"At Illuminate, we aim to make your home buying and selling experience personal. We embrace all clients as part of our family."

With over 20 years in customer service the one skill I find most useful to this business is the ability to listen. I work with you to really hear what you are asking for and what you are saying you need. The selling and buying of homes is an emotional rollercoaster and I strive to make it as even keel as possible. I have a network of colleagues that I have established an efficient and effective work relationship with over my 7 years in real estate; consisting of loan officers, attorneys, inspectors, and appraisers. Working with me means you are guaranteed integrity, confidentiality, high level of skills, and most of all a friend. It is always nice to have a friend in your corner! I have lived in the Syracuse area for 31 years, growing up and schooling in Marcellus and planting roots and raising my family in Liverpool. I have a vast knowledge of the local areas. I have two little girls, the ages of 9 and 7 and have been married for 13 years. We are patrons of Immanuel Lutheran Church and are active within. I would be very happy to list your property or to assist you in finding the right property for you to purchase. Please call or email me with all of your real estate needs.
