Personal Background

A resident of Lakes of The Four Seasons our family moved to Northwest Indiana over ten years ago for the same reasons many of my clients move here.

Vacation style living year-round

Great Schools

Close to the great city of Chicago 

We think we have the best of both worlds. Just a few miles from the loop and an old-fashioned small town feel.

I still play with cars

I am an avid NASCAR fan and one of the original members of the NASCAR fan counsel.  We hold seasons tickets to Chicagoland Speedway.  

Here is a picture of my antique truck.  If you see me tooling around, flag me over and we can talk; racing, cars, motorbikes or real estate.

Technology is a big piece of the puzzle, and CENTURY 21 Affiliated has always believed in harnessing the power of new programs, systems and products in order to provide the best service to our customers.

To find that home, you need to work with the best company and the best REALTOR. You want an agent that is well-trained and accessible and one who know how to navigate any kind of market to get you to the home where you belong
