About Me

I was raised in Orchard Park, New York, home of the Buffalo Bills! I graduated from Colgate University and embarked on a career in the computer software and services industry focusing on financial services. I retired as a senior executive at Policy Management Systems, a $250 million public company serving the insurance industry. From 2001 to 2012, I was one of 20 Founders of The Golf Club at Briar's Creek on Johns Island, SC and served as its CEO from 2003-2012. My wife, Donna ,and I lived at our primary residence on Kiawah Island, SC for many years before purchasing a second home in The Cliffs at Walnut Cove in 2005 and then decided to relocate permanently in 2012. I joined Walnut Cove Realty in 2012 and have enjoyed every minute as the company has grown into a market leader in luxury real estate in Western North Carolina.

With more than a decade of experience serving luxury real estate clients in Western North Carolina, I draw on my background in technology and business to assess and analyze every possible option to ensure the best outcome for my clients. As a resident in The Cliffs at Walnut Cove, I have valuable first-hand knowledge of the community, its history, residents, and the unique lifestyle of this sought-after gated golf community. Prior to our affiliation with Beverly Hanks, I held the position of Broker-in-Charge at Walnut Cove Realty, and I currently help manage the business affairs of WCR, including our powerful CRM system that tracks business leads and listings to ensure our clients are always first to know when properties become available that meet their criteria.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
