I am a lifelong resident of the South Bend area. I had the privilege of growing up just a couple blocks from Notre Dame campus and now live on that same street with my amazing wife, Gina, and our two wonderful and hilarious children, Gianna and Rocco, who make our life so much fun and entertaining!
I attended Saint Joseph grade school and high school before going on to study business at Manchester University for 2 years while playing soccer. After transferring to and graduating from Purdue University, from the nation’s #1 hospitality / restaurant management program, I came back home to my roots to my family restaurant, Rocco’s, where I started working at some capacity from the age of 12, to be part of the fourth generation in our family to help run and operate our famous South Bend institution.
After over a decade of helping to bring Rocco’s to where it is today, it was time for a change. Outside of the family business, my other passion has been in real estate. I’ve studied the local market and potential real estate entrepreneurial avenues since coming back from college in ’06. I eventually found my niche in the rental market. I now own a successful short term rental operation specializing in fully furnished homes available year round for football weekends, graduations, weddings and any other Notre Dame, South Bend and Mishawaka events or visits.
Through this endeavor, I’ve grown to love giving people advice on how to take advantage of what I consider to be the best form of investing you could be involved in, especially when it comes to your own home. I soon realized the only true way to help others as much as I possibly could, was to get my real estate license. So, in addition to owning my own rental business, I am proud to announce that I am now a realtor with Weichert Realtor’s, Gold Star, where I hold licenses in both Michigan and Indiana. The choice to join with Weichert was an easy one. Having the same success, very similar to the environment I grew up in, I immediately knew this was where I belonged.
Being the fourth generation in my family to help run a high volume, constantly growing and successful business, I’ve learned exactly what it takes to be depended on, as well as to make sure all operations are being closely managed and improved so as to always provide the best service to the customer. I was brought up to finish what I started and to treat everything I do, large or small, with the same amount of care and importance. Becoming a self-motivated entrepreneur in the real estate field has provided me with the ability and know how to stay organized with and keep control over the many aspects that occur throughout the home buying and selling process. I have learned the necessary characteristic traits needed to be the kind of realtor that you’ll be able to rely on from the beginning of your home sale or search, through the closing. The relationship we build will continue after the closing and I will always be available with anything home related you may need help with down the road in providing you with contacts and resources I have gathered along the way.
As your realtor, I will work for you with honesty and integrity, always at the high level of tenacity that I’ve had instilled in me from an early age, to ensure that I meet your goals as quickly and efficiently as possible. I will always represent and negotiate for anyone I work with at the same aggressive, yet polite way, that I would for myself or my family. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you or anyone you may know that could use assist
