This is where I get to relax and talk about my favorite topic - Real Estate

Howdy!                                                                                                                             May 3, 2007

It's been a while, but I have been busy meeting so many of you AND I just returned from 9 days in Corpus Christi, TX for the Texas International Boat Show!  My family and I had such a great time and it was a lot of fun introducing Corpus to the DR.  The new marina is really beautiful.  I look forward to seeing you guys next year!

I have to tell you that the market is really strong right now.  Since the Donald Trump announcement sales have really picked up.  Not only that, but the economy is growing with more new businesses and projects are progressing faster.  Things were already amped up, but now the DR is on Red Bull!

I want to say hello to all of my regular visitors.  I'm compelled to keep the website current since you guys continue to check in on me.  It's not easy keeping up with all of the price changes for the hot communities, but I'm doing my best.  El Dorado sold out a couple of weeks ago, so now some of the condos are available for resale and some with financing provided by the owner!  Las Dunas, Cap Cana, Playa Turquesa, Stanza Mare, El Dorado, and Punta Perla continue to be the best opportunities around and you can be sure that the prices will continue to increase by about 5% every 2 to 3 months throughout construction.   If you want a great investment check out Las Dunas featured on the home page.  The developer is breaking ground next week on what promises to be a top notch community.  Another fantastic opportunity in the DR!

Yee Haw!

I am wrapping up a crazy week!  The film crew from Pie Town Productions was in town this week filming a new episode of the popular HGTV show "House Hunters International".  Yes, I'm going to be on TV!  I'm so glad it's over because now I can eat all the ribs and potato chips I want.  I believe the episode will be very good and will give viewers a great impression of what it's like down here and what a great investment the Dominican Republic is.  It's beautiful down here and the properties and very nice and the investment opportunities are abundant.  I will let you know when they tell me the show is going to air.  In the mean time, check out the listings we have available, let me know what you're interested in, and come down and see for yourself why people like Donald Trump and others are investing bllions of dollars down here in the DR!  Don't miss out...



Hi!                                                                                                                             February 25, 2007

Has a month passed already?  Time is really flying down here!  I want all of you to know that I am preparing the launch of my new website that focusses on Marina Properties for all of you nautical enthusiasts out there.  The DR  boasts some of the best marinas in the caribbean and I will be showcasing them on the new website on March 22, 2007.  Check it out and let me know what you think.  Stay warm and keep in touch!

Until the next time,



Hello!                                                                                                                           January 17, 2007

Happy New Year!  Feliz ano nuevo!  It's been a while since I've updated this page because I've been so busy meeting many of you!  We are right in the middle of high season and it's buzzing down here.  The weather is great.  What's not to love about mid to high 80's in the middle of January?  Thank you for the calls, but stop telling me how cold you are and just get on a plane and come down to hang out with me on the beach.
On a business note:  El Dorado continues to be the hottest investment in the area and the project is half sold out.  If you've invested start counting your money because the prices will go up AGAIN at the beginning of March and I'm sure sales will continue to be high.  If you're looking to rent or if you need furniture I've officially added those services to my portfolio.  Check out the new pages on the website.  I have a great team and we would love to provide services for you so all you have to do is sign the contract, wire the money, and watch your investment appreciate and earn income for you.  If there's anything else you need, just let me know and it can be done.  My goal is to make this process as easy as possible for you.  
Thank you for all of the e-mails and feedback.  Thank you for visiting the DR, doing business, and refering me to your friends, family, co-workers and business partners.  That let's me kwow that I've done a good job for you and that I'm appreciated.  Please let me know when you book your next trip to the sunny DR to check on your business and have a drink at Soles Chill out Bar on the Beach.  Anytime...


Hi all,                                                                                                                      November 15, 2006

It must be cold out there because it's getting really busy around here!  The golf courses are busy, excursion buses are more full, and my phone is constantly ringing!!!   I almost forgot that next week is Thanksgiving (not a DR holiday).  I did see artificial Christmas trees in the hardware store the other day and it reminded me that the holidays are coming.  I used to be reminded by the changing of the season and the cold that I would get because of it.  Not anymore.  It's still in the 80's here.

I'm glad that many of you are booking your trip for the winter.  I look forward to working with you!  As a reminder, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) will take effect January 8, 2007.  The WHTI requires all those traveling by air to the Caribbean to have a passport.  Check into getting yours before it's too late!

ciao ciao,



Hello my friends,                                                                                                            November 7, 2006

The media loves the Dominican Republic.  If you check out the Links tab you will notice two new articles over the past 10 days.  The word is out about the Dominican Republic and travelers are here and more are coming.  High season is starting and I hope to see all of you down here funning and sunning on the beach with me.  After that we can check out some of the amazing real estate, drive the new highway, and enjoy the caribbean ambiance.  Let me know when you'd like to come and I can help make the arrangements to make your trip the best you've had.

P.S.  I hear that USA3000 has really good rates.  Check them out.

Hasta pronto!



¿Cómo están?                                                                                                                 October 4, 2006

I've seen the news and I know that it's starting to get cold in the States.  Come on down and enjoy a piece of paradise!  I was recently informed that Delta offers direct flights between Chicago and Punta Cana for only $420.  That's not bad at all. 

I'd be happy to coordinate your arrangements on this end and show you how wonderful this community is.  We'll go off the beaten path and hang out with the "locals" as we call ourselves.  We'll eat at great restaurants and even hit a disco or two if you're in the mood.  If you're a golfer my dad can golf a round with you on the 27-hole course at Palma Real for only $35.   You can also try your luck at the casinos (after you've put the deposit on your home or investment ha ha).  If you're an early riser you can go to the gym with me at a resort/spa around the corner.  You tell me what you're interested in.  I'm all about service and meeting/working with great people!

See you soon!



Hi all,                                                                                                                        September 17, 2006

First, I want to thank all of you for making the launch of my website a huge success.  I've enjoyed meeting, e-mailing, and talking with many of you.  I love talking about real estate and all of the exciting things happening down here in the sunny DR.  I'm currently working on a couple of package deals for those of you who don't have millions to invest.  If you want in please let me know ASAP.  As I promised, there's something for everybody.  If I haven't already talked with you please contact me so we can talk in detail about your investment or other real estate interests.




Hola amigos!                                                                                                              September 10, 2006

Thank you for visiting  I am very excited to launch my new website and share some of the great investment opportunities available in the Dominican Republic! 

When Chris and I were looking to leave Philadelphia and move south I didn't realize it would be THIS south, but I'm glad.   We had been to several Caribbean islands looking for investment opportunities, but when we came here and continued to be passed on the road by construction vehicles something inside of us clicked and we knew this was the place to be. 

Not only were there construction projects everywhere, but they were actually being completed!  New highways are being constructed, airports are being built and/or expanded upon, tourism is up and more direct flights are being booked from cities across the U.S. Everybody's talking about the new hot spot in the Caribbean and I am here to give you some perspective from the investment standpoint.

I love real estate and have done very well investing over the years.  I'm excited to share some of the great opportnities I'm putting together down here and help you to realize a great return for your money. 

Be sure to check in with me every week to find out what is going on in the sunny DR.

Thank you again for visiting,



       Well, that's all for now.  Please let me know what you think, and don't forget to answer the trivia questions!
