My years in the automoblie retail business taught me that the most important thing is to be a good listener, and to focus on what the customer believes is most important. I see myself as a guide, someone who is there to provide information and respectful input so that my customers, in the end, will confident and happy about the choice they have made. For me, this has always been the most rewarding part of being a sales representative. In the field of real estate, I will continue to endeavor to help customers find the residential or commercial property that best suits their needs.
I come from an automotive background and for over thirty years, I ran my family's dealership in West Caldwell, New Jersey. I graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in political science and public administrtion, and studied automotive management for and additional year at the National Auto Dealer's Academy. My real estate experience includes managing several family-owned commercial properties.
National Automobile Dealer Candidate Academy 1985-1986
Montclair State University 1978-1983
Oratory Prep School, Summit, New Jersey 1974-1978
I reside in North Caldwell, New Jersey with my wife, Karen and my two sons, Michael and Alex. I grew up in West Caldwell and attended local schools.
During my time in the automobile business, I enjoyed sponsoring and participating in local civic events, like the Caldwell Street Fair, and other venues that gave me the opportunity to meet people in my community and provide them with helpful information about the products and services I represented. I was also priviledged to serve for a period of one year on the North Caldwell Borough Planning Board.
Music, art and history are a special part of my life. I studied piano for many years. Cooking is a favorite passtime and I love trying different kinds of cuisine. Both of my sons are life-long hockey players and so I am a hockey fan and a veteran "hockey dad". I also love to play golf. I have family in Europe and have enjoyed my travels there as well as all over the United States.
