Let me help you with your real estate needs.

Whether you are looking for your first home, relocating, need  a larger home or downsizing, I can help you with all real estate needs.  I have designed and built a passive solar home, remodeled a nineteenth century mansion and have personally bought and sold homes for over 25 years.  I also currently own rental properties. Let me help you to make buying or selling real estate a positive experience.

Personal Background

When my wife and I moved to the Capital Region over 30 years ago, we were very fortunate to get a furnished apartment at a local resort.  We were living very well with all the ammenities a resort has to offer.  Yet as good as we had it, we decided that home ownership would be a better investment and give us a better place to start a family. We quickly learned the reality of buying real estate.  After looking at a few homes, we found what we thought was the perpect home and it might have been had the well not gone dry before we closed on it.  We quickly realised the importance of home inspections and not letting just the emotional side choose the perfect house.  Not long after we did find a perfect  2 bedroom starter home with mountain views.   This experience led me to getting my real estate license.  My wife  and I were both teaching full time and as the family stared to grow, I had to let my license lap because there were not enough hours in the day.  But the knowledge I gained I put to use as we moved on to bigger houses, including building our dream house, a passive solar house.  As my teaching career wound down I was happy to once again jump into real estate full time.

Servicing the Capital Region

I have lived and worked in the Capital Region for over 35 years and am very happy to call it home.  We are fortunate that we live in an area that within 30 minutes we can enjoy city lf in Albany with it's arts and entertainment, to rural country life in small towns such as Poestenkill in Rensselaer County, to suburban areas such as Delmar. I have worked with clients in areas from Saratoga Springs, to Greenville in Greene County with it's majestic Catskill Mountain views.  Having lived in many differerent areas from rural to suburban to inner city, I can grasp the advantages and short comings of each.  I never recommend where someone should live but rather help my clients by giving them the information they need to make a choice that's good for them and their families. Use my professional and personal experience help you to make the right choice in finding or selling your home..
