I entered the Real Estate business in 2000 having obtained my sales license my senior year of high school at the age of 18. I practiced during the summers while attending the University of Vermont, where I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Management. Post-college I traveled around the U.S. and worked as a handyman mainly in Colorado and Alaska. I have since settled back into the beautiful Northeast Kingdom and our family business where I am now a Managing Broker. I married my long time sweet heart, Megan, in July of 2012, and welcomed our first son Brock into the world in November 2013. We are currently waiting on the arrival of our newest addition in late 2015. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, hunting, soccer, riding ATVs, snowmobiling, skiing, and snowshoeing. I was the 2012-13 Orleans County Board of Realtors President. From 2009-2011, I have been the #1 CENTURY 21 Agent in Vermont in terms of units sold. I was also named Orleans County Board of Realtors 2009 Realtor of the Year. Our top producing team would be honored to assist you in any of your real estate endeavors!
I specialize in commercial property and land. I am U.S.A.F. veteran, and long-time broker and certified general appraiser. I am project manager for Kingdomcome, an innovative, 250-unit subdivision located at the Newport Country Club. Century 21 Farm & Forest Realty is the exclusive sales agency. I live with my wife of 44 years, Karen, on Lake Memphremagog. I have over 40 years of real estate, fishing and hunting experience ready to share with you.
After a stint in Tahiti & Hawaii, I worked in communications for the Ministry of International Relations in Los Angeles. I also established a business, assisting real estate brokers to market vacant properties and found my passion: dealing in real estate. But I missed the countryside and relocated to Colorado for 4 years. I am now in my 6th year with Century 21 Farm & Forest in beautiful Northeast Kingdom and have enjoyed every minute serving customers and clients. I work according to their schedule - 7 days/week. Originally from Québec, I am fluent in French & English.

I have been associated with CENTURY 21 Farm & Forest since 1996. Helping individuals or families find that special home is a challenge I love. Knowing the importance of realizing that a dream and making it come true, whether buying or selling is very rewarding. If you are relocating, retiring or buying a vacation home in the Northeast Kingdom of VT is the place to be. The many lakes, manicured golf courses or top notch ski areas, make the NEK a hot spot in the Real Estate Market. I also specialize in commercial properties as well, give me a call, you'll be glad you did
