GRI, ABR - Associate Broker
My connection to Harbor Country began in the early 70's coming here with my folks during the summer seasons. As years passed and being well established in my career, I returned to Harbor Country in search of a weekend retreat and more importantly, a new lifestyle. My goal was to find a place to escape the demands of my fast-paced career in the medical profession at RUSH Medical Center Outpatient Oncology, a position that I loved.
During the late 90’s I purchased a small cottage nestled under towering pines in Lakeside, just a short stroll to the beach and minutes to all of the Harbor Country attractions.
The calm and relaxation I felt while weekending at my retreat soon reinforced my decision to become a full-time Harbor Country resident. Commuting daily to the city was worth the time and expense, however in late 2004, I chose to leave my position and re-invent myself.
Within a year of starting my career as a Harbor Country Realtor, I became a top-producing member of the Southwest Michigan MLS. My love and knowledge of the Southwest Michigan area coupled with my prior multi-faceted real estate experience can offer you the highest professionalism in the industry. I hold licensure in Michigan & Indiana and have earned the ABR real estate designation.
My market expertise extends along the Shore of Indiana through Saugatuck, Michigan and beyond.
Clients are saying:
"We put my mothers house up for sale. It was jam packed with stuff. Mario came in and made suggestions that required a little elbow grease and paint. He staged the house eliminating the clutter and had photos taken that brought out the best features of the house. When I saw the photos online, I couldn't believe how nice things looked. The house had consistent viewings and sold in a reasonable time. We were happy with every aspect of dealing with Mario. We live out of state and felt comfortable with our long distance relationship. Phones calls and emails were always responded to in a timely manner."
