I am a full time real estate professional and a life long resident of the Iowa Quad Cities. I am positive, sincere and dedicated to helping people buy and sell all types of real estate.
As serious as I am about my profession, I strive to build relationships and provide great service to my clients. I believe knowledge, professionalism and drive are all qualities one should look for when choosing a REALTOR®, and pride myself on having.
My success is due to hard work, superior ethics and a can't-be-beat service. Unlike many Realtors in the Quad Cities, this is my full time job and not a part time hobby. Real estate is my sole livelihood.
Outside of selling real estate I enjoy boating, golfing and anything to do with home repair and remodel.

Areas of Expertise
All aspects of residential real estate including investment property, new construction and Buyer & Seller relocation. I am the first in the Quad City market to earn the EcoBroker Certification. EcoBroker is an education and certification program for real estate professionals who care about the environment and want to promote energy-efficient and "green" features in homes and buildings.
As a Certified EcoBroker I can help you live a little greener in a healthier, more comfortable home, and save you some money in the process. Whether you're buying, selling, or investing, my energy and environmental training qualifies me to address home ownership issues from an environmentally aware point of view including: energy efficient heating and cooling, indoor air quality, ventilation, radon testing, use of low VOC products and more.
As an EcoBroker I'm also green with a purpose. I know how to highlight and market the energy efficient and cleaner features of you home to help you sell it at the price you want in the time frame you require. If your looking to buy, I can find a home for you too, and show you how you can easily add green features to make it more comfortable, lower your monthly bills and make the world a little better place at the same time.
I will listen to your needs and wants to establish our goals and objectives. We work as a team to meet the goals and you will continually be in the loop during the entire process. In this fast paced market, I believe communication is the key to meeting our goals and building our relationship.
