Areas of Expertise
I particularly enjoy working with first time buyers, and helping them to achieve the American dream of home ownership. I am the former president of Shelter Construction Co., Inc. which, in addition to other projects, built highly energy efficient solar heated home developments. The experience and information gained in that capacity is very helpful to my new home buyer clients as well as new home developers. I also have considerable restoration experience as the former president of New England Restorations Co. This is very helpful for clients interested in antique homes, and I enjoy being involved in the sale of antiquarian homes that have been restored rather than remodeled. As the owner of rental properties, I have an excellent understanding of the special needs of investment buyers and sellers. Finally, as the owner of waterfront property I am familiar with the intricacies of dealing with the littoral rights of oceanfront property owners.

Community Involvement
My community service includes Coldwell Banker Cares, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk, and The Ocean Conservancy. I am also a Team Captain of the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, and a former scout leader, V.P. of Big Brothers & Big Sisters, and Director of the Waterford Historical Society.

Personal Background
My family has been in the New London area for five generations, so I have a reasonably good handle on what is going on in the areas I serve. I attended local public schools and my children attended local private schools, this gives me a great overview of all the educational opportunities in the area as well. I own waterfront property in New London, condo rental units in Waterford, and multifamily rental units in New London, all giving me insight into the joys, trials, and tribulations of various types of property ownership, all valuable tools to assist my clients.

Testimonials
Thank you for all your help with my home purchase. You gave me multimillion dollar service even though I didn't have millions to spend. Laura, relocation client from Michigan.

Thank you so much for the tour this morning, the visual overview of all the towns was very helpful as were your insights as a native New Londoner. We enjoyed the tour very much. Emily, New York

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your help and expertise with the sale of our home. I'm glad that all went as smoothly as it did, and again, thank you Paul. Barbara, Springfield

We really appreciate your help, some support and guidance go a long way! Jean, Colchester
