I am the former owner of a very successful Commercial Real Estate Company in New Jersey which I recently sold. I have over 25 years of Commercial Real Estate experience and over 200 million dollars in personal sales. My expertise was in listing, contract negotiations, marketing and property development. I was all about business; however, I wanted to do something more creative and fun.

I began developing my own projects back in 2002 and began with a modular addition of four apartment units on top of an existing 4,000 sf building. This began my association with Mike Fasheh who did the original design and managed the project. The project is located in Hackensack NJ. I was very pleased with the results, and a few years later, I sold the building for a nice profit. I then purchased a one story building at 254 State Street in Hackensack NJ and had it approved for two units a two story addition on the existing building. This project boasted a 2,000 sf penthouse unit with soaring ceilings and skylights, which was built as a duplex with its own private elevator. I built this project while continuing to run my Real Estate Company on the ground level. It took four months to get the final Certificate of Occupancy. Recently, we completed a two story home located near the shore in Lake Como, It was completed in 2010. This home has a reverse floor plan with a large open loft like second floor with four huge skylights hovering over a custom kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, living room, family room and dining room, a half bath, as well as a master bedroom suite with spa inspired custom bath.

Back in 1998, while traveling from Kauai, I had a conversation with a woman who was in the high end home vacation rental business. She had homes all over the world and this intrigued me. I started to research information and bought my first property in Goodyear, Az., at Estrella Mountain Ranch. It is a custom home with a pool and spa and great views! I went on and purchased Poipu Villa Vista in Kauai, Hawaii with ocean, golf course, mountain and crater views, and an international vacation home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with a rooftop deck and views of the entire city. Our latest purchase was in Lake Como, New Jersey USA. It is a seaside community a half block from the lake and eight blocks from the ocean. Owning vacation properties gives me a chance to be creative in renovating and decorating custom homes to correspond with their locations. Our goal is to have the stay for our guests become a special and unique experience. We live in a stressful world and each property has a calming effect that our guests love. They let us know we have achieved this by their comments!
