My real estate career really started without a license.... about 25 years ago I worked for a company that ran seminars. Part of my job was to rent space, hire a speaker, then get real estate agents to attend. Mike Ferry & Danielle Kennedy are a couple names Realtors may recognize. Besides listening to the seminars 100 times, often I would be shuffling the speakers to & from the airport & meeting them for dinner. One time I was stuck in a traffic jam with Mike Ferry for 3 hours! Needless to say I was the most 'trained' real estate agent there ever was prior to getting a license!
Since 1987 I have been luckier than I deserve. I have about 60 listings sell a year & a team that sells about 100 homes/year. We're a small company & every clients success is paramount to us. We specialize in a small area of Bergen County, NJ.
My claim to fame my be that I'm successful yet able to take time off. I enjoy traveling with my lovely bride of 17 years & two beautiful daughters. Also attending seminars on self improvement, time management & real estate. Of course my terrific staff makes this possible but I am the one who set this whole thing up!
Whether you're a Realtor or just looking for some real estate guidance, It would make my day if I could be of service to you in any way.
