I have been very fortunate to have met many wonderful families over the last 14 years in the real estate business. It is exciting to assist them to move to a new and exciting place and phase of their lives. For me,  it has always been about educating  people about the area and the market and helping them to make informed decisions. You want to have an advocate and facilitator  throughout the process of buying and selling a home in this community. Please let me know if I can answer any questions you may have about the area, a particular property, or the market in general.

Thank you

We moved to Vermont in 2000 to the Champlain Islands from Isle of Palms, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston where my wife Anne and I owned and operated a Restaurant and Outfitting Business. We wanted to raise our young family in an authentic New England community and share with them the experience of what it means to live on the water and enjoy all that the four seasons offer in Vermont.  In 2001, we bought a c. 1860 farmhouse on the lake in Grand Isle , closer to our families in Upstate New York and Massachusetts. We live there year round and have a 19 year-old daughter Alex, who attends the University of Vermont, and 12 year old son Will. We love outdoor sports including Windsurfing, Stand Up Paddleboarding, and Skiing. I also coach Basketball at Grand Isle School and Lacrosse in South Burlington. I would be happy to answer questions about the area and specific properties. Buying and selling waterfront, Island, and country properties is different from most residential real estate transactions. Be sure to partner yourself  with an experience and knowledgeable agent. Thanks for learning a bit about me!
