In 2005 I experience by first probate sale on the selling side in 2006and it was not until 2012 that I realized it was my calling.

My Dad used to call me the "Philadelphia lawyer" because I love to debate the issues with him a New York Book Dealer by trade. Now I find that going to the court house and working with grieving families who have lost loved ones understand the system is how I was intended to serve all along.

I became Probate Certified this year (2012) and now with many sold homes under my belt I am making it a focal point of my business.

Please call me today so that I can help you, your friends or your loved ones through this difficult process and allow my expertise to make it successful and easy for you today.

Call me Now and ask about the special low commission rate I offer sellers!
