Q – What do you like best about working in Real Estate?
A-The best part of being a real estate agent for me is seeing the joy on buyers and sellers faces once they’ve completed their real estate transaction.
Q-What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the business?
A-I’m very passionate about my work. When someone I know buys or sells a home and I’m not involved in the transaction I often feel hurt.
Q-What advice would you give someone that is thinking about venturing into Real Estate?
A-Hit the ground running. Be ready for the many challenges that will come with the job and don’t sweat the small stuff. This is a very competitive business and to be successful one must commit a great deal of time and energy.
Q-Do you have any advice for First Time Home Buyers?
A-The very first thing a first time home buyer should do is talk with a lender and get pre-approved. Once you are pre-approved you will know what price range you can afford and how much of a mortgage payment you are comfortable with. Then find a real estate agent you connect with that has experience. Buying a home is a big investment and you want someone on your side that knows what they are doing. If you don’t have an agent then call me 😛
Q-When you aren’t working, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
A-I have many hobbies: bike riding, motorcycle riding, swimming, golfing, working in the yard, and most of all spending time with my family.
Q-What’s your favorite part of this area and why?
A-Northwest Ohio has much to offer. We have the Toledo Zoo, The Toledo Art Museum, a thriving downtown with many fun places to go like a Mud Hens game, a Walleye game or a concert. There are many restaurants to tempt your palate such as Byblos or Ventura’s. The area has fantastic metro-parks and so much more.
Q-What do you consider the area’s best kept secret?
A-This will not likely be a secret to locals however to anyone not from the area the fact that we are positioned on Lake Erie. In addition we are a short drive to many large cities such as Detroit 1 hrs, Cleveland 2.5 hrs, Columbus 2.5 hrs, Cincinnati 3 hrs, Chicago 4 hrs. and lets not forget Cedar Point… Ride On!
Q-Anything else you’d like your clients to know about you?
A-When you hire me to help you with a real estate transaction I’m not going to be your salesman. I will be your real estate consultant. I will be with you every step of the process and will give 100 percent to ensure your satisfaction.
