Broker, General Certified Appraiser

I am a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of West Virginia as well as a General Certified Real Estate Appraiser. I am also an experienced Buyer-Broker who has successfully handled commercial and investment properties throughout West Virginia.

Clients benefit from my experience in purchase negotiation by obtaining the best possible purchase or sale price on a property. They also have extra assurance knowing that I am recognized as a commercial appraiser in obtaining mortgage financing.

I have over 30 years' experience in the real estate business with an extensive background in real estate finance, site selection for commercial properties, sales, appraisal and consultation. I have been recognized for this experience and education by earning both the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) by the National Association of Realtors and the Senior Real Property Appraiser (SRPA) by the Appraisal Institute. My experience has qualified me as an expert witness in West Virginia in connection with real estate values.
