I grew up in New Rochelle, New York and have lived in Hartford, Connecticut and Clearwater, Florida and spent summers in the Hamptons and Montauk.

In 1991, I met my wife, Robyn, and my step-son, Geoff, and moved to New Jersey.  In September of 1997, Robyn and I got married and in May of 1998, we moved into our home in Robbinsville.  That move was followed by the birth of our son, Josh, in September of that same year. 

Robyn and I decided that instead of moving to the Carolinas or Florida, we wanted to stay in New Jersey and what better place than LBI and the surrounding area.  So, through a family connection, I have had the privilege of joining The Van Dyk Group who, since 1946, has guided over 20,000 families, individuals and commercial businesses in fulfilling their real estate, LBI vacation and insurance needs.

When I lived in Clearwater, I purchased a condo and Robyn and I have built two homes together, our Robbinsville home as well as a home in Spring Lake.  Having sold two of those properties and with the third about to be sold, I understand both sides of the process all too well.  Working with architects, builders, contractors, and interior designers can be a challenge, but it can also be a lot of fun.  So, I decided to do this full-time and take all of my experience and what I’ve learned about residential real estate, sales, marketing and people and bring it to others.  This is not just about selling, buying and commissions.  This is about helping guide my clients through the journey, handling the emotional ups and downs, driving the negotiations and communications and navigating the finances, legalese and inspections. 

This is also about taking the time to get to know each other, listening to you and understanding your objectives and making them crystal clear, having a clear vision of the process and the journey we are about to take and working together to protect the financial security of all parties involved so that everyone is happy with the end result.  My goal is to help you live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life whether that’s finding a new home, selling your home or investing in real estate.
