My past Real Estate experience, I had taken an interest in Helping First-Time Home Buyers. I learned the mortgage programs that worked best for my buyers, with them being very happy at closing. Knowing the mortgage programs as well or better than most loan originators, I was offered a position with a top 10 lender in 2003. As 2004 Rookie of the year, 90% of my business was from referrals. My experience gave me the tools to help home buyers over and above your typical loan originator. Knowledge, Communication, and personal care is what I provide, helping you enjoy the home buying adventure

I have a daughter, adopted son, 2 foster sons one special needs, an great wife and love spending as much time as possible with them. I have been organization president, selectman, youth football and baseball coach, along with being involved with law enforcement. The community is what I enjoy, making them laugh and just having a good old time.

Stop by and visit me anytime, everyone is welcome!!
