I have resided in South Florida, Boca Raton and Ft.Lauderdale) for the past 44 years, so I have a vast knowledge of the surrounding areas and the history and growth of South Florida. I have 27 years of experience selling Real Estate full time and I am a multi-million dollar producer year after year. I have worked at Balistreri Realty for the past 17 years. The owners have the hands on approach of caring about each client that does business with us. This is the high standard that I set for myself, and together, we strive for the best service that can be given. I do not limit my selling knowledge to the immediate area. I am very comfortable going as far north as Jupiter and south to Hollywood. I will also go west until the Everglades stop me!
My career has given me many opportunities and the expertise of the many lifestyles here in south Florida. I worked for Coldwell Banker, on-sight at the Polo Club for 3 years, of which I specialized in Country Club and Waterfront communities. I can easily transition myself to the many needs and lifestyles of clients moving to south Florida. One does not just purchase or sell a home here, they buy or sell a lifestyle of the home, community and area. I have a well-rounded knowledge of both, public and private schools, and also the college life that is offered here in Palm Beach or Broward county.
I reside behind the campus of Lynn University and FAU. I designed and built my own custom home, which affords me the knowledge to help a client with new construction, or remodeling an older home on the perfect lot or in a perfect community. It is very helpful in easing the doubts of doing a face-lift to create a home of a clients dreams. My hands-on experience also helps clients when deciding on site selection, upgrades, pools, architectural changes and much more. I have a vast knowledge of any type of housing and am very comfortable finding a client a $100,000 condo or a 30 million dollar estate. I can easily discuss the value of the land that a home is situated on and educate my client about the value of a lot and the location of communities in south Florida. LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! This knowledge helps the client realize the different values of homes in different locations and the escalation of its value and ease of resale in the future. Whether it be ocean front, deep-water on the Intracoastal, the love of golf or tennis, the excitement of city life, or the perfect school for your child, I have the knowledge to help you find that perfect home. I also enjoy helping clients find that second home for the winter months or their future retirement. South Florida offers a variety of 55+ communities, many offering that country club lifestyle without the memberships attached. My goal with every client is to make them happy to be coming home!
I love working with people and helping them find the perfect lifestyle here in our wonderful Paradise. I actively play golf and often enjoy a round of golf with my clients. I can be seen swinging my clubs at many Charity events in which I support the cause. Many of my clients become good friends and I often share a dinner with them and sell them several homes over their lifetime here. I also enjoy skiing and deep sea fishing. I love yoga and actively participate with a group for the Veterans of our country. We started the first yoga class for these men and women and have found it very successful with helping them deal with PTSD. Our group has expanded over the U.S. and all branches of the service.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in Bachelor of Arts.
Real Estate is a passion of mine. I continually attend classes and schooling to keep me informed of all the latest laws, rules and regulations, changes in insurance and the vast expansion and building in all our cities. Boca Raton is enjoying a total face lift at this time and it is beautiful and exciting! Come and see and feel the excitement. You too can enjoy the wonderful life that south Florida offers to everyone!
