In my 10+ years as a real estate agent in New York City, I've helped hundreds of folks buy, sell, or lease apartments and buildings throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. As a former professional reporter, I bring a journalistic approach to real estate representation, valuing fact over flash and the gift of listening, not gab.

Born and raised in Rochester, I studied journalism at Ithaca College and then worked as a daily newspaper reporter in my home city. After covering the Olympics in Turin, Beijing and Vancouver, I moved to New York to help produce an NPR show at WNYC Public Radio.

Being from Western New York, I'd like to claim that I became a real estate agent to fill my Sunday afternoons with open houses instead of torturous football games involving the Buffalo Bills (I'm also, unfortunately, a fan of the Sabres and Mets). Truthfully, I've found over the last decade years in the real estate business that the best benefit of my job has been the opportunity to meet, help, and build relationships so many kick-ass people, including clients who eventually became my closest friends.
