What's your favorite client story?
My very first client EVER is also a very good friend of mine. Two days before closing, we stopped by the property to verify all punch list items were addressed. While we were there, a torrential rainstorm passed through the area. Someone hadn't fully closed the 3rd floor Juliet balcony door.... maybe you can see where this is going. The storm blew the door open and rain began to flood the third-floor hallway. We were just beside ourselves. Sparing you the rest of the gory details, the seller - also the developer - pulled his team together to get in there the next day to do damage control. By the time we were all sitting together at the closing table, each of us had gained two new gray hairs. Now, we can look back at it and laugh. I like to think of the experience as rain on your wedding day - symbolizing good luck for both my client (their future at the property) and me (my career in real estate!).
You have a day off in Philly. What do you do?
Sleep in. Give my dog, Palmer, extra attention, hop on my bike and head toward Amrita for a hot yoga class, hop back on my bike to ride over to Philadelphia Distilling for some light bites and a Penicillin, and make my way back home to take Palmer over to the field near Berks Station to burn some energy and to say hi to his doggie friends. Jump in the car and head down to Washington Ave for a foot massage. On the way back, stop at Murph's Tavern for a big ol' plate of pasta and a glass of red wine.
What's the architectural detail your eye always gravitates towards?
I love a good staircase. It doesn't matter if it's old or new, this architectural detail can define an entire home.
Favorite community organization.
Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation because knowledge is power.
What differentiates you within real estate?
The world of real estate can be an emotional place! I see my role as doing everything in my power to help my clients cut through the noise and provide them with the smoothest experience possible, from our very first meeting all the way to the closing table. That means negotiating the best deal, referring a carefully curated group of service providers (lenders, title service providers, home inspectors, general contractors, etc.), never shying away from a difficult conversation, and getting it done.
