Bio
I grew up in the Rochester, NY area and initially worked in the family owned Shell gas and fuel oil distributorship started by my grandfather in 1906. The business was sold in 1973 at which time I headed into the real estate business working for Malcolm Glazer, a Rochester native and now the principle owner of the Tampa Bay Buchaneers NFL football team. I put together 22 million dollars worth of income and investment property deals for Malcolm over a three year time period. I have been a licensed real estate broker in New York State since 1973 and in 1992 stopped representing sellers and listing property. Instead I became an exclusive buyer agent (EBA) representing buyers only. I also was a founding member of NAEBA, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, and held many offices with NAEBA including the national president of NAEBA in 2002-2003.

I currently continue the practice of representing home buyers only in the greater Albany, NY - Capital Region including Albany County, Renssalaer County, Schenectady County, Greene County, Saratoga County, Washington County, Otsego County as well as other areas in upstate New York north to the Adirondacks and Lake Placid.
