I would like to begin by welcoming you. I hope that you will find an abundance of information and tools to help you with your real estate needs. Of course, if you have any additional questions that are not answered here, please feel free to contact me. I am always available to answer questions or give suggestions about your real estate related matters.
I would like to give you some background information about me, my family, my career, and the team of professionals I have working with me.
I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri in 1980. Prior to selling real estate, I excelled in the Construction Management field for ten years. This experience has helped a great deal with my real estate career due to the organizational, communication, and negotiating skills I gained. I also use my experience in Construction Management to assist my clients that purchase new construction homes. My presence from the rough wall through the final quality control walk-through allows my clients to feel assured that they are purchasing a structurally sound home. This is an expertise that no other agent in the area can provide.
After leaving Construction Management I began selling real estate in the suburbs of Detroit. I have been a licensed Realtor for over thirteen years. Throughout my career I have been in the TOP 1% OF ALL COLDWELL BANKER SALES ASSOCIATES INTERNATIONALLY! Here are a few other statistics that prove my level of dedication to the real estate industry that may interest you:
- TOP 1% NATIONWIDE IN SALES
TOP TEN SALES ASSOCIATES, REGIONALLY, NORTHERN REGION (19 States)
- #1 sales agent in the Northville Coldwell Banker Schweitzer office!
- Member of the #1 Coldwell Banker office in Michigan!
- Member of the Circle of Excellence (twelve consecutive years)
- Member of the International President's Premier Club (twelve consecutive years)
- Recipient of the Founder's Award (twelve consecutive years)
- Named in Crain's Detroit Business Top 40 under 40 for 1995
- Named in Who's Who in America 2003
- Bachelors of Science degree in Civil Engineering
- CMMS & CMRS Relocation Certifications.
I have been married to my lovely wife Debi for 23 years. We have lived in the surrounding area for over 23 years and we found it a wonderful community to raise our children in. Debi enjoys being involved in many volunteer opportunities in the area, such as, youth organizations, shelters, and raising money to aid abused children. Our son, Jeremy, was the goalie for the Novi High School Varsity Wildcats, and now attends Western Michigan University. Our eldest daughter Megan enjoyed training horses. She competed in Michigan and Kentucky. She was an integral part of the Novi High School Equestrian Team. Megan is actively studying at the University of Michigan. Our youngest daughter, Sara, was a captain of the golf team at Novi High School and is now attending the University of South Florida. As much as I enjoyed the community activities that I was a part of because of my children, Debi and I are now enjoying being "empty-nesters".
Part of the joy of having the children away at college is the time it has freed up in my schedule. I have been able to devote additional resources to my business and have seen the results of that dedication. This is promising to be one of the most productive years of my long career. Being part of the process, of helping families buy and sell their home, has solidified my reasoning for becoming a Realtor.
When you become part of my active family of clients I will guarantee to you that you will have frequent and direct contact with me. In addition, due to my construction background early on, I become your Realtor for life with assistance on all your real estate needs and questions as well as referring my clients to skilled professionals needed in other professions for years to come. Unlike many other top-producing agents in the area, I made the decision to maintain a "hands-on" approach to my business. I will call you once a week to update you on the market. I am available by pager or cell phone at any other time. In order to maintain this high level of service to my clients, I have employed three licensed buyer agents to assist me if I have a scheduling conflict, and two licensed administrative assistants to handle the daily office duties and paperwork.
