How did you get your idea or concept for your business?
I first started out buying properties as investments. I focused on purchasing multi-units. Than I began to enjoy the process of searching for homes and analyzing the market. Shortly after, I obtained my real estate license and began working as a full-time realtor.  

What are your company's goals?
Our goal is to be trusted real estate advisors and assist anyone that desires to buy and/or sell their residential homes. For buyers, our goal is to save as much money as possible during the transaction and setting them up for future success as homeowners. For sellers, our goal is to sell their homes at the top of the market, in order for them to reap the highest return on their investment.   

What service/product do you offer?
Assist homeowner and home buyers navigate through a real estate transaction.

How does your business help your community?
By educating about the importance of homeownership and how to save as much as possible when purchasing and/or sell at the top of the market.

To what do you attribute your success? 
By treating my business like a business. It's easy to hustle and grind day in and out without stopping to first set up the foundational pieces necessary to monitor business growth.  Understanding and focusing on the right pillars of my business helps me substantially.

What one piece of advice would you give to someone just starting out?
Real Estate is a contact sport.  The more people you interact with on a daily basis is a direct correlation of how well you will do in this business. Also, what helped me is surrounding myself with people that were where I wanted to be; literally driving them nuts with questions, asking to go on appointments, simply picking their brains and learning their habits.  

What would you like potential new clients to know about your business?   
Our passion and what drives me and my team is helping individuals nagivate through one of their largest investments they may make in a lifetime. We take this responsibility seriously. We offer a streamlined approach to both buying and selling a home. We help buyers and sellers in all price points and locations in the Central PA area, with a focus on residential resale and new construction properties. Our center of attention is on educating our clients so they are able to make the best decision for themselves and/or their families. We strive to be the go to team for real estate. Aiming to be your trusted real estate adivsor.
