Certifications

I have a Bachelor's degree (BS) in Computer Science.  I also have a Master's degree (MBA) in Business Administration.  My first career was as a Technical / IT professional in the Computer Industry.  I worked as a IT / Computer Programmer, Systems Analyst, Computer Trainer and a IT Project Director.  After 5+ years I decided I needed a little more fun in my career so I started selling Real Estate part-time.

I have sold Real Estate since 1985.  I am originally from Southern Indiana where I sold Real Estate for Century 21 in Evansville Indiana. 

I moved to Orlando Florida in 1992 where I received my Florida Real Estate Salesperson license.  In 2001, I received my Florida Real Estate Broker's License.  Then in 2002, I received my Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.  Only 3% of all USA Real Estate Professionals obtain the CRS designation.  It takes many classroom courses plus 75+ Real Estate Transactions in a 5 year period in Real Estate to get the CRS designation.  I have also obtained my Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation.  I also have my Graduate, Realtor's Institute (GRI) designation.  I sold Real Estate in Orlando Florida until 2006 when I moved to The Villages Florida. 

I sold Real Estate during 2006 & 2007 for The Villages Developer (Properties of The Villages) where I received extensive training from The Villages Developer to learn everything and anything about lifestyle / recreation / golf and homes.  After the downturn in the Real Estate market in 2007, The Villages laid off 50+ of us Sales Representatives.  Since then I have been selling Real Estate as an Independent REALTOR® in The Villages Florida.  Did you know that the developer's Sales Representations cannot show REALTOR® listings in The Villages?  Why?  They are licensed real estate agents not a REALTOR®.  They can only show you new homes & preowned homes that have "Properties of The Villages" on the sign.  "Properties of The Villages" always represents the SELLER of a New or Preowned home.  So the Buyers have "No Representation"!

I can show you any home listed by any MLS Real Estate Company (eXp Realty, RE/MAX, ERA, Realty Executives, Coldwell Banker, Etc.) plus any For Sale By Owner Homes.  Why is this information important?  As a Buyer, I think you should have representation when buying a home!  I have an extensive knowledge base of everything The Villages Florida offers in lifestyle and home choices.  Please trust me when I state that I have more knowledge than most other REALTORS® in the area about The Villages Florida.

As a Seller of a home here in The Villages Florida, I am sure you want your home to be "JUST SOLD" instead of  "Just Listed"!  Since 2006, I have only had 14 homes expire (not sell) during the listing period.  I do not think any other Real Estate Agent would be able to show you the stats to prove they had less 14 homes expire since 2006.  Do you want to work with a Real Estate Consultant that will help you make all the decisions about timing and coordinating your move?  I will be glad to work through your unique moving situations.  You will NOT be treated as just another Seller which some Real Estate Consultants will do.  I will give you the personalized service touch that you desire!  You are NOT a NUMBER to me!  I will be glad to show you what you can NET from the sell of your home here in The Villages Florida!  Plus I have a whole team of Service Providers that can do an Estate Sale, Move, Cleaning, Auction, Repair Services, Floor / Tile Cleaning, etc.
