Experience is the key. I've had over 40 years of experience in marketing, sales and sales management in a variety of businesses including my most recent venture into real estate. I've lived and worked in a number of different areas of the US, Canada and Europe and bought and sold houses all over the country. These hands-on experiences have given me an appreciation for the challenges and opportunities of home ownership--and also a special perspective of just how important the right home investment decision can be. Born and raised in the New York/New Jersey area and graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1970 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. A 20 year career as part owner and VP of Marketing and Sales for a Maryland wine wholesale and importing company preceded my move to St Augustine and entry into the real estate business as a proud member of the Watson Team. Now six years residing in St Augustine. Just about everyone I know here agrees it's a great place to live and work, not to mention invest! Special interests of mine include animals--my wife and I currently have three dogs and a cat in the family. We've owned small farms in the past, cared for livestock and chickens and spent many years volunteering in pet rescue. And I've been known to sneak in the occasional round of golf on one of our great local courses. Thinking of moving to the St Augustine area? Please call or email me with your particular interests or any questions you may have about our area. First-time home buyers are particularly welcome.
