About Frank

Frank’s Bio

A lifelong resident of Monmouth County with deep roots in the area, Frank has worked hard to become Sotheby’s Heritage House’s #1 Office Top Producer for the last 9 years, and his business continues to grow rapidly in both the Monmouth County and Middlesex County real estate markets. He has earned a level of accomplishment that places him among the Top 1% of all roughly 6000 licensed real estate agents in the Monmouth/Ocean area. As an Industrial Engineer by education and a former telecommunications executive of twenty years, Frank brings a mature business savvy, high personal integrity, and keen negotiating expertise to best serve his real estate clients.

Sotheby’s, as a company with 260+ years of marketing experience and a vast array of resources, has more than withstood the test of time. Frank has created a unique marketing system by utilizing Sotheby’s International Realty’s tools as well as many other specialized vendor solutions. This enables him to customize a home marketing system which, in turn, has helped his clients achieve over $100 million in successful closed transactions. By leveraging his time-tested program, Frank sells homes in all price ranges, from $200,000 to $20 million, something most local agents and agencies cannot do well.

As a former successful real estate investor and having managed many property renovation projects, Frank brings a practical real-world experience to assist his clients in making well informed decisions. He has a proven track record as both a highly successful listing agent and credentialed buyer’s agent. In fact, his clients find Frank’s depth of knowledge to be most refreshing and reassuring, as he is able to take much of the stress out of the often complicated process of buying or selling a home.

The Monmouth County Association of Realtors has selected Frank among his peers to serve as the member of the Professional Standards Committee, a body which serves to uphold the Association’s high standard of integrity in the industry.  In addition, Frank has been recognized by the NJAR Circle of Excellence, by whom he’s been granted the platinum award in 2013. In 2012 he was given the gold award, after earning silver/bronze awards consecutively since 2005. Frank has also furthered his real estate education and earned the prestigious designation of Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR). This means that when Frank and his team work with buyers, they have the expertise and training to help ensure buyers make sound, thoughtful purchasing decisions, and most importantly, without overpaying.

Frank and his team place a high value on establishing life-long relationships within their community by being trusted resources and advisors long after the deal closes. Give Frank a call and let him show you exactly what he means when he says… “Your Success Is My Top Priority”
