My hometown is Apalachin, New York which is a small community south of the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York, between Binghamton and Elmira. Apalachin has a notorious history because it was the home of the 1957 “Gangland Convention” which has been featured in movies and television. Otherwise, it was a nice quiet village to grow up in.
I graduated from Owego Free Academy where I participated in track and cross-country and earned letters for the three years I competed. I also attended Alfred State College where I received a certificate in their automotive specialist program, which I never used, and Broome Community College in the electrical technology program.
I’m married to my bride of over forty years, Deborah. We’ve had three children, of whom two are Air Force officers and one is an artist. My wife retired early from Cornell University and keeps me highly motivated. My daughter, Carrie, is a Major and is stationed at Patrick AF Base which is two hours away. Her twin sister, Sarah, is a Lt. Col. and is the Deputy Commander at Hickam AF Base in Hawaii. Sarah is married to Capt. Tony Cuciti-Ret. and they have my wonderful granddaughter, Amalia. My artistic son, Sean, is married to my sweet daughter-in-law Brittany and they reside in San Mateo, CA.
After retiring, my wife and I moved to Florida and visited many areas throughout the state. The Tampa Bay area offered the best fit for our lifestyle so we decided to settle here. We’re pleased with: weather because we’re very active; the beautiful beaches; the housing options; healthcare; shopping; cultural and sporting events; and career opportunities. I became so excited about the opportunities that I decided to resume helping people fulfill their housing dreams.
I’ve been in the sales profession for over forty years and have been very fortunate to have had a successful career. I’ve been in sales and management for both Fortune 100 and “mom and pop” companies so this experience contributes to a very diverse business background. I believe in hard work and ethical relationships. I listen to my customers and focus on helping them match the best fit for their future home or get the best possible price for your present home. This work ethic has contributed to me earning a number of sales awards. I chose Century 21 Beggins Enterprises because they have the best resources and team in Florida to help my customers sell their largest investment or find their dream home.
