I’m not a Pittsburgh-born resident, but I’ve been here since 1995 and consider the city to be home. I was raised during the first Steelers dynasty and they became my team, even before Pittsburgh was my city! I moved to Western Pennsylvania, graduated from Geneva College, and just never left town. I was fully committed to raising my family here and becoming involved in the region. And I tell people, “Pittsburgh is the only city where you can call a wrong number and end up having a ten-minute conversation.” In short, I came here for professional reasons and stayed for the people, the sports, and the beautiful countryside.
My career as a real estate agent was born out of years of experience in sales, in several other industries. In these sales-oriented positions, I learned that I truly enjoy meeting new people every day. I also thrive on the challenge of finding ways to help clients quickly solve any problems that could arise as we work through deals. In short, I aim to create positive experiences for everyone, as the contracts are signed and my clients have gotten the outcome that I was tasked with facilitating for them.
My wife and I have a blended family of six (mostly grown) kids, including two sons serving the country in the US Army. Not surprisingly, I am a supporter of our service members and veterans. As part of my work as an agent, I’ve got a commitment to representing military veterans in helping them to find homes where they can raise their families and make Pittsburgh their permanent residence.
In my free time, I’m an avid golfer and use the winter months for watching sports. As for the future…very soon, my wife will be joining me in the office as we pursue working as a husband-and-wife team. This will be an exciting development for both of us and will allow us to “hand off the ball” to another trusted teammate, so that clients can experience seamless service in their representation and will have access to nearly 24/7 support.
