I was born in Philadelphia and attended Miami Dade Junior College in Miami where I was a member of the 1969 national Junior College gymnastic team. Following that, I earned a BS degree from Southern Connecticut University in New Haven, where I was a member of the 1972 national gymnastic team. After moving back to Philadelphia, I studied real estate investment and appraisal at Temple University Real Estate Institute. My fascination with all things real estate, especially renovation and historic preservation, led me out of a budding career as a high school teacher in 1975. I went on to become a partner in Landmark Investment Group. After a successful career in restoring and investing in old buildings and selling the finished product, my wife Marilyn (who had achieved her own success in the banking world) decided to trade our big city existence for the lifestyle we had long dreamed of. In 1997 we packed up the moving truck and, accompanied by our golden retriever Rudy, headed west. Our love of skiing, golf, and wide open spaces led us to Park City - some research skill was involved and much luck. We immediately launched our Park City real estate careers - me in sales and Marilyn in office management.
My interest in golf/ski communities grew until it has become my main focus. I have built and sold many homes in those communities and I particularly enjoy working with builders and marketing high end single family homes. I am fortunate to share my passion for our outstanding golf/ski communities with my partner Darrick Olsen and to have my wife Marilyn in charge of our support team. My favorite office location, depending on the season, is either the first tee or first tracks. I enjoy sharing our unique marketing program with new friends.
