I am a long time Gaylord Michigan resident, having moved up with my family from down state where  we lived in Milford and Waterford.  My wife Annette and I have 4 children, all still at home.

I worked at General Dynamics in Warren, Ford in Dearborn, and IBM in Southfield. I have held various positions including Engineering (I hold a BSME and MSECCS degree), Purchasing, Computer Administrator, IT Architect, IT Consultant, Manager, and Executive.

While working at Ford for over 8 years, I performed duties as a paralegal, analyzing contracts and working closely with lawyers. This experience is critical as the real estate sale process is very complex legally.
I opened a Tim Hortons in Gaylord which is fully operational today.
Should you choose me as your Agent, I will serve you as I would myself in any transaction and will look after your interests.  Many years of Real Estate experience from the buying and renting perspectives has prepared me to be your advocate.  Please feel free to call me or email me to discuss your situation and what I can do for you.
