My talent is making connections between people. For every seller of a property there is a “right” buyer; they simply need to find and recognize each other. That’s what I do best. Whether looking to purchase or to sell, you can depend on me to help make that vital connection. With my background, contacts and skills, I can offer information, options, opportunities, and suggestions to help you reach your goal.

Having worked around the world, I returned here, where I grew up, where I’m truly at home, to raise my children. With a degree in geography, I became a student of our region’s wetlands, rivers, farmland, and coastlines. Through my involvement in civic organizations, I became a student of our neighborhoods, communities, arts, industry, parks, preserves and open spaces.

Prior to children (Go Blue/Go Green) I worked as a researcher on Wall Street and as Assistant Vice President in Tokyo. I was certified as a Financial Planner by the IBCFP, which includes registration with SEC and NASD, and licenses in Series 7, Michigan 63, Life, Health and Variable Annuities.

You want someone who will understand your needs and protect your interests. Most of all, you want a creative problem solver. That’s who I am. Let’s talk.

Ray began his real estate career while pursuing a marketing degree. As an undergrad, he joined the Slavik Companies of Southfield, Michigan, a company with a large presence in Ann Arbor. Their business included new home construction and sales, numerous apartment complexes, offices, and commercial buildings.

In his senior year, Ray joined McKinley Associates as Vice President with responsibilities over all new construction, property management, sales, and leasing. Geographically, their activities and properties covered numerous states from Pittsburgh to Oklahoma City.
