What do you love most about living in Indiana?
The wonderful quality of life enriched by great friends and friendly people.
How does Encore Sotheby’s International Realty provide value to your clients?
Whether buying or selling, Encore Sotheby’s International Realty enables us to treat our clients like million dollar buyers or sellers no matter the price points of the homes being sought or sold.
What is the most fulfilling part about being a real estate agent?
Finding the perfect home for my buyers and getting the best sales price for my sellers.
Have you had any crazy experiences while in the field?
There isn’t enough space here to detail some of the crazy experiences, but the one that sticks in my mind is having an experience in a bonafide haunted house. Very scary!
What motivates you?
Helping people achieve their real estate goals and dreams.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’ve always wanted to go to Japan as the culture and technology they continually advance has always fascinated me.
What’s your top piece of advice for clients who are selling a home? What about buying a home?
In terms of selling, you don’t need to spend a fortune to get your home on the market. You must do certain things to neutralize or repair if things detract from the look of the home, and staging is recommended and is not always expensive. As for buyers, I always tell them not to force a home to fit their needs, it has to happen naturally. For twenty years I have watched buyers as they walk into a home and just know it’s the one.
What do you do from a philanthropic standpoint?
Having lost my wife to cancer, and as a cancer survivor myself, I am getting more involved in Cancer Society activities and fundraising. Additionally, I oversee the endowment of the Amy Kline Memorial Scholarship which works through the Carmel Education Foundation and awards scholarships to college bound freshmen.
What are your most enjoyable hobbies?
I enjoy art and theater and can be found at many of Indy’s fine museums. I also like spending time cooking and enjoying meals with close friends – it’s always a special time for me.
What are your best recommendations of things to do and see for people moving to Indiana from out-of-state?
Naturally, I recommend the downtown museums, zoo, the Cultural Trail and Mass Ave. But I also enjoy showing them the cool areas around town such as Irvington and the explosive growth in Hamilton County such as in Carmel, Fishers and Westfield. I explain that these areas are practically unrecognizable from only a few years ago!
What’s your favorite design trend and what’s got to go?
Eclectic design is always in for me. Stained woodwork is out and always dates a home.
