Back in early 2000, when someone asked me what I’d like to do upon retirement from my teaching career, I doubt that being a real estate salesperson would have been part of the conversation. Well, here I am, retired from teaching with close to 20 years of real estate experience under my belt. I began my real estate career with Illustrated Properties/GMAC Real Estate in Mayfield, NY and transitioned to Coldwell Banker Arlene M. Sitterly, Inc. a short time later.
My teaching career at the Mayfield Central School District in Mayfield, NY spanned 31 years and I enjoyed every minute of it. I taught 7th and 9th Grade English. The kids were great, I worked with some excellent teachers and administrators, and the Mayfield community was always very supportive. I also coached soccer at various levels for over 20 years.
Real estate is a rewarding and challenging profession. I’ve had the pleasure of working with many different buyers and sellers and helping them attain their real estate goals. Although I’ve gained a wealth of experience over the years, I’m always striving to learn more about the field of real estate so I can provide my clients with the most professional buying or selling experience possible. My clients describe me as hard working, honest, responsible, and a good communicator. I like to go above and beyond for my clients.
I’ve been married to my wife Karen for 33 years and we have a family of teachers. Karen is a Special Education in the Greater Johnstown School District. Kirsten, my daughter, is an English teacher at Wayne Central School in the Rochester area. Both of my sons are also involved in the field of Education. Kristopher is a Social Studies teacher at Galway Central School and Dylan has been substitute teaching at Mayfield Central. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, working out at the gym, coaching soccer, and maintaining friendships with some close friends from high school days.
