Wow!!!! That's the only way to describe the current Real Estate market. Most home owners have been shocked by the declining values in their neighborhoods due in part to a shaky economy and loss of consumer confidence. Know what? We will survive. Over time, maybe very slowly, we will come-out of the economic malaise in which we find ourselves. And when this happens, home values will indeed rise once again. "So what", you ask. My point is that NOW is the time, especially for individuals who have never owned a home before, to get out there and take advantage of buying opportunities that haven't presented themselves in decades. Low interest rates + low prices + generous tax credits = the buying opportunity of the century!

I have been a Licensed Realtor since 1994. Real Estate was actually a third-career for me. Originally, I started out as a teacher of Business employed by the Grosse Pointe Public Schools. I taught at both South and North High Schools for a period of eleven years. During that time, I was a Cooperative Education Coordinator for the Marketing program. Upon leaving education, I founded and co-owned a large , Home Health Care company. As Financial Vice President, I helped the business to grow into a multi-million dollar concern employing over one-hundred. My interest in real estate began at this time when I was responsible for the planning and construction of a new company headquarters.
In 1994, my new interest in real estate led me to obtain a license in the State of Michigan and eventually begin working for Sine Realty, at that time, a relatively small brokerage. Over the passing years, Sine has become Sine & Monaghan Realtors - Real Living, one of the most successful real estate brokerages in Grosse Pointe. Our current three offices and one hundred agents allow us to service a five-county market with efficiency and ease.
Although I have Commercial clients, my true love is Residential property. Since 1994, I have assisted hundreds of clients in the sale or purchase of homes. Maybe it's the "teacher" in me, but I do enjoy working with first time buyers who often need "extra care" in their search for the perfect new home. Lots of looking, lots of questions, lots of hesitation - before a decision and purchase are made - that sums-up the first time buyer. I spend more time with them, but the satisfaction derived from the experience is well worth the trouble.
Whether they are "first-timers", referrals, or "long-time" clients, I do my best to provide the best of service to each and all.
