About Me

I was born in New Jersey and lived in several different states growing up, as my father's work required frequent relocation. My father was President of Pepsi Cola for numerous years; he was my mentor and inspiration as he was a hard working and much respected leader. After completing high school at St. Mary's, Greenwich, CT. I did dual enrollment between Manhattanville College, Purchase, NY and Marymount College, Tarrytown, NY and earned a B.A. in Psychology and Special Education. Life after college took me to the Big Apple, where I enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life. To continue stimulating my intellect, a few years later, I went on to pursue a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Miami.

It is important for me to be able to take care of your needs and get what is best for YOU.  I may ask a lot of questions, but I'm a good listener. My business comes from referrals. Clients come back to me because they know their best interest is in the forefront of my actions. Selling or buying real estate ranks #7 in the 10 most stressful things in life. My goal is to keep your stress level down and the important way to do that is by communication and me keeping educated and abreast on what is happening in real estate.
