Determined - Trustworthy - Discrete - Entrepreneurial – Experienced............As you consider one of the largest and more emotional transactions of your life, these are several of the characteristics you should be looking for in a Realtor. These traits are my guideposts as a member of Gloria Nilson & Co and as an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. I am eager to engage with you, your family, and/or your fellow investors to effect a rewarding real estate exchange. I take tremendous pride in my ability to assess market opportunities, distill and satisfy the unique needs of my clients, manage complicated transactions, negotiate effectively on my customer’s behalf, and close business efficiently. I do this with a focus on building positive relationships with sellers, buyers, attorneys, bankers, my fellow Realtors and others integral to a successful, stress-free transaction. Born and raised in Monmouth County, I have a comprehensive knowledge of its communities, its schools, its housing market, and its diverse neighborhoods. My professional and educational experiences have been focused on sales, marketing, and finance. I am committed to giving back to my community and do so actively as a member of both the Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Department and the Fair Haven First Aid Squad. My wife Genevieve and I are the proud parents of a daughter Schuyler studying at Duke University and a son Emmett at the University of Virginia. I trust my focus on service and results will lead us to a life-long real estate relationship.
