Merlin constantly strives to learn as much as he can, be an inspiration where he goes and be of service where he is.
As a resident of Berks County for over 20 years, Merlin has a vast knowledge of the area. In 2011, he became a Licensed Real Estate Agent and REALTOR®. In 2012, he received a prestigious designation, known as Certified Distressed Property Expert®. This qualified him to provide options for homeowners who are underwater, have defaulted on their mortgages, or are facing foreclosure.
Before becoming a Realtor® he worked in residential construction, built many custom homes, was a heavy equipment operator doing industrial demolition, worked in commercial construction management, and lastly, inspected houses as a Certified Residential Inspector (2010-2013). Merlin prides himself on personal development, extensive education, and volunteering in his community. This, in turn, keeps him informed, relevant, and professional. Here are a few of his involvements: Vice President of Par District 4 Diversity Committee Chairman ( 2019), Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, on the board of directors of the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors®, Chairman for PA Young Professional Network Advisory Committee (2017), Vice-Chair for Diversity Committee (Pennsylvania Association of Realtors® 2018), on the Council of Residential Specialists and much more!
His philosophy is simple: Merlin's clients come first. He pledges to be in constant communication, keeping you fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. He believes that if you're not left with an amazing experience, he hasn't done his job. He doesn't measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of you, his client.
