What is your typical process for working with a new client?

Getting to know them and understand their goals for either buying, or selling a home. I establish rapport quickly and make myself available for anything my client needs. I lead them through the process every step of the way and my primary goal is to make the process as easy and stress free as possible for the client.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Look for an agent who listens to you and understands your needs and goals. They should be experienced and they should have access to the best marketing collateral in the business. That person should be trustworthy and reliable. They should be easily accessible and should go above and beyond for their client.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

The entrepreneurial nature of the business. The ability to be your own CEO. I can manage my business the way I want to manage it.

What services are you most excited to offer?

I love working with both buyers and sellers and using my expertise to help them achieve their goals. I am excited to offer to my clients all of the amazing marketing collateral, tools and technology that Compass provides for me and my clients.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

The reactions that are the most memorable and satisfying though are the simple smiles, handshakes or hugs that clients share with me when a truly great result has been achieved.

What makes your business stand apart?

I think what makes me stand apart is my ability to really listen to what my clients want and need for their home purchase, or sale. I also think I excel at learning and adapting as the business has changed over the years. I earn my client's trust. I am level headed and am known for being reliable and honest.

How many years have you been in business?

I've been in the Real Estate business for 18 years

What do clients have to say about you?

Zachary is fantastic from beginning to end! He listens and works tirelessly to get the result you want! He's very accessible, detail oriented, professional and responsive. I would highly recommend him to anyone, you will not be disappointed!" - ESW
