Meet the Agent

Re/Max 1st Advantage

I'm a veteran Real Estate agent (yep, I started in the business before cell phones) and have immersed myself for the last few years in the latest trends and technology. HOWEVER, more importantly, I believe that this a relationship business and look to build mutual trust so that you will be SO HAPPY you will refer your friends and family. Whether you are buying or selling, the goal is to move you forward to the next phase of your life...whether that be new homeowner or retiree looking to move to that vacation home.
I coach other Real Estate agents and write a blog at www.sellwithmeaning.com
I'm a financial conservative and a graduate of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. Let me help protect the equity in your house.
In my spare time, I bike, do non profit work both locally and overseas, and love to read and sit under trees. I'm on the Executive Council of www.bpeace.org.

I cover both Dauphin and Cumberland County
