My Business Philosophy
I personally live by the platinum rule; treat people like they want to be treated. When I assist people with their real estate needs, I make the extra effort to know exactly what they require and desire by asking important questions and more importantly, listening carefully to the answers. This assures time isn't wasted and we get to the fun part of finding the perfect home at an ideal price. People I work with will attest that communication is of utmost importance, and that I am easy to contact. Even if I can't answer in real time, I will return calls and messages very promptly. I work to make people happy and their real estate dreams come true, and the side effect of good work is new friends and a rewarding paycheck.
Who doesn't really want a great Florida lifestyle? My wife Kami and I met in college in Pennsylvania, and we both dreamed of raising a family in a family friendly, beach and boating area. I knew the perfect place because I had lived there as a child, and as soon as we could after our wedding, me moved to Bradenton. Now we have two girls and we all enjoy the fun of our area; beach, boating, fishing, golfing, kayaking, Disney, Busch Gardens, Sea World and trips to the keys, great restaurants and shopping, and the year round warmth.
It's not just the weather or the fact that we have some of the worlds best beaches, but there are so many great neighborhoods located where people can enjoy the lifestyle that they desire as well. Beach homes, boaters homes, city condos, historic homes, and country homes available for just about everyone's wants and needs. There are so many to choose from, that it can be difficult in narrowing your search. Kami and I did our research to find the area that was close to boating water, easy to get to the beach and centrally located so our commutes to work were easy. We found our area and ideal neighborhood, and then started to look for the perfect house there that fit our criteria. Almost 20 years later, we still love our home and thoroughly enjoy our neighborhood.
My wife Kami works as a social worker for the Manatee Co. School Board and she was well aware that Manatee Co. has school choice. Knowing that, we have been able to choice our girls to what we felt were the best schools in the area giving them a great schooling experience. I know parents are always concerned with their child's education and making sure they attend the best schools is important. I have been lucky that my wife, sister and brother in law all work in the public school system which has given us inside information as to which schools have the best teachers, best management and best parental support systems. Everyone deserves to send their children to the best schools.
