I love not only the work that I do, but the team that I work with. Together we are an innovative, tech savy and highly knowledgeable group of Realtors.

Every neighborhood in the 716 area is truly unique. I personally grew up in Hamburg, NY so I know the Real Estate Markets in the Southtowns...Graduated from the University at Buffalo with a B.A. in Psychology...and settled down in the Northtowns. So no matter where you are looking to Buy or Sell I can help you reach your goal.
