Integrity, attentiveness, credibility and earnest enthusiasm, those are the qualities that describe Tom’s approach in serving his clients. From the first moment you meet him, Tom has a way of putting people at ease and making them know they're in good hands.
In his many years as a former fire protection specialist, Tom established himself as the consummate professional, and the ultimate resource people could rely upon. When this lifelong New Yorker decided to apply his seasoned skills to real estate, clients expected and received nothing less.
A lifelong Brooklyn resident, Tom has witnessed the transition and revitalization of a number of Brooklyn neighborhoods, from Sunset Park where he grew up, to Carroll Gardens where he and his wife rented their first apartment, to Clinton Hill where he purchased his first co-op, to Greenwood Heights, where his daughter took her first steps. Presently, he, his wife, their two young children, and their mischievous cat live in vibrant Crown Heights.
Tom holds a BA degree in Fire Science and an MS degree in Protection Management from the City University of New York (John Jay) and is fluent in Spanish. He spent eight years working for the New York City Fire Department before becoming Director of Educational Services for a major fire services consulting company. Prior to entering real estate, Tom oversaw fire safety operations at a major New York City university where he created and implemented their fire safety program.
