Bio

The Right Real Estate Agent means having an agent who is committed to helping you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. It also includes helping you to understand each step of the buying or selling process. This commitment level has helped me to build a remarkable track record of delivering results.

I am a Licensed Realtor® in Maryland and Pennsylvania with 32 Years of Experience. My specialties include: Residential, Multi-Family, Lot/Land, Farm & Commercial. I settle approximately 50-70 properties per year. I am a Member of the Carroll County REALTORS® Association. I have earned several awards through the years including Lifetime Achievement, Hall of Fame, and Realtor of the Year '2017'.

Nothing is more exciting to me than the gratifying feeling I get from helping people meet their real estate needs. You can count on me to always do what's in your best interest. I pride myself on being honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable in the real estate market. I know how important it is to find your dream home or get the best offer for your property. I make it my responsibility to help you achieve these goals.

I was born and raised in Carroll County. In my spare time, I have volunteered with the Carroll Hospital Center & Carroll Hospice Fund Raising Committees. I have supported the 4-H Program, where my son Benjamin was Mr. 4-H in the year 2000. Other organizations I support include: Local Fire Depts., Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, March of Dimes, Red Cross, YMCA, and Carroll County School Fundraisers.
