Thank you for visiting my website!  Born and raised in the Detroit area, I will always call the Detroit area my home.  With my 20+ years of residential real estate knowledge and experience - my goal as a real estate professional is to assist my clients, listen to their needs and guide them to their next destination.  Whether my clients are first time Buyers or Sellers who have moved a few times in their lives - the Real Estate Business and Market continually changes - I am here to help!

Professional Background

When making the transition from Commercial Real Estate to Residential Real Estate in 1996, my partner Michael Dowdle and I interviewed many companies.  We found that Coldwell Banker had the most to offer with respect to training, marketing, technology and national name recognition.

I was fascinated by the Real Estate industry working in the Real Estate Division of the Kmart Corporation, Troy, Michigan  from 1981 - 1993.
