Q: What is the one thing that your clients should know about you? 

A: That I care.  

Of course, after more than 30 years in the business I bring a lot of assets to the table. I know the market; the contracts, other agents and inventory. And heaven knows I’ve seen pretty much every trick in the book. But what makes me effective–and what gets me out of bed in the morning really charged up–is understanding the impact my work has on my clients’ lives. 

No one moves for no reason. Home purchases and sales are high impact; stressful, time consuming and sometimes emotionally challenging. Although I work with a tremendously diverse group of clients–from returning foreign service officers to first-time buyers to downsizing seniors–what I’ve found again and again is that if we address the reasons behind the sale and/or purchase that the property piece typically falls neatly into place. 


If I take the time to listen to my clients and strive to understand their very particular motivations, hopes, and concerns, very positive outcomes follow. It’s pretty simple. 

Q: Is there a secret to success?  

A: I’m enormously flattered that so much of my business comes from referrals and proud to work in a broad range of areas and price points.  


I’m a big fan of everyone walking away happy, but I like to know that my clients’ priorities, whether price or terms, carried the day. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of making it all look easy.
