All About Fred
While it is true that I am a multi-million dollar sales volume agent and a past recipient of the RE/MAX President's Award and the RE/MAX Executive Club, what matters more is that I offer truly outstanding guidance to my Buyers and Sellers. In addition to all of the expected services offered by real estate agents, my clients rate my counseling and negotiating skills, along with integrity, accessibility and sense of humor as the qualities that set me apart from other agents.

As my client, you will be encouraged to call my cell number any time you have a question, need guidance, want a clarification, or are stressed or confused about an issue and need some answers. If you get my voice mail, you will receive a timely call back. My clients tell me they are surprised when they get my voice mail because it rarely happens. Let me know if you would like references from my clients. They are my best promoters and I treasure them all.

I am energized by the beauty of Rhode Island and the diversity and open-mindedness of her people.

If you value what I have described as my strengths and values, we will make a great team for finding you a property or marketing the one you want to sell. So give me a call on my cell phone and let's get started.

20 Tips For Selling Your Home
As a homeowner, you can play an important part in the timely sale of your property. When you take the following steps, you?ll help your RE/MAX Sales Associate sell your home faster, at the best possible price.

The easiest and most reliable way to improve the appeal of your home is to enlist a quality home service professional. The right professional can help you get everything in order - from repainting the kitchen to providing a thorough cleaning - so you can stay focused on more important things. Find a contractor now.


  1. Make the Most of that First Impression
    A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clutter-free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted ? or at least freshly scrubbed ? front door. If it?s autumn, rake the leaves. If it?s winter, shovel the walkways. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home - the better. Find a landscaper or painter to help.

  2. Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends
    Here?s your chance to clean up in real estate. Clean up the living room, the bathroom, the kitchen. If your woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Fresh wallpaper adds charm and value to your property. If you?re worried about time, hire professional cleaners or painters to get your house ready. Remember, prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than hear how great it could look "with a little work." Find a cleaning service or handyman to help.

  3. Check Faucets and Bulbs
    Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks, and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs or faulty wiring leave prospects in the dark. Don?t let little problems detract from what?s right with your home. Find a plumber, electrician or general contractor to help.

  4. Don?t Shut Out a Sale
    If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect?s mind. Don?t try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily plane them away. A little effort on your part can smooth the way toward a closing. Find a handyman to help.

  5. Think Safety
    Homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-set booby traps: roller skates on the stairs, festooned extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low hanging overhead lights. Make your residence as non-perilous as possible for uninitiated visitors.

  6. Make Room for Space
    Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. They?re looking for storage space, too. Make sure your attic and basement are clean and free of unnecessary items. Find a contractor to help.

  7. Consider Your Closets
    The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now?s the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them to charity.

  8. Make Your Bathroom Sparkle
    Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats, and shower curtains. Find a contractor to help.

  9. Create Dream Bedrooms
    Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must.

  10. Open up in the Daytime
    Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how bright and cheery your home is.

  11. Lighten up at Night
    Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights - both inside and outside - when showing your home in the evening. Lights add color and warmth, and make prospects feel welcome.

  12. Avoid Crowd Scenes
    Potential buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they're likely to hurry through. Keep the company present to a minimum.

  13. Watch Your Pets
    Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you're showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way.

  14. Think Volume
    Rock-and-roll will never die. But it might kill a real estate transaction. When it's time to show your home, it's time to turn down the stereo or TV.

  15. Relax
    Be friendly, but don't try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with a minimum of distraction.

  16. Don't Apologize
    No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. If a prospect volunteers a derogatory comment about your home's appearance, let your experienced RE/MAX Associate handle the situation.

  17. Keep a Low Profile
    Nobody knows your home as well as you do. But RE/MAX Sales Associates know buyers - what they need and what they want. Your RE/MAX Associate will have an easier time articulating the virtues of your home if you stay in the background.

  18. Don't Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store
    When prospects come to view your home, don't distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all.

  19. Defer to Experience
    When prospects want to talk price, terms, or other real estate matters, let them speak to an expert - your RE/MAX Sales Associate.

  20. Help Your Agent
    Your RE/MAX Associate will have an easier time selling your home if showings are scheduled through his or her office. You'll appreciate the results!
