I believe strongly in Ben Franklin's quote "an investment in knowledge always pays the best dividends" and as such have invested heaviliy in real estate courses over my 25 year career. I've attained the designations of Certified Buyers Representative (CBR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate of the Real Estate Institue (GRI), Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CBR); received on October 16, 2008 the highly coveted Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). This education coupled with my 23 years of experience provides my sellers/buyers/landlords/tenants the confidence they need to have in their Realtor during each and every transaction. More Less
