I am a real estate enthusiast and enjoy helping people find their “place” in the world. I understand every person and family is different and requires a personalized solution. Whether it’s looking for a home, or a place to do business let me help you #findyourplace

I believe people make a community and it’s better when all its members can have their needs met. It’s important to find a home that gives you a sense of belonging with great community amenities like public transportation, shopping centers, parks and entertainment. Home is more than just a structure, it’s where family gathers, neighborhoods connect, and memories are made. I understand how life evolves and a move becomes necessary. I’ll work with you to list your home to get the best value and help you find your next home. Let's work together to #findyourplace

Not only is where you live important, but where you do business is equally important. Having worked in economic development for years, I understand a business's location directly effects its ability to compete. If it’s being close to freeways for customer and supply chain needs, lowering your operating costs or leveraging retail synergy. I can help you make the best real estate decision for your business. #findyourplace
