You’ll find that I am a skilled negotiator with strong financial skills, as well as a creative marketing expert. As a seller, I can get your home the exposure it deserves with an effective marketing plan. For buyers, I can provide a wealth of information about local housing options, price ranges, schools, transportation and more. My entrepreneurial management style serves my clients well, and allows me to provide them with the best service possible. I welcome your call or visit to the Montclair Office.
