My Client-First Philosophy


There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.


That said, in my experience as a VALPARAISO real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.


This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.


So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the VALPARAISO,CHESTERTON,PORTER,PORTAGE,KOUTS,HEBRON,LAPORTE areas, please contact me.


 


Personal


I am a Hoosier by birth, born in Indianapolis and raised in the midwest. Growing up, I was always involved with extra-curricular activities through school and church. I graduated from Elgin High School while living in Bartlett, Illinois and later graduated from Valparaiso University with a degree in Marketing. Valparaiso has been my home since 1981. I utilized my Marketing Degree to open and run a successful local business from 1985 until 1996. I've enjoyed being a Real Estate Broker since 1993. My wife and I enjoy raising our two children here with all of the amenities Valparaiso has to offer. Porter County is our home for many reasons. Not the least of which is being just minutes from the southern shores of Lake Michigan. We also enjoy the close proximity to Chicago and reasonable distance to Indianapolis.
