I started my real estate career in 2008 at the North Olmsted Howard Hanna office. While at Howard Hanna I received the “Above and Beyond” award. After working with buyers and sellers in The Greater Cleveland area I realized that a national presence would help my sellers reach more buyers. I also realized that many teams have formed across the United States in real estate to provide buyers and sellers with improved service levels. It was at this point, I decided to join the top real estate team in Cleveland, The EZ Sales Team at Keller Williams Realty Greater Cleveland West. I am a lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio and a graduate of Midview High School.
Immediately, after graduation, I became a national truck driver and enjoyed this career for over 17 years. Driving all over The United States has helped me to view architecture in a different light. Understanding the different style changes, developers, cities and watching these cities develop gives me a perspective that many home buyers should consider. This perspective has proven very valuable to my buyers and sellers. My clients also find value with my years of local living and home sales in Cleveland. I pride myself on being a good listener and many of my clients have commented on my reliability of always being there when they need me.
Purchasing a home can be a very stressful event. However, I find the most rewarding part of being a Realtor is my ability to make this commonly stressful event into a fun and exciting journey. Whether you are concerned about getting the most for your home as you sell in a challenging market or making sure you purchase the perfect home for your family, I am ready to help you achieve your goals.
