Riverview, FL 33569

BUYING OR SELLING A HOME IS typically one of the largest investments most people make. and, you most likely have questions you need ANSWERED.

That's why I'm here.  I am a life-long Tampa Bay resident with over a dozen years of local real estate experience. I love sharing my knowledge of Tampa Bay and giving others the help they need to make informed, confident real estate decisions.

We are laser focused on the real estate market and the many things that make buying and selling a home an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Buying A Home

My knowledge of the 55+ communities for Active Adults and Seniors is of great help to those moving to the Tampa Bay area. I have a specialized knowledge of both sides of Tampa Bay, I was raised in Pinellas County &  my wife Linda is a 5th generation Floridian. After marrying and completing UWF, we moved to Hillsborough County where we have lived for the past 40years. We bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise of not just about the area, but the specifics of the home buying process to help you. I have a team of professionals we work with, from Lenders, Home Inspectors to Title Companies to help make the process as simple and smooth as possible.

Real Estate is not the same everywhere. I have localized knowledge with up-to-date information that will serve you well in making the right choice in a home. Whether it is new construction or a re-sale home, you need representation by a knowledgeable professional who will look out for your best interest.

Selling a Home

When it is time to sell, you need an experienced professional who goes well beyond what the average agent will or can do. We use a proven, repeatable system backed by market research that can get you up to as much as 18% more money for your home than the average real estate methods do.

We use professional photography and videography that will highlight your home to its best advantage. We do a pin-point market analysis to price your home correctly from the start.

Marketing Matters

Our home marketing system and use of technology is second to none. We work constantly to improve our systems and processes. We stay up to date on the real estate market and technology needed to best serve our clients. And, as a result, we go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most Realtors.

Closing is Serious Work.

Once your home goes under contract we make sure that all the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed so you get all the money you are entitled to. We stay on top of the whole transaction and closing process to make sure that all moves along smoothly and timely. With us you get the help you need to navigate the selling and closing process smoothly and successfully and are kept up to date all along the way.
