I started my Real Estate career in 1995 & continue to expand my knowledge & experience as a Real Estate Professional. Recently it was an honor to have been selected as "Realtor of the Year for 2010" by the Silver City Regional Board of Realtors. In addition to sales, I've work as a Property Manager & in 1998 completed the course study to become a licensed Registered Real Estate Appraiser within the State of New Mexico.
While apprenticing as a Fee Appraiser for a prominent local Appraiser, I was offered a position with the Grant County Assessors Office as a Field Appraiser & was solely responsible for appraising the Commercial & Business Personal Property within Grant County.
Prior to my Real Estate career, my true love for our community was further developed when I became the Co-Manager for the Silver City Main Street Project and worked with Downtown Business Owners to promote the Downtown Historic District.
In Boston in 1978, after spending 4 years as a Police Officer, I was trained in the field of smoking cessation & over the next 2 decades became one of the Country's most experienced & leading experts in the field of Positive Behavior Modification for Smoking Cessation. I have helped thousands & thousands of cigarette smokers in New England, California, Arizona, New Mexico & even in South Africa, break their smoking habit.
