Experience You Can Rely On
I have been a licensed REALTOR® for over a decade serving greater Philadelphia. Recently I joined the Compass team, a technology-driven real estate company. Compass empowers me and the Jonathan Fink Group to provide you with the best possible service for your real estate actions. Compass is way ahead of the curve in terms of technology, transactional support, and innovative marketing.
In the past I worked for Keller Williams Center City where I was a member of the Agent Leadership Council, a Gold Award Winner for five years, and a Five Star Real Estate Agent. I also earned accolades there as a top-performing estate agent in terms of both volume and units.
On behalf of my clients, over the years I have bought and sold hundreds of homes in greater Philadelphia. I am also a real estate investor; I own a family home and four investment properties across the city. I pride myself on being knowledgeable about all aspects of the local housing market, reliable, and committed to my clients’ success.
My approach to real estate emphasizes my relationships with people. When you hire me as your REALTOR®, you can count on working with me specifically. In contrast to large real estate groups, where various realtors take part in your transaction with little continuity, I will work with you directly. This means I will personally provide you with a consultation, negotiate on your behalf, and assist you through every step of the process – whether it be buying or selling. I will get to know you, and we’ll work collaboratively.
Communication is Key
I will communicate with you regularly in the manner you prefer. If you leave a voice message or send a text, I will contact you within two hours.
Bringing Value to the Table
Whether working with home buyers, home sellers, or developers, I value every relationship and provide unparalleled professional representation.
I moved to Philadelphia from Oregon in 1983 to study the cello at the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts (now University of the Arts). I earned a BA in music performance and have been an active freelance cellist in the region since 1987. For me, music and real estate are related. Decades of music practice and performance have trained me to concentrate profoundly. I apply this same laser focus and commitment to my work as a REALTOR®, which has helped me to both succeed personally and to achieve my clients’ goals.
I live in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia with my wife Marjorie and our son, Ben. Ben has Asperger’s Syndrome, and our family is involved with the local Center for Autism Research. Our daughter, Hannah, is a student at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of the Performing Arts. She is a talented dancer and singer, as well as a budding actress.
I am an Instrument Rated Private Pilot with 1,000 hours of flight time. I own a restored 1960 Beechcraft Bonanza, which is hangared at the Philadelphia Northeast Airport. I have been known to take my clients on a scenic ride around Philadelphia for a unique viewpoint of our city.
My Pledge to You
I vow to represent you to the very best of my ability. You will receive expertise, honesty, and professionalism from me at all times. I will work to make your home sale or purchase as smooth as possible by:
- communicating with you regularly and in the way you prefer
- helping you find the services you need and making sure you understand their purpose, and helping you obtain financing and working with your lender
You can also count on a friendly, relaxed, fun relationship. We may even laugh a little!
