Excellence. Expertise. Ethics. “Your Personal Real Estate Advisor”

I am a full time real estate agent, with consistent sales in the multi-million dollar category and a recipient of the Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society Award for being amongst the top 25% of 93,000 Coldwell Banker agents worldwide. I focus on offering home sellers and homebuyers a proven excellence in client services. I hold a degree in Economics from Trinity College in Hartford, CT and bring the knowledge and know-how of being a GRI® Graduate from the REALTOR® Institute,  a RSPS® Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist and a Certified Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist.

Through my connection to the local arts community and love of the outdoors, I understand that we aren’t just selling houses - we are sharing the very unique and special Hudson Valley lifestyle. As a resident of both the Hudson Valley and Manhattan, I offer sellers a broad reaching network of potential buyers ranging from hedge fund executives to artists. My client centered, proactive approach along with my unmatched marketing team make for a winning strategy to sell your home at the best price possible. For both buyers and sellers, I provide dedication, patience, expertise, candor and humor to what can sometimes be a stressful process. Check out the long and growing list of 5 Star Reviews from happy clients! 

My wife and I first discovered the Hudson Valley in 2005 while working in the area as performing artists. We were instantly won over by the incredible beauty of the region as well as the strong arts community and of course the food & wine! We had been searching for some more elbow room and fresh air while still staying close enough to the City and our Upper West Side pad. What was intended as a second home soon became our main hub after the birth of our first daughter. We now feel so fortunate to be raising our two incredible girls in such an inspiring place, and while we’ve kept our place in the City, the Hudson Valley has become our home. 

As a family we are very active in the local arts community, performing at Equity theatres such as Ellenville’s jewel Shadowland Stages and on local film sets. I am so proud of my wife, award winning Broadway actress Denise Summerford. Denise founded Broadway Arts Collective in order to connect young Hudson Valley artists to our network of NYC professional artists. Broadway Arts Collective is honored to be the recipient of the Ulster County Executive’s Arts Award for Arts in Education.

Whether you are buying or selling, I enjoy helping clients achieve their real estate goals and I strive to be the best real estate agent you’ll ever work with as well as your personal real estate advisor! Give me a call and let’s get started!
