“...I did everything with that great mad joy you get when you return to New York City.” - Jack Kerouac’s Lonesome Traveler
For me, this quote not only sums up the spirit of our life in “New York, New York,” but also captures the vibrant nature of our unique marketplace which is like no other in the world.
To successfully navigate this ever-changing cityscape is to surround yourself with key experienced, proven professionals who best understand your real estate needs and goals and how to successfully relate them to the ins and outs of our small town.
With 20 years of experience, I have earned the confidence of countless clients who have entrusted me with their own as well as friends and family’s varying, ongoing real estate needs. This has enabled me to build a thriving business on referrals and repeat clients, each of whom credit my straight-forward and honest approach for their continued loyalty. I have also gained the respect of colleagues for my willingness to roll up my sleeves and jump into the trenches. There is no better way to educate yourself than getting out there and develop an intimate understanding of every property you can to increase the likelihood of securing clients’ perfect home.
Along the way, I have been recognized throughout the industry for achieving outstanding results:
Ranked nationally by REAL Trends as one of "America's Best Real Estate Agents” for avg. sales price of $4.350M.
Sold a single family Townhouse faster than any other on the Upper West Side over $10M.
I believe in a collaborative approach to selling, as many of the best ideas come from my sellers. Collective thinking brings creativity, innovation and results, ultimately leading to meticulous execution throughout the sales process to deliver what each seller expects and deserves.
I live with my wife and daughter on the Upper West Side, the neighborhood I have called home for the past 23 years. From our co-op, where I have served on the Board of Directors for the last three years, I can walk or run in Central Park with my family, watch a concert at the Beacon Theater, and frequent countless other neighborhood institutions ranging from Café Luxembourg (for my favorite Luxemburger with a Red) to Épicerie Boulud for merguez and some suds to even Grays Papaya (for…well, a superior dog).
I was originally born in Richmond, Virginia and grew up in Maryland, just one mile south of the Mason Dixon line. After graduating with a degree in Mathematical Economics from Hampden-Sydney College, the 10th oldest school in the country, I spent 5 years in Washington, DC working as a financial consultant. I also studied at The National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts and I’m a former actor who once moonlighted as a stand-up comedian. Many years ago, I authored APPLE PIE - The Real Ingredients for Buying and Selling Your Slice.
