As a Former Diamond Manufacturer, I Now Find Gems in Real Estate


Success in life is about passion and John Lennon wrote “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans."



Being a young 1st time home buyer in the era before Angie’s List and big box chains, I morphed into a do-it-yourself suburbanite. I was always fairly good with my hands, so I began to take on various projects, like adding closets, hanging wallpaper, pouring cement, even light plumbing and electrical jobs. Whether the undertakings were necessities or whims, I quickly found I had a real knack for them, and home improvement became “a labor of love.”



Real estate and construction were giving my original career choice a lot of emotional competition. Real Estate became a passion too and at the turn of the millennium manufacturing was forced to move offshore. This meant constant international travel, taking me around the world, from Belgium to Israel to China and India. A decade of globe-trotting took its toll, and I retired in 2009.



Two years later, my batteries recharged, I decided to pursue my other passion with renewed vigor. I earned my real estate license and I was now immersed in the residential universe, studying foundations, boundaries, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms with a passion. As in my prior career …..Listening , understanding, communicating and creating a successful strategy for my clients objectives was 1st and foremost..



Friends became clients, clients became friends, and soon the referrals were flowing. My retirement yielded to another full-time career, and today I’m having fun and getting paid for it. I was the recipient of the RE/MAX 100% Club Award in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018.
