About me...

 I have found that my clients want to know me before they hire me. That's a fair expectation.  In general, people want to do business with like-minded people. So let me tell you a little bit about myself. 


From a young age I have learned from my family to “treat others as I would have them treat me”. It’s the Golden Rule, and I started teaching it to my children. I believe it goes a long way.  As a result I subscribe to a strict code of ethics and am committed to treating all parties to a transaction honestly.  I do this in order to provide my clients peace of mind long after the transaction is completed. 

 

In a day and age full of risks, liabilities and lawsuits I believe honesty and fairness go a very long way.  

Success is not always measured just by sales. More importantly, it is about relationships built. Appreciating the sometimes small but particular needs of my clients and acting upon them in a more than satisfactory manner is always very rewarding to me.


In order for you to get a feel about who I am as a person, let me briefly talk about how I arrived at the place where I am today.  I was born in Romania, the second of three boys.  To keep us out of trouble, our parents encouraged my siblings and I to study music.  After high school graduation, I moved to Germany where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Piano Performance.  I continued my studies in the USA where I obtained a Master of Music Degree in piano performance.  Both my brothers followed similar paths, and they currently reside in France & Germany where they are still involved in music. 


After many years of teaching, public performances and recordings and having worked as an associate professor at an U.S. University, I decided it was time to explore a different world.  With the support of my wife and young children, I joined RE/MAX and have loved every minute of my adventure.  A teacher can never really stop teaching or being a guide. I am still a teacher, I have only adjusted the subject and my audience.  From time to time, I still play the piano and music is an integral part of my life.  It comes as no surprise that my favourite way to relax is to listen to music and play. I love spending time with my wife and three children.  


My children are in love with skating and hockey, and they love having piano lessons with  their dad.  I try to squeeze a lesson here and there with each of them and I delight in their progress.


I am committed to treating my clients as I treat my own family - that is why my clients keep coming back and refer me to their family and friends.  I provide the latest information, I am honest, I work hard, and I take pride in my work.
