Belonging to the Newport County Board of Realtors has added to my overall experience and knowledge. Through the Newport Board, I have become a member of the Rhode Island Government Affairs Committee and Chairman of the Newport County Government Affairs Committee. This Committee designs the platform for lobbying state senators and representatives and advocates for selected issues in Rhode Island. Attendance at the National Association of Realtors in the Spring of 2005 for their political action group has given me a wealth of experience in some of the problems with homeownership today. In 2006 both the national and state committees lobbied for real estate tax reform and for changes in the judicial interpretation of eminent domain. In 2005 and 2006 I was happy to market myself as a Certified Residential Specialist, a designation held by 4 percent of the realtors in the United States. I was fortunate to pass the Rhode Island State Broker’s Examination making me an Associate Broker in the Newport RE/MAX office. I finished my e-PRO designation with the National Association of Realtors making me an internet professional in the field. In 2007, I completed the Appraisal course work. With this experience, I bring one of my greatest assets, ACCURATE PRICING, to the table in our discussions about your home or business.

Sports continue to be a natural outlet for my boundless energy, intense concentration, and my drive for success. When there is an opportunity to compete, I continue to take advantage of this outlet. I have served on selection committees at the University of Rhode Island for sports marketing directors. Political action for a better community is a commitment. Frequently, I attend zoning board meetings, Historic District Commission meetings, and lobby for a real estate agenda on the local, state, and national levels.
