My Philosophy. You First. A native of Hilton Head Island since 1982, I love sharing this amazing area with people from all over the world. In order for my clients to make the best decisions possible, I provide top notch information and market insight throughout every step of the process. I’m known for outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, high tech marketing and closing techniques, and a sincere personal touch. My client’s best interest is always at heart. Whether buying or selling, I understand the process can often be challenging and complicated without the right guidance and knowledge. Ultimately, my main goal is to “Put you in a perfect place,” and I utilize every resource available to make that happen for you. My focus is to take the pressure off you by listening to you, anticipating your needs and following through. I am extremely knowledgeable about the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton communities, amenities and lifestyles, along with the inventory of real estate available. On a personal note, I’m originally from Old Saybrook, Connecticut. I am passionate about dog safety and rescue, actively assisting various organizations in the area. In my spare time I love exploring the South, camping, biking, boating and playing tennis. I attended Hilton Head Prep (Class of 1992) and Yale University, and have a background in real estate operations, marketing and information technology.
