Personal, Professional Development

I was born and raised in Webster and started my full-time career in real estate in 1984 after serving four years as a machinist in the United State Navy. I have enjoyed over 30 years in this business serving clients, which for me is always a very rewarding experience.

In 2012 I decided it was time to open my own firm, Empire Realty Group. With my wife Cheryl to manage the operation of the office and my son Mike to assist me with the sales, I knew it would be a new adventure in our real estate journey. The one thing I didn’t realize when I opened Empire Realty Group was how many other agents would want to join our firm. We are now 100+ agents strong with four locations! In addition to selling, I am also training newly licensed associates, preparing them for their real estate careers.

I am proud of my career in real estate, helping families realize their home ownership dreams. In my role as Broker/Owner, I guess you could say I’m “all in” with real estate in Rochester, NY! I have enjoyed the relationships I have build over the years with colleagues in the business including lenders, attorneys, and inspectors.

The future looks bright for real estate in Rochester and I look forward to serving you!
