How I Work

I love real estate and yearn for the next challenge. 

Questions about the market? – Ask me anything and I’ll get you real, practical numbers for your specific property – real estate can change when you cross the street!

Questions about buying and selling strategies? – It can get a little complicated, but nothing overwhelming if it’s explained well – and when it’s time to make the jump, I make sure you are confident and well-informed.

Concerns with the way Realtors behave? – Now we’re getting into some juicy stuff. That’s something I’ve been well versed in since the late 90’s helping in my dad’s office, and more recently while on the Board of Directors with the Hamilton-Burlington Association. Lots of good agents and brokers out there, and lots to watch out for – it’s just something you have to learn through relationships!

Unsure about some clauses in the paperwork? – Luckily, I’m a nerd – I constantly refresh my knowledge and read all the case law examples I can get my hands on – I welcome any challenge on any contract about any clause!

I love to give you value before you ever even hire me, and from there I let the results do the talking. I want my profession to be loved and respected, and I’m contributing the best way I know – add one ethical effective professional.

I’ve filled this website with tips and resources to help you quickly understand what you need to know — and how I deliver results.

I specialize in the Hamilton market – I grew up in a Real Estate family here, I’ve lived and breathed this market for over 25 years. No one knows this city, the way local negotiations work, and how to best buy and sell your home like I do. Any time you want information on the market or your property,  contact me. No obligation, no spam, EVER. Just good information.
