I've been living in Lakewood Ranch for just over 18 years now. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, I thought that moving to Lakewood Ranch would greatly improve the quality of life for my family and me. I never looked back. Don't get me wrong, I love New York, but I love the New York that I grew up in. Like most things in life, that New York didn't exist anymore. My background is in mortgage finance, data analysis and reporting application development. This made it an easy transition into the Real Estate market as finance is a huge part of all transactions. I enjoy helping people in general, but to be involved in such a tremendous part of a person's or family's life is incredibly rewarding.
