A Helping Hand

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

Our years of professional experience in purchasing, operating, and selling businesses has taught us skills in mediation and negotiation through communication. Communication is the key to any transaction and we are committed to keeping all lines of communication open for our client's needs. Our experiences have taught us how important a trained and caring helping hand can be. Through honesty, mediation, negotiation and communication we are happy to provide that help.

I am State College native and a proud Penn State alum with a wonderful wife, Dana, two great kids, Nina and Alec and two dogs, Ace and Birdie.  As both the TMART Race Director and Head Coach,  and parent to two ski racers, we are a family that lives for the Winter! In the summer months, I enjoy golfing, cycling and being outside.  My love of wine has never dissipated despite leaving the restaurant world.  I always love to share my wine knowledge with friends and clients.
