A Helping Hand

Whether a first time buyer/seller or looking to expand your portfolio with an investment property, my goal is to make your real estate experiences as enjoyable and as smooth as possible. As a native to State College and a PSU graduate I have an extensive knowledge of the community and overall market dynamics. 

My 14 years of professional experience in purchasing, operating, and selling businesses has taught me skills in mediation and negotiation through communication. Communication is the key to any transaction and I am committed to keeping all lines of communication open for my clients needs. My experiences have taught me how important a trained and caring helping hand can be. Through honesty, mediation, negotiation and communication I'm happy to provide that help. 

I would be pleased to meet with you anytime and build a  strong business relationship.
