“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share
your riches but to reveal to him his own.”
(1804-1881); Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
What does it mean to reveal a person’s riches to themselves? What
is the mechanism by which you can even accomplish such a thing? And what does
it have to do with your real estate agent?
Quite a bit, I would argue. I think a real estate agent has the
power to reveal their clients’ self-possessed riches.
One, a good agent will help clients see how a home is an
investment in their future. That they are investing in themselves, and the
decision to do so is a mark of their own wisdom.
Two, a good real estate agent helps guide clients through an
emotionally fraught transaction, which often shows they have deeper reserves of
self-confidence and strength that they may have overlooked in the past.
Three, a real estate agent helps foster a sense of trust and
interdependency -- that we can, in this world, rely on others to represent our
best interests, and that we are not in a perpetual state of “king of the
mountain” and abject self-reliance. A client with a good agent has both a
friend and a professional ally.
Whether you’re buying your first house or selling your home,
there’s both a tangible, bottom-line difference when working with an agent, as
well as valuable intangible benefits. For me, it’s a great privilege to be a
professional part of that process!
I’d love the opportunity to “the greatest good” on your behalf. Now is a great time to make your

I enjoy walking the warm sandy beaches, swimming and watching the magnificent sunsets on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Thirty years ago I came from Michigan to the Sarasota area to enjoy the beaches of the Sunshine State. The “Beach Communities” Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key and Casey Key are what draw everyone to make Sarasota their home!
Sarasota the “Cultural Capital” of Florida attracts homeowners that want more than just a beach experience. Sarasota and Manatee communities with the growth of new housing maintain their elegant but laid back style. It is a great place to make it your home to be able to enjoy lush natural environment and the amenities of a modern city.
I became a home owne r in Lakewood Ranch an award winning 17,500 acre site that provides a beautiful master planned, maintained and golf community. Get the picture: blue waters, white sand, plenty of sun, blue skies, fabulous food, casual outdoor dining, amazing fishing, play golf, boat races, music and art festivals….
My focus is to best understand the goals and visions of my clients, ensuring all decisions are made with a wealth of information and the necessary tools for a successful, rewarding experience.
I have found my “Slice of Heaven” I look forward to you finding yours!
