I grew up in the Capital Region and have resided in many of the surrounding communities. I attended SCC and studied hotel management. I then started a career in automobile sales and ran two car lots wholesaling as well as retailing. I did quite well in that endeavor and invested in some real estate and realized I had found my calling.
In the early nineties, I started my career in real estate with Prudential Manor Homes, Realtors® in Delmar. The average sales price in Delmar was eighty thousand dollars. We were just beginning a major correction when I started. That lasted for several years. I worked extremely hard at my new career and rose to become the number one agent in Delmar.
Soon after that I became the manager of the office and found my new calling. I absolutely love my job and look forward to coming to work everyday. I love helping people change their lives by becoming financially successful and free of debt. This is the one of few professions that compensates you for the amount of effort you give it, which is what makes my job so great. I have seen hard working people achieve incredible success by doing what I taught them and applying immense effort. There is nothing more rewarding than to have someone attribute their success to my effort.
A couple of years ago Warren Buffett decided to invest in the real estate industry. So.... out of all the real estate companies Warren Buffett could have purchased he chose Prudential because he felt that our mission statement and our core values were perfectly aligned. On February 17th we officially became Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Blake, Realtors®. I couldn't be happier or more proud. Who wouldn't want Warren Buffett the helm?
I would like to share with you a couple of fun facts...
Berkshire Hathaway was ranked the #1 in Barron's rankings of the worlds most respected companies. (Disney was # 2 and Apple was # 3). In 2014 Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was named " Real Estate Brand of the Year ".

I now reside on Nassau Lake and wake up every morning to a beautiful sunrise. To begin my day I play racquetball three sometimes four mornings a week at Siena College. I have two beautiful young adults Scott & Nicole and my beautiful wife Laurie.
