my years of selling and buying real estate, I have earned
the top real estate designations there are in residential
sales. The CRS
(Council of Residential Specialists) designation is the
top one with class requirements and production requirements.
The next is the GRI
(Graduate, Realtor Institute) with class requirements.
The next designation that I hold is the CEA (Certified Exchange
Advisor). In business and investment transactions, you have
to know about tax deferred exchanges, which can save your
client a huge amount of money.
very important to you, as a buyer or seller is that I am a
full-time Real Estate Broker and sales agent, and have been
since 1988. Real estate is my only business and I believe
that if you are in the business you should also own real estate
yourself. I own my own home and a few other rentals and land
of this year, 2011, I have 31 years as an active sales agent
and I love the business of helping people make their dream
come true. Whether it is the first home that a new buyer is
purchasing and being extremely nervous about or the seasoned
buyer purchasing their 5th or 10th property.
am very active in the community - charter member of the Livonia
Kiwanis Club and Past President two times. We serve the children
of the Livonia area and one of our programs is the Toys for
Tots at Christmas time. I am active at the United Church of
Livonia being a past trustee chairman for five years. Currently
we are in our new church building at 21 Summers Street in
the Village of Livonia.
have started three Livonia Central School Scholarships in
the past and the last one was the James F. Kemp-Realtor Scholarship
Fund. One deserving graduating senior is chosen by a committee
from the school to receive the scholarship. If anyone would
like to contribute to this great program, which is tax deductible,
please call me.
grew up in the Livonia and Conesus Lake area and know the
