My Real Estate journey began in 1991 after leaving a successful IT career on Wall St. Real estate and working with people have always been my passions, so it was a natural fit for me! I specialize in selling all types of residential properties on the Jersey shore in Eastern Monmouth County. I love living and working in the Rumson area because of its natural beauty, the beaches, the close proximity to New York City, and for its wonderful sense of community!I am proud to have received multiple awards for my hard work, including the prestigious NJ Association of Realtor's Circle of Excellence Sales Award, Bronze in 2010 and Gold in 2011. In 2006 I was designated a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), which is the highest Designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. CRS agents represent the top 4% of all licensed Realtors.I have been actively involved locally as both an elected official on the Fair Haven School Board and in leadership roles for both 180 Turning Lives Around and The Count Basie Theatre. My involvement has given me a keen knowledge of my marketplace, as well as keeping me up to date on the latest news and developments occurring in the local towns. I strongly believe in giving back and enjoy supporting numerous charitable organizations.I demand excellence from myself as well as from the company I keep. Sotheby's International Realty is a world-class organization which was founded in 1976 to service the needs of the most prestigious clientele in the world. Independent real estate companies are selectively granted franchises after meeting strict qualifications. In keeping with its stellar reputation, the Sotheby's International Realty organization boasts an esteemed group of brokers who understand the unique mindset of upscale clients seeking distinctive homes (or second and third residences). Sophisticated, savvy, and extensively trained in luxury markets, these professionals have intimate knowledge of properties within their local community. I am proud to be a part of such an amazing and talented pool of people!I believe much of my success comes from the genuine concern I have for my clients and being able to listen to their needs and wants. I take the responsibility of helping people to buy or sell one of their most value assets very seriously. I also realize and respect the emotional difficulties that sometimes go hand-in-hand with this process and enjoy coaching my clients to help them make the best decision for themselves and their families.
