My family and I are transplants from Michigan. During my working life I have enjoyed being a high school teacher ( in Muskegon, Michigan ) where I was the director of a very active speech and debate program. Working with students gave me the opportunity to have a positive impact on their lives and maybe a little contribution toward their adult lives! It was a tremendously rewarding time and I have many fond memories of it. I also hear from some of them as they have gone on in their careers, start families and become productive citizens ! From there I went into sales with Pitney Bowes ( the postage meter people ) and worked directly with businesses of all sizes. Through hard work and applying the skills I had learned in my own debate experience I learned how to problem solve and find the best solution. My hard work paid off and I was promoted to the position of Sales Manager. While in that position I developed a small but effective training system for my sales reps. That system, and the dedicated efforts of my reps, enabled us to become the top producing sales team in our region ! It was a proud day for our team and larger office ! After several additional promotions my wife and I started a non-profit adoption agency in San Diego. We worked to find and match mothers-to-be with couples wishing to adopt. The program focused on the needs of the birth moms and included free lifetime counseling. For the adoptive couples it provided a chance to find the only thing missing in their lives - a family ! We still hear from many of these families and it will always be something which will stand out as a wonderful way to do the right thing for all concerned ! Very emotional. very worthwhile !
My work ethic sets me apart from most Realtors ! I work long hours to find outstanding properties for my clients and know how to get to a successful close. Fort Myers Beach is a very friendly, laid back place to live, work and play. My family and I are active in various Fort Myers Beach civic programs. If you want an honest, hard working Realtor call me now.

As a resident of Fort Myers Beach and a full time realtor I am familiar with the island and surrounding area. Much of my time has been spent learning the condo/hotel and pre-construction markets. Both of these markets demand greater depth of knowledge and investment expertise. My strong business background allows me to aggressively represent clients whether buying or selling. My long involvement in debate coupled with a business background allows me to clearly identify the goals important to my clients. Keeping those goals clearly in focus helps me provide a higher level of satisfaction to my buyers and sellers ! I promise to do the same for you. Hard work, long hours ! Century 21 International just notified our office that I finished the year as the top selling agent in the office and among the Top25 in the South Florida Region.
The multiple " Top Producer Award (s)" presented to me by Century 21 shows the dedication to my profession and customers . Our Century 21 office is a top producing and highly honored member of the largest real estate network in the world. Each of our agents brings a unique insight and professional focus to our office.
