Software development consultant
Mostly Long Island, N.Y.
As a child: A cartoonist, inspired by Charles M. Schultz. In college: Consumer product marketing executive. Now: Realtor extraordinaire.
I love playing tennis and attending live music events.
Abraham Lincoln because I would love to ask for his advice on how to deal with the divisive culture in the U.S. today.
The cost of living is very low compared to other cities given what it has to offer.
Helping people become proud homeowners.
I am very tech savvy due to my background as a software development consultant, and now I also have a greater knowledge of the financing side of things because I have become a licensed mortgage loan originator as well as an agent.
Competing with Wall Street companies that are squandering investor money by making investments that simply don’t make business sense, losing billions and telling investors that they will one day be profitable, which does not seem true.
Try things that don’t require a long-term commitment or contract so you can stop them if they don’t work. Also, do not neglect your existing database as a great source of repeat and referral business.
I read mostly nonfiction informational things and prefer to watch fictional stories vs. reading them. I still listen mostly to 80’s and 90’s classic and alternative rock music (Rush, Genesis, Pearl Jam, etc.). I have never gotten into the hip hop that seems to dominate today’s music scene. Perhaps I’m just too old to appreciate it; but I miss the days when music was about musicianship: skill level at writing, playing instruments and vocals. Some of my favorite TV shows have been Breaking Bad, Dexter and a few others.
I don’t go to fancy restaurants frequently and prefer casual dining. I always enjoy Taqueria Tsunami.
The Fox Theater, of course.
Walking in on a squatter in a vacant home while showing homes to a buyer.
I like to sing karaoke.
I enjoy a nice beach. Grand Cayman is probably one of the nicest I have been to.
Don’t expect it to be easy.
I actually like Realtors Property Resource. It gives me additional info and a quick automated comparative market analysis on the fly while showing homes.
I tend to follow people who will make me laugh. Sebastian Maniscalco is very funny, and I enjoy seeing the video clips he posts.
