I have lived in Closter, New Jersey for 14 years and have two amazing boys. I literally work 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, because I truly love what I do. The smile on my buyer’s face when they close on that home they have been longing for, or the relief and happiness my seller exudes after I sell their home, makes all the hard work worth it. Whether buying or selling a home, real estate can be a complex and stressful process -- one that I guide my clients through expertly and painlessly, from beginning to end. 


EXPERIENCE – With the kind of know-how and judgment that comes from years of successfully selling real estate and negotiating deals, I can handle the most complicated real estate transactions skillfully and strategically.


COMMITMENT – To do a better job for my clients and stay ahead in a very competitive field, I never stop learning and making critical distinctions, keeping my finger on the pulse of all aspects of the rapidly changing marketplace in Bergen County and beyond. It is also important to me to understand each of my client’s needs, as no two are the same. I make sure those subjective needs are met. 


HARD WORK – I work full-time (and then some) at my profession. Clients can always reach me easily and can count on both a quick, helpful response, and for me to always go the extra mile.  


INTEGRITY – I have my clients’ best interests in mind. People trust me with what is often their largest and most important asset, their home. That is a responsibility that I take very seriously, and it is why I give 110%.


RESULTS – When it comes to buying or selling a home, finding a skilled real estate professional who is looking out for your best interests, and who knows how to protect them, is essential. I work hard, work smart and get my clients the positive – and profitable – results that they desire, and deserve.
