Thank you so much for visiting my page. You have just found the ONLY REALTOR that you and your family will ever need!! I can show/sell any property that is listed, and you will see it is much easier working with one Realtor that you can trust. I was trained at Manfred University. I am a NYS Licensed Real Estate Broker with over a decade of Real Estate training and experience of helping thousands of sellers and buyers in Central New York. I am extremely pleased to be an Associate Broker with the top office in the Utica-Rome, Mohawk Valley area, Coldwell Banker Faith Properties!!
My most recent awards and achievements inlcude receiving the Executive Club Award, only designated for the few top-producing agents, at the last office I was with, which I received every year I was there. Before that, I was also the principle Broker and Owner of the Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchise in Whitesboro, NY for approximately 4 years. There I was trained extensively in many areas including listing, marketing and selling real estate, home value and evaluation, and 1st-time homebuyers. I was certified as an REO foreclosure lisitng agent and much more. I decided to close the franchise after the recession.
I also have over 20 years of sales and public relations experience as a Retail Store Manager, District Manager and Associate with various retail companies and locations. Some including Kay Jewelers in Sangertown Square where I became a Certified Diamontologist with the Diamond Council of America (DCA), Foot Locker Store Manager in Riverside Mall, Sangertown Square, Carousel Center, Salmon Run Mall in Watertown, and Marketplace Mall in Rochester. After moving to Tampa, Florida, I was Store Manager at Journeys Shoes, Alltel Wireless Communications and a District Manager at Traffic Shoes.
I started my first sales job when I was 16 years old, and I received my first annual multi-million dollar store management opportunity at the age of 20. Much of my sales experience, customer service expertise, public relations, negotiating, and training skills was obtained by working my way through the management training programs of each of these various successful retail companies and quickly becoming Store Manager. I was directly responsible for all store operations, including auditing, customer service, merchandise, and the recruitment, development and evaluation of all my employees and managers in training.
When I moved back to Central New York from Florida, I chose to stay in sales due to my success, passion and enjoyment with helping and working with the public. That is when I decided to start my Real Estate career and selling houses was what I was going to do and be successful at it.
I am proud to now be back in my hometown as an Associate Broker with Coldwell Banker Faith Properties. I understand finding the perfect home and location can sometimes be a confusing process and can take time. I intend to help you, every step of the way no matter how long it takes, from our first appointment until I hand you the keys to your beautiful new home!!
Please call, text or email me anytime with your Real Estate needs, questions and referrals. I am confident you will be glad you did, and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity. Thank you very much!!
