More About Me

Business Philosophy

Successful client consultation and representation through knowledge, experience and communication.

In our market of ever changing home values it is becoming increasingly difficult to assess the current market value of a property, either for the buyer looking to purchase at a fair price or pricing for a seller to assure a competitive, timely sale. Fortunately, my financial and analytical background and experience, coupled with today's databases of information supplied by Coldwell Banker, the MLS and tax records, enable me to negotiate your purchase or sale assuring a fair price and favorable terms.

My affiliation with Coldwell Banker Realty, and in particular, the Biltmore/Paradise Valley Office, afford me the best in training, support and marketing tools in the industry. The Biltmore/Paradise Valley Office is consistently the #1 Coldwell Banker office in Arizona and among the top 10% nationwide. Additionally, my team of mortgage lenders, title and escrow and home inspectors are tops!

By choosing me and Coldwell Banker as your partners for residential real estate, you are assured of a worry free experience.

Personal Background

A native Phoenician with family settling in Arizona in the 1890's, I was educated in Phoenix public schools and Arizona State University. My financial career started in public accounting, obtaining a CPA certificate in the State of California. Subsequent experiences include positions of Controller, Chief Financial Officer, Executive Vice President and President of public and private companies, including NYSE and NASDAQ traded companies.

Industries included home building, commercial property management and development, consumer finance, insurance, hotel management and development, information technology, real estate sales and syndication and mortgage lending, and successful development of condominium projects. Married to my high school sweetheart, we have two children and three grandchildren, and when not absorbed in Real Estate, my passion, I enjoy spending time with family, gardening, fishing, Model train collecting and an occasional round of golf.
