Thank you for taking the time visit my website. I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you in finding your dream home or selling your current property.

I am a lifetime resident of Western Pennsylvania growing up in 
Latrobe ,PA  and  a resident of the South Hills since 1964. 
My wife (Carol) and I currently own our home in Bethel Park. Prior to my real 
estate career, I was employed by CONSOL ENERGY for 33 1/2 years in various 
accounting positions advancing to the Eastern Region Controller.  We are the 
parents of three grown children and the proud grandparents of 6, three girls and 
three boys. I am an avid sports fan, active church member and a member of the 
Rotary Club of Bethel St Clair. In order to  serve the Bethel Park and Upper St 
Clair communities I deliver Meals on Wheels. 
In anticipation of my retirement, I explored a number of opportunities. I 
was introdced to real estate by several friends who have been successful in 
the business for a number of years. Although I had additional opportunities in the 
accounting world, I was looking for a career change and thought that selling real 
estate would be a challenge I would like to try.  I met with the Manager of the 
Bethel Park Office and discussed the many opportunities available in Real Estate. 
Before leaving the office I was offered a position upon my retirement. In August 
of 1998 I began my real estate career with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 
The Preferred Realty. In these past 19 years many changes have taken place in 
the industry. The biggest change, to me has been the computerization and social 
media.. The main lesson I have learned is that buyers, sellers, and agents need 
to be treated  the way you want to be treated. In order to be successful you must 
be dedicated and willing to work hard. 
When buying or selling a home patience is required and I frequently remind my 
clients "there is a house for every buyer and a buyer for every house". I am very 
detailed oriented which helps me service my clients. I look forward to the 
opportunity to work with you. Thanks again for your time.
