Hi, thanks for stopping by.
Below you will find a bit more information on who I am, my specialties, and the values I believe in. Although I would love to work with every person I meet, I find the most rewarding and successful relationships take place when there is a match in core values. If it looks like we might be a match, or you want to learn more, let's grab coffee or tea and see where the conversation takes us!
Thanks very much and have a terrific rest of the day,
My Personal Mission
To enjoy life and help others do the same.
My Approach to Offering Howard Hanna Services

If you decide you like me in an initial meeting, we then do a deep dive into fleshing out your goals and how we are going to achieve them. With the support of Howard Hanna and its amazing infrastructure, we will kick things into gear and I won't stop until you are happy with the outcome.
The People I Serve
From first-time buyers, to investors, to emptynesters, I love working with all sorts of people.
The Neighborhoods I Know
I've lived in Cleveland for 28 years and understand the pros and cons of Aurora, Hunting Valley, Chagrin Falls, Gates Mills, Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, Downtown, Midtown, Tremont, and Ohio City.
A Snapshot Of My Background
Originally from Cleveland, OH, I had the fortunate opportunity to grow up in Hunting Valley with my mother (Leigh), father (Jim), sister (Kate) and brother (Graham). Despite my parents thinking they would never send their kids to single-sex schools, I was a "lifer" (K-12) at University School. Following high school I traveled south for college and went to Elon University, in North Carolina, where I majored in Business Marketing and had the time of my life.
In 2008 I graduated from Elon as an honor student and came back home to Cleveland and discovered a city I didn’t know existed. Much to my surprise, I found a city with an incredible quality of life, a low cost of living, terrific people, and endless entertainment. Over the last 10 years I have carved out an entrepreneurial career, one which included working with a healthcare startup, co-founding a successful nonprofit organizations, co-founding an internet business, and providing marketing, strategy and product innovation consulting on the side.
Always one to explore new horizons, must be the "youngest child syndrome in me", I made the leap to become a real estate agent, a profession I always wanted to be in and am now making a reality.
