My real estate journey began in July 2018 when my prior employer unceremoniously gave me and my entire organization of 88 people a 2 hour notice that we had been outsourced. I had been contemplating a career change for a very long time, as the corporate office was not appealing to me and I really missed working with people. Real Estate had always held an interest to me, but a part-time effort was really not something I felt I would have been successful at. So upon ending my prior career I decided to take the Real Estate journey, and in fall of 2018 I enrolled in the New Jersey Licensed real estate agent program. I feel it was the best decision of my life.
My career has been one of negotiation and bringing people together. Prior to real estate I worked in customer service, in Information technology, first as a technician and engineer, later progressing through the ranks of management, client relations, project management, and later as a director where I spent my last 6 years. My personality and extensive experience managing, working with and working for people combined with the ability to help people realize their dreams and change their lives with a new home is what drives me and excites me for the future. There is nothing that makes me feel better than that moment when you're with a homebuyer and you just know you helped them fulfill their dream.
What led me to Better is the transformative approach to the market and the homebuying experience, the digital-first nature and seamless home financing. This is truly a game-changer and I am excited to be a part of this new model. I did extensive reading and dove into reviews and media before joining, and the culture is a perfect fit. I see nothing but amazing things for me and for Better Real Estate.
My coverage area is southern NJ, basically from Philadelphia to the beaches. It's also where I live, work, and play. When I'm not out assisting clients you'll find me running or cycling (I've completed 21 half marathons, 3 cycling centuries, and two triathlons), spending time with my family, catching home games of the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers or Sixers, or enjoying the Atlantic Ocean on the nearby Atlantic City beaches. I also have 5 children who keep me centered and focused on what is important, and oh yes I am faster on two feet or two wheels than all of them.
