Your East Fort Lauderdale home has served you well,
but now it's time to start your next chapter!
You're ready to sell, free up time, and take advantage of the equity you've built over the years. Congratulations! It's a big decision, but one that most homeowners, at some point, have to face. This may be one of the larger transactions you’ve been involved in lately, perhaps the largest, so it’s not just any deal. You recognize there are tons of moving parts that need to be kept together to avoid those potential hiccups that pop up in nearly every real estate transaction.
Without guidance from someone experienced in your local market, and who's proactive enough to forecast potential roadblocks that may appear, you can easily find yourself frustrated—walking away with less than you deserve.
We can help!
While others you could work with will do the bare minimum to stay in contact with you and get you just any measly result, we focus on getting you the maximum result...while making the process fun. Each and every showing is treated like a stage performance, connecting and adapting to potential buyers as we make certain all the fine points of your home and the area are pointed out. No Lock Box with us!!
As the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words." We’ll deploy our vast network of vendors and contractors to get your home looking its best and produce high-end photos and videos.
We’ll do all the heavy-lifting, including coordinating between multiple parties, keeping track of critical dates, and ensuring you are crystal clear through each step of the process, that way, you can simply focus on your move.

He quickly brokered several luxury waterfront deals and again was involved in the acquisition, design/development, and sale of several “spec” homes in the Las Olas area.
