As a business owner myself, I understand what it takes to work those long hours and to take those risks. I am a military veteran who served in the United States Army and with an honorable discharge and the GI Bill, I was able to go to school to get a Bachelor of Science Degree in Occupational Therapy (OTR/L) and thereafter my Masters in Business Administration (MBA). My experience as the owner of a thriving home health agency as well as my education has given me an edge on my competing brokers. I can talk about the world of medicine and the world of business with an understanding of your needs to succeed.

I practiced as a clinician for 20 years and I have worked in almost every setting possible from acute medical hospitals to stand-alone therapy clinics. I have been privileged at having an opportunity of seeing both sides of the table - the owner's side and the employee side. I get the trials and tribulations that go with owning a business and I also understand the rewards of seeing your business prosper.

I believe that getting to know Healthcare Biz Brokers and getting to know me as "Your Broker" will help you in your successful journey of being that entrepreneur.

Finally, we are a full-service Real Estate brokerage using our experience, tools and knowledge to make sure that your transaction goes smoothly. You have your choice of Realtors and Brokerage Houses with a lot of enticing offers for you to list your home with them. We are not about creating a lot of unmet promises to try to get your listing. What we offer is our experience, knowledge and honest work to make sure that you have a successful sale of your lovely home. We want to help you get to that next stage in your life journey. Our methodology is simple, lets meet and create that unique strategy to help map out our sequence of events. It may start off with preparing the home for the sale which may mean talking with a contractor to spruce up the flooring, putting up a fresh coat of paint, patching up some dry wall, making some changes to the kitchen. What we do is look at those areas in your home that would multiply your return on investment, your ROI. We also will help you price your home based on a recent comparative market analysis (CMA) along with taking into account any upgrades or other goodwill that exists in your home. Once we are up on the active market with a positive blurb on the multiple listing service (MLS), we will create professional marketing materials to begin the next phase of the transaction - the marketing phase.
