from SE Michigan, the Great Lakes State. I began training for my real estate career at a very early age. Growing up in a large family in the 1960's, my family owned rental units. I loved collecting rents the from the tenants- I was usually rewarded by an elderly lady, Mrs. Estep, with a piece of chocolate! (That may have helped; Who doesn't love chocolate?) My Uncle was a very successful luxury home builder and land developer in my hometown. I purchased my first home at the age of 24, right out of college. After having that experience, I decided I wanted to change careers and sell real estate. After all, I had grown up in the "business"!
I began my career with Coldwell Banker Real Estate in 1987. Sears owned CB. I worked hard, read everything I could get my hands on, attended seminars like Zig Ziglar, Roger Butcher, and Danielle Kennedy to name a few. I joined an investment group. Everyone I met, I talked real estate. My first year I sold 42 homes and was named "Coldwell Bankers Rookie of the Year" for the Eastern Division of the United States - Through out my career, I have continually enhanced my skills and knowledge I provide clients through education and by keeping abreast of industry news, trends, laws, and technology. My foundation is built upon integrity, honesty, knowledge, service, care and a commitment to provide a life-long relationship. I specialize in marketing and sales of luxury, lake front, new construction, and resale residential properties in Novi, Northville, Commerce, South Lyon, Milford, White Lake, Highland, Brighton, Plymouth, Wolverine Lake, Walled Lake, West Bloomfield and surrounding communities in SE Michigan.
Our homes are lifetime investments ranking highly among my clients' most important financial investments. I provide you the experience,education, tools and venues to reach a successful result.
