CERTIFIED NOCATEE SPECIALIST
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio where I attended Cincinnati Country Day School and the University of Cincinnati while majoring in accounting. I later raised my family on a farm near Batesville, Indiana for over ten years along with our horses, goats and Mastiff dogs...a great life.
I was once SVP of the Commercial Lending Division of a major Midwest bank and I have owned various businesses involved in travel, publishing and real estate development. My wife of 45 years and I have five children including our two biological daughters and three adopted foster sons. We have three granddaughters who also live in FL. My real estate experience includes the past ownership of one of the largest independent real estate companies in the country with nearly 900 agents located in Ohio. I have also sold real estate on the small island of Deer Isle, Maine in a two man real estate office. Thank you Dutch from Deer Isle Properties. I have sold real estate in Vermont with Lang McLaughry Spera the largest and best brokerage firm in VT and Northern New England.
The relocation of a family member brought us to the St. Augustine/Ponte Vedra area where we currently reside in Nocatee in Del Webb Ponte Vedra. History has taught me when I move to seek out the best full service firm in the marketplace so naturally I affiliated with the nationally recognized real estate firm of Watson Realty Corp. servicing Northeast Florida and Southern Georgia. Over the last 30 years in real estate I have sold farms, million dollar mansions, condominiums, large tracts of land, one mobile home and everything in between. I have been relocated, helped those who were being relocated, worked with many first time home buyers and several wishing to retire.
My skills start with being a good listener and finish with being a tireless advocate of my customers and clients desired real estate goals thru the closing and beyond. I hold the respected CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) designation and the LMC (Loss Mitigation Certification) to assist my customers facing the challenges of short sales and foreclosures.
