I have been active in real estate since 1964 except for 5 years with the U.S. Air Force in the late 1960's and hold the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. I am active in the community because I believe firmly in giving something back. My philosophy is simple "always do your best, and then some".

If you are looking for help buying or selling Real Estate in or around Marquette, I’m here to help you. Marquette is my home and where I choose to raise my family. I know the area well, and have lived here long enough to consider myself a local. I work in Real Estate as a second career because I enjoy the versatility of it. I enjoy meeting and helping families like mine to find a house that they can make their home. I also enjoy helping families who have out-grown their home to find something more suitable for their current situation. I’d be happy to help you with any of your real estate needs.
