Personal Interests

I believe you need to strike a balance between work and your private life. I enjoy going to Long Island's State Parks, whether it's to explore or take a walk on the beach or to just experience what nature has to offer. The parks I go to regularly are Jones Beach, Robert Moses, Captree, Planting Fields Arboretum, Sands Point Preserve. Other parks such as Morgan Park in Glen Cove, Old Westbury Gardens and Caleb Smith State Park in Smithtown are also  'Go To' Parks.

My Wife and I enjoy Kayaking in Manhasset Bay Waters in Port Washington, weather permitting. I also fish in these same waters for fish such as Flounder, Bluefish and Striped Bass. Walkng through the towns of Port Washington and Manorhaven is one of our favorite activities on a Saturday or Sunday. We frequently walk along Sheets Creek and end up at the town Dock or up along Main Street. Sitting on a bench in Sunset Park during the warmer weather sipping on Iced Coffee is a 'Treasured Moment'.

There are too many restaurants, stores and neighborhood events to list that my wife and I ienjoy going to in Port Washington and the surrounding towns of Manhasset, Plandome and Sands Point.

What I like best about where I live is the vibrancy of the local people, year-long events, the restaurants and stores, and mostly, The Waterfront.


Specialties

I LOVE the Enitire Real Estate Business; however, I decided to  devote my abilities to better   help my Clients/Customers through Specializations.  These are:

  • CBR (Certified Buyer Representative). I believe Buyers, not just Sellers, need Representation. My job is to provide Service by educating the Buyer Client and to advise them throughout the home buying process, especially the First-Time Home Buyer.
  • SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist). I became involved with the Mature Individual mainly because there is insufficient information available to them. I also help Seniors to navigate through the real estate marketplace and make it less confusing.  I'm involved as an advocate for the 55 Community through volunteer efforts and being part of the political process.
  • RSSP (Realtor Short Sales Professional). The reason behind me getting this designation was to help people who were overwhelmed by their current financial situation. I help to take out the fear by letting the homeowner know that bad things happen to good people. If you owe more on your mortgage than your house is worth and have trouble meeting your financial obligations to pay your mortgage and living expenses, then we need to talk. I believe in preserving your Dignity and the need to do the 'Right Thing'.
  • Relocation - I am a member of the Relo Team at Laffey Fine Homes and we can assist in finding a home for you wherever you decide to live for whaever reason.

Personal Background

     I currently reside in Port Washington, Nassau County (Long Island), NY and have been living here for the past 5 years. Prior to this, I have lived in Douglas Manor, Queens, NY for over 30 years. Other areas where I have or my family has lived, include the towns of North Flushing, Queens NY, Levittown, Nassau County NY and Hauppauge. Suffolk County NY. Growing up, I thought my middle name was 'U-Haul'. By living entirely on Long Island, I have grown to love what the 'Island' has to offer. If I didn't work as a Realtor, working for the Long Island Board of Tourism would be a natural fit.

     My family ancestry is one that I'm very proud of, as it dates back to the earliest times of this country. In fact, I have one ancestor that is buried in Valley Forge and the other at Arlington Cementary. Two of my ancestors served 2 Presidents, one being a Scout reporting to President Lincoln and the other, a Master Confectioner selling his goods to the Roosevelt (Teddy) Family at Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay, Long Island, NY.


Professional Background

     I have been a Realtor with over 5 years experience. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was in business as an owner/chef of a catering business for 10 years. My company was named 'New Amsterdam Caterers' based in Bayside, Queens. My business was the manufacture of fresh cold canapes/hors d'oeuvres and delivered to the restaurant/hotel industry as well as to celebrities, politicians and special events.

     I was educated in 'Culinary Arts' in NYC and worked as a Chef/Executive Chef in various restaurants and hotels for 15 years. During this period, I developed my organizational skills, professionailism and a strong work ethic and brought them forward into the real estate industry.

Professional Interests

     My Professional Interests involve my work as a Realtor and as a Community Activist to help better the lives of residents that live in the areas I work within. I help counsel the 55 Market (Seniors) and their Decision-Makers to understand the hurdles and obstacles they face in today's real estate marketplace. I also help to provide information and advice to Caregivers as they cope with the daily stresses of providing care for their loved ones. By providing a useful Website, I can reach and help thousands of Mature individuals and their families as they navigate this turbulent housing market and provide pertinent information.

     One of my Websites that I enjoy giving to Home Buyers and Home Sellers, allows the Consumer to see what is happenning in Real Estate, Nationally and Locally. Whether you're a First-Time Home Buyer, Upsizing or Downsizing, you'll be able to see a Real Estate Overview of Stats and Trends for the past 5 years. I also provide a 'Housing Trends Newsletter' that gives up-to-date information on the current real estate market.
