quick facts about us

This is not a part-time gig for us.

We are both passionate about real estate and the communities we serve. Giving back.

For those clients that we have served or are currently serving, THANK YOU for trusting us. It is truly an honor and a joy to partner with you. For those we have yet to serve, we are absolutely thrilled that you are considering us as your real estate guide.

As a real estate duo, we believe that we each bring something unique and valuable to the table...and our hundreds of five-star reviews and raving clients would agree! One of the most treasured things that we consistently hear is that our clients felt like they were treated like family.

I was blessed to be raised in western New York State with a father in the real estate business. Learning from him, my own love for real estate started while I was still in diapers. My father still owns a real estate brokerage in my hometown, and he provides frequent guidance and mentorship to us.

Featured Real Estate Keynote Speaker & Contributor

I am a Florida boy, true & true. I was raised in Plant City and graduated from Jesuit High School in Tampa where I enjoyed starting the first high school ice hockey club in the area. I was also proud to become an Eagle Scout during that time. I stayed in Florida to attend the University of Central Florida where I graduated from the College of Business...and met a smart, beautiful blonde named Tara! I enjoy everything that living in Florida offers. The amazing climate, beautiful cities and towns, friendly people and the close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world have made this an amazing place to call home.

Florida Born & Raised

Prior to real estate, my background was in the financial services industry trading mutual funds. The skills and knowledge learned during those years have translated easily into real estate for the benefit of our clients including a deep understanding of finance and accounting, the ability to solve problems quickly and great attention to detail. I am a proud analytical "numbers" guy and will gladly put those skills to work for you.

Background in Financial Services

Both Tara and I have placed great focus on continually learning and growing our knowledge so that we can be the best asset possible for our clients. Each year, I attend annual conferences, training and meetings, both local & national, where I can learn from the brightest and most respected in our industry, participate in roundtable discussions and network with other like-minded professionals. Every time we learn something new, it is an opportunity to bring that knowledge back and immediately implement it for the benefit of our clients.  

Continuing Education

So much of my last ten years have been spent updating and renovating our own family home as well as nearly ten different investment properties. To say that I am well versed in construction and renovations is an understatement. When a buyer is interested in a home that may need some love & care, I am able to advise options & approximate costs. If I had a nickel for every time Tara said, "How much do you think it will cost to...?"  My experience & knowledge in this area is particularly helpful to our clients during the inspection process. Approximating any corrections or updates that could be added to increase value is something that I really enjoy, and I am thrilled when it enables our clients to proceed in a purchase with confidence.

Brick by Brick & Board by Board

Believe me, we have seen it all. Whether personally or through the years assisting clients, I have gathered a list of reputable local contacts for every need that may arise. Need a roof repair estimate? We've got it. Need a plumber? We've got that, too. Tree removal, check. Pest control, done. Pool resurfacing, here are three contacts for quotes. I likely have a trusted contact for just about anything...and if I don't, I will find you one.
