President & Broker

Hi Folks,


Before reading anything else on our web site, I kindly ask you to read this!


I've always prided myself on my honesty and integrity in serving the public. I operate Promax under the same moral compass. Looking back I recall a fellow real estate agent telling me I was too honest to be in real estate. This saddened me deeply.


My passion for real estate started in 1984 when my partner and I bought our first home. It was a new home in wonderful community called Springfield Oaks. We met several times with the on-site sales rep viewing floor plans and making final decisions on the type of home we were looking for. During one of our visits we watched the sales agent struggle to assist a hearing-impaired couple. My partner was fluent in ASL and taught at Gallaudet. The sales agent asked if we would assist! We were delighted to do so. It was then that we discovered that there were few, if any, agents fluent in ASL and serving the deaf community.


We both obtained our real estate licenses, and quit our full time jobs. Thus began my 35 year journey in the real estate profession. Although our initial clientele was the deaf community our service to the community expanded exponentially. The first year however was a lean year. To supplement our income I took a full time position at a private practice law firm assisting 2 attorneys with real estate closings. My primary job was title searching which took me to all the local courthouses! Listening in on court cases was fun stuff for me!


In addition to sales, and discovering the need for good property management, I added property management to our list or services in 1988.  I formed and incorporated Promax in 1990. Starting with just 1 property Promax has grown to 500 properties, at which our portfolio is capped. My goal is quality not volume.  By the way, one of my first clients was a Foreign Service Officer.


Since that time I am proud to share with you that my personal sales volume is $135,000,000.00. Promax total sales and leasing transactions volume since its inception is $249,566,552.00 verified through the Bright MLS system.

What are 5 different roles and responsibilities of property managers?

Professional property management is important because it helps landlords maximize their rental income, while also protecting their investment.

A professional manager will screen tenants carefully, handle all the day-to-day tasks associated with running a rental property, and respond quickly to any problems that arise. This peace of mind is worth the cost of hiring a professional manager. 


The roles and responsibilities of a property manager can vary depending on the size and type of property they are managing.

Generally, however, these are five key duties that most managers will be responsible for:

Maintaining the condition of the property: This includes tasks like coordinating repairs and renovations, performing regular inspections, and making sure that common areas are clean and well-maintained.

Handling finances: A big part of a manager's job is keeping track of the income and expenses associated with the property. This includes collecting rent from tenants, paying bills related to upkeep and maintenance, and preparing financial reports for the owner (or owners).

Managing Tenants: Another Significant Responsibility is Dealing with Tenant Issues as They Arise; This Can Include Everything from Handling Complaints to Processing Evictions (in Extreme Cases). In addition to addressing problems as they come up, good property managers also work proactively to prevent issues by carefully screening potential tenants before approving them for tenancy.

Complying with Laws and Regulations: Property management also involves understanding and adhering to all relevant state and federal laws pertaining to things like housing discrimination, fair housing practices, lead paint disclosure, etc. Additionally, many municipalities have their own set of rules governing rental properties which must be followed.

Marketing Vacant Units: One Final Essential Task Is Finding New Tenants When Units Become Available; This Generally Means Advertising Vacancies Online or in Print Media, Showing Spaces to Interested Parties, and Processing Applications and Leases.

We understand the importance of accounting, maintenance, repairs, emergency response, inspections, and marketing for your home.
