LinkedIn Profile

My experience with short sales began in 2006. At that time, shorting Bank of America $2,000 took approximately 3 weeks and the lender’s short sale department consisted of less than 5 short sale negotiators.

A lot has happened over the past 10+ years in the world of short sales in terms of lender guidelines, staffing, processes, and the real estate market in general.

What has not changed is my commitment to providing the highest quality service and advice to Maryland’s homeowners in distress, their Realtors, and their attorneys.

I founded Atlas Home Group with a vision of restoring the dream of home ownership in Maryland by ending the foreclosure crisis in our state one homeowner at a time. And we’re doing just that!

To date, our team has helped hundreds of clients discover and analyze their pre-foreclosure options and assisted them with making sound choices based on concrete information. We take pride in our consultative and educational approach to client relationships and are looking forward to assisting Maryland’s homeowners, and their trusted advisers, in their time of need.

Prior to starting my career in real estate and short sale services, I was an Economist with a Federal Government Agency, Small Business Consultant, and an Entrepreneur. I graduated from St. Mary’s College of Maryland with a degree in Economics and hold an MBA from University of Maryland at College Park. I live in Pikesville, MD with my wife and three children.
