1. What do you think makes you one of the Best Real Estate Agents in America?
Keeping things simple, maintaining consistency and resolve and making decisions with the “big picture” in mind.
2. What made you get started in real estate?
Happenstance. A friend and I got our license for something to do. We thought it would be debonair and cool to tell people that we “dabbled” in real estate. Three years later I was out of a job and decided to put my license to use.
3. What is your business philosophy?
A quote that I once read from General George S. Patton. “A good plan executed today is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”
4. What is your favorite thing about working for William Raveis?
Memories from when I first began and worked together closely with Bill. In retrospect the journey almost always seems more rewarding and impactful than the destination.
5. If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
To make everyone healthy, wealthy and wise…and to love one another.
