My father came to America in 1947, penniless and with only the belongings that he carried with him through Europe during the war. He left home when he was only 15, never again to see his mother, father, and siblings! I could not understand the agony he carried in his heart as I tried to get to know him as a young child. Fifteen years later (1962), he travelled back to Europe to meet my then 22 year old mother, and soon they married. Thereafter, she too came to America. My parents, their friends, and other family members all came to America because of its promise to allow people to take flight on extended wings and rejoice in its freedoms and opportunity. Nothing exemplified this more than their ability to make a home for themselves, whereever they aspired to live. My parents started their little nest in a rental nearby today's Metro Health General Hospital. Soon my father was following the "American" dream and built his own little home in today's "Old Brooklyn". As their "little" family grew to include 3 very bright little girls,(I am the independent, set-out-to-set-the-world-on-fire middle child), they again chose to move, to an area close to the Ukrainian American Elementary school my father helped to erect in the early 1950's. All of this was possible because they were in America. I grew up believing in America as truly a land of promise and opportunity.
I am honored to be able to work as a steward of that promise! I wish for everybody the same opportunity as my parents knew, and hope to help fulfill everyones dreams of homeownership. In addition, having worked in restaurant management for many years, I have acquired the most desirable and necessary skills to service my real estate clients. First & foremost, each client is my most important client and via my listening & communication skills I am able to develop the rapport & relationship ideal to meet your home buying & selling needs. I do not rest until you can rest with peace of mind that you have been serviced by the best in the industry, and your dreams of homeownership have been fulfilled. I hope to work with you very soon!
