For some reason, lines like this have been showing up in my life lately. I have been having an absolutely amazing time these past few months getting this company up and running, and it has been an incredibly fun, exciting, humbling and rewarding experience. I know the ride has just begun, but I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has supported us and believed in us. We can never thank you enough for pushing us in the right direction and holding us to a higher standard. IT is because of you, our friends, family, business associates and clients, that we continue to grown and improve. Thank you so much.
I also want to thank those who told us to give up, or told us that it is impossible. I get such great pleasure in proving to myself that anything is possible.

We have all heard the line, "The most important thing about real estate is location, location, location". In many cases, I completely agree, BUT there is one other extremely important factor that needs to be very carefully considered when looking to purchase a home, or when you are considering selling your home.
As a real estate professional for the past 15 years, I have learned so much about the business of real estate, the business of financing, the emotion and psychology of buying or selling a home, and the details that go along with all of them. Believe it or not, finding the right home, or the right buyer for your home, is sometimes the easiest part of the process. All too often, the most difficult piece of the real estate transaction, for buyers, sellers and agents involved is not the marketing, advertising or systems used to sell or buy a home, it is the PEOPLE who are handling the transaction. The agents who are chosen to represent the parties involved i ...

So why such a negative headline? Why not, it got your attention, didn't it?
I'll start by saying I smoked my last cigarette on Monday, May 28, 2012 at approximately 9PM. I didn't QUIT on that day…… (read on).
That's not exactly what you would expect to hear from someone who has been a smoker for over 25 years, and has tried to quit at least 5 times in the past 3 years alone, is it?
Here are some facts….I'm overweight (225 pounds as of June 1, 2012),
- I have a tendency to have some pretty bad eating habits.
- I clearly don't exercise enough.
- I smoked like a chimney.
There's a lot of negative in these comments, and the surprising thing about that is that I tell my family, every day, "Try to find something positive in everything". So on to the positive.
Last week, I read a tweet that linked to a Facebook post that linked to a blog, that made me think and brought about a change in my thought process. Thank you S ...

To some, this might be a “re-announcement”, but all future posts will be new content……
Just over 2 weeks ago, I got to experience another new beginning. I love new beginnings, not because they put closure on the past, but because in the future, "Anything is possible" (Thanks to my coach and friend Brian Moses for instilling that in me almost 10 years ago). We can't change the past, but we can learn from it, and I love nothing more than an opportunity to learn.
After some great conversations, I decided to partner with an old friend, someone I truly admire and respect in the local real estate world, Rosanna Piazza. I believe its true, that you become WHO you surround yourself with, and I couldn’t choose a better person to associate with, locally. Rosanna is not only a great broker, she is one of hardest working, dedicated and honest sales people I have had the pleasure to be around. In addition to that, she is jus ...
