Born in Philadelphia and raised in the Midwest, Tom moved back to Philadelphia following college. He earned a B.A. in finance and is a Certified Public Accountant. With that background he began a 20-year career in the insurance industry, most recently as the Vice President of Finance with Aon Corporation. The next chapter in his career took him in a completely different direction, running his own business in the home-services industry doing interior design, home staging and importing and selling antiques at both the wholesale and retail levels. He and his partners have renovated and flipped numerous houses and condominiums in Philadelphia and New York City, which made handling real estate transactions a natural fit in his career path. Tom's business and financial background, combined with his understanding of real estate, renovation and design, uniquely qualify him to work with buyers and sellers, helping them make decisions about personal residences as well as investment purchases.
