Having lived in Boston for most of my life, I chose to move to Cleveland's suburban east side because of the quality of life made possible by:

  •  Affordable real estate in exceptional neighborhoods
  •  Top quality schools
  • Outstanding museums and cultural attractions nearby

Having been through the relocation process myself I have acute knowledge of:

  •  The transition of going from one part of the country to another
  • Investing in the right home and the need to have a trusted advisor .

 Living in an older home for a number of years, I also know the importance of quality craftsmanship and the possibilities of modern updates.

 I am committed to highest levels of service, integrity, and responsiveness to your individual needs.

1.                 First impressions are lasting.  The front door greets the prospect.  Make sure it is fresh and clean.  Keep the lawn trimmed and edged, and the yard free of refuse.  In winter, be sure snow and ice are removed from walkways and steps.

2.                Decorate for a quick sale.  Faded walls and worn woodwork reduce appeal.  Why try to tell a prospect how your home COULD look, when you can show by redecorating?  Neutral colors fit with any buy’s color scheme, and a new touch of paint will often result in a quick, profitable sale.

3.                Let the daylight shine in!  Open draperies and curtains and let the prospect see how cheerful your home can be (dark rooms do not appeal).

4.                Fix that faucet!  Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests faulty plumbing.

5.                Repairs can make a big difference.  Loose knobs, sticking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers and other minor flaws detract from home value.  Have them fixed.  (When prospects see things that need attention, they begin to worry about things they can’t see.)

6.                From top to bottom.  Display the full value of your attic, basement and other utility space by removing all unnecessary articles.

7.                Safety first.  Keep stairways clear.  Avoid a cluttered appearance and possible injuries.


8.                Make closets look bigger.  Neat, well-ordered closets show that the space is ample.

9.                Bathrooms help sell homes.  Check and repair caulking in bathtubs and showers.  Make this room sparkle.

10.              Arrange bedrooms neatly.  Remove excess furniture.  Use attractive bedspreads and freshly laundered curtains.

11.               Can you see the light?  Illumination is like a welcome sign.  The potential buyer will feel a flowing warmth when you turn on lights for an evening presentation.

12.              Clean, Fresh Coverings.  It isn’t uncommon to either clean or replace all carpeting and other floor covering to maximize interior appeal.
