Acredited Buyer Representative (ABR)
Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)
Being a lifelong resident of Monroe County, I am very familiar with the Poconos and surrounding areas. I have seen the Poconos go from a quiet, summer vacation spot to a bustling, all season designation. Lower home prices and lower taxes have made the Poconos a desirable area for people to live in fulltime or enjoy a vacation home. I specialize in representing my clients in the purchases and sales of residential properties.
I have achieved my Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) designation allowing me to represent my buyers with the most specialized and updated information. This designation also provides me with access to the Real Estate Buyer Agency Council (REBAC) website. This site has a link for current information for home buyers. I've also achieved my Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation giving me a thorough understanding of complex issues in today's real estate industry and knowledge of foreclosure avoidance options available to home owners. This certification also enables me to assist buyers who want to purchase a short sale or forclosed property. I keep up-to-date on the market trends and with continuing education in real estate courses.
I am an energetic, friendly, hard-working real estate professional who always puts my clients' interests first. I will guide you through every step of your real estate transaction. I have been a member of the West End Rotary Club (a service organization) since 1993 and have held the positions of President, President-Elect, Secretary and several Director's positions. Currently I am serving as the club's Secretary. I have been awarded the Paul Harris Fellow Award twice and have received the Rotarian of the Year and Service Above Self Awards. I am active with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Light the Night.
We are a full service team representing both buyers and sellers in residential, multi-family, lots/land, farm and commercial purchases and sales.

What Makes The Poconos Unique?
"The only thing missing is the ocean. The Poconos of Pennsylvania literally have everything else." This is a common statement, said on one form or another by vacationers, developers and even filmmakers who have all found enchantment in the area.
World class ski resorts, casinos, water and adventure parks compliment the famed Pocono International Raceway. The economy bustles with famous outlet shops, world class restaurants and legendary golfing resorts as Shawnee on the Delaware.
Still not enough? Then tour blue ribbon wineries, a cavalcade of flea markets and celebrity class antique shops or take advantage of top rated skydiving clinics or take in a show at the legendary Sherman Theater in beautiful downtown Stroudsburg.
All of this is off route 80, and just ninety minutes from the George Washington Bridge. Major airports are just 50 minutes north or south...a new life is within reach in every direction!
Are You Aware?
The Delaware River cuts through major national forests that outline the Poconos area. Beautiful lakes for boating and fishing pick the wide ranging countryside. Beautiful small, historic towns still hold their country charm and all of it makes this area of Northeast Pennsylvania one of the most sought-after places to live.
