I was born in Bronx, NY, and grew up in northern New Jersey. After graduating from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, I returned to New Jersey and worked for 10 years in the consumer (beauty) products industry as VP of Sales and Marketing for Karina, Inc. After the company was sold, I moved to Sarasota in the fall of 1999. In 2004 I met my beautiful wife, Shelley Anne, who has lived in the Sarasota area her entire life. Together we have volunteered at the Gulf Shore Animal League, helping rescue feral cats. Shelley has also volunteered at the Suncoast Humane Society, and I volunteered to serve the community as Real Estate representative for the Community Economic Development Advisory Board (CEDAB) for the City of North Port, at the request of the City Commission. I obtained my Real Estate license in 2012 and have enjoyed helping people buy and sell real estate ever since. I will be happy to help you with all your real estate needs. I hope you enjoy this website and please do not hesitate to contact me at 941-468-1473 or email StepHome941@aol.com and let me know how I can best be of assistance.
