Welcome to my Website

My solid real estate marketing and sales experience, learned over the years since I was first licensed in 1990, can save my clients time, money and frustration. 

I welcome the opportunity to explain the many advantages of working with me and with The Brower Team at Coldwell Banker Prime Properties, the leader in real estate sales in Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties.

My Maximum Exposure Marketing Plan expands on my company's emphasis on using technology to increase the unsurpassed market opportunities for our clients is, including a personal agent website, a property website for each listing, virtual tours and so much more.  All of my properties boast plenty of high-quality photos and in-depth descriptions proudly displayed on Coldwellbankerprime.com.

As a Certified Buyer Representative, I have repeatedly saved my buyer-clients time and money while helping them find the home that best fit their needs and their pocketbook.  I point out not just the home's positive features, but also any negative features that may impact the home's suitability or market value - now or in the future.

Isn't It Time To Stop Wasting Money On Rent?

Are You Ready For A Home Of Your Own?


Have you ever thought about buying your own home?  It isn’t nearly as difficult nor as expensive as you may think.  In less than an hour or so, you can find out if you qualify to purchase and, within two months, you could be closing on your brand new home. Imagine that – in the next two months, you could go from renter to homeowner.  How great is that?

 Is It Complicated?

Yes, I’m not going to lie to you, buying a home can be a complicated process.  But that is actually the wrong question. The right question is “Is it hard?”  The answer to that is a definitive “no”. Why?  Because while the process can be complicated, you only have to handle a small part of the equation – your agent handles the rest.

 Learn More
You can find out more at a Free, No Obligation, Coaching Meeting.  During the meeting, I can cover all of the details you need to know about who is involved in the transaction, what expenses you’ll have and how to avoid paying a commission by accident.  You’ll learn all of the basics you need to know before you start house hunting. (By the way, if you think your parents can tell you how it works, you’re probably wrong. Unless they’ve bought in the last few years, the process is very different than when they purchased.)

 No Obligation
I like to give these Free Coaching Meetings because it means that I end up working with highly educated buyers.  So what do you think? Are you tired of spending your hard-earned money and ending up with nothing except rent receipts?  Have you ever dreamed of owning your own home?  Don’t you owe it to yourself to see if you might turn that dream into reality?

First-Time & Move-Up Home Buyers

I especially enjoy working with First-Time Home Buyers.  Without first-time home buyers, current owners would almost never be able to sell and move up to a new home.  First-time home buyers, with little knowledge or experience in the home buying process, have a greater need for a Certified Buyer Representative to safeguard their best interests. Quite often, it's just a few years later that my "First-Time Homebuyers" become move-up buyers and I help them both sell their current home and buy their new dream home.

Buyer Representation Advantage

As a Certified Buyer Representative, I have received buyer representation training, above and beyond that taught in the initial Real Estate Salesperson Pre-Licensing or Real Estate Associate Broker courses.  This can be a great, money-saving, advantage for my clients.

Free 7 Night Resort Vacations 

All of my successful clients receive, from me personally, a Complimentary 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay at a multitude of possible locations throughout the United States as my "Thank-you" gift for allowing me the opportunity of representing them in what is one of the largest purchases or sales they may ever make.  Optionally, they can receive a $250 Restaurant Gift Card.  My seller clients can opt for using these extras as an incentive to buyers.

Free Homebuyer Consultation

During my free homebuyer coaching calls, I answer all of your questions; help you narrow down your home choices based on your wants, needs and financial situation.  This alone can save you time and money.  You will not waste time looking at homes that are either out of your price range, or waste time looking at lesser, low-priced homes because "you thought it was all you could afford". 

I will help you understand some of the different mortgage programs, including both low and no money down programs, so that you end up buying the best home possible, in the right location for your family, for as little of your money as possible.  I also explain many homeownership advantages, including tax advantages, mortgage pay-down and anticipated appreciation.

Professional Background

I graduated from Adirondack Community College with an AAS in Business Management and Accounting, which has helped me greatly in managing my real estate business and assisting my clients as they analyze their sale or purchase.

I served in the United States Navy for over 20 years, often buying a home and then re-selling 3-4 years later upon my transfer to the next duty station.  I served mostly in administrative and personnel management capacities.  This tremendous career provided me with much helpful knowledge and experience as it relates to buying, selling, negotiating, financing and communicating.

I earned my certification as a Certified Buyer Representative and a Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker to better support and represent my real estate clients.  I have also completed all continuing education requirements, yet still attend occasional presentations to stay abreast of changes in the market, new business practices and changes in real estate laws.  Please be sure to work with an agent who has received extra buyer representation training - and can prove it.


Personal Background

    My 22 years in the United States Navy included a tour during which I served on a heavy cruiser, the USS Newport News (CA-148), which spent 7 months in the Vietnam Combat Zone and visited several Southeast Asia countries.  After completing my first tour of duty, I returned to Queensbury and completed my college degree.

    I married my wonderful wife, Darlene Ann Seeley, in 1971 and we have raised one fabulous son, Joseph, who is a successful, Internet Marketer, and he currently lives in nearby Saratoga Springs, and our new dog named Luna, who is a real joy and challenge. 

    Darlene and I live in Queensbury, attend First Baptist Church of Glens Falls and have lots of family and friends in the local area.  For 19 years, we hosted an annual family reunion at our home, with anywhere from 29 - 77 relatives attending.

Community Involvement

Member First Baptist Church of Glens Falls; Past Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees.  I currently serve on the Board of Trustees.

Contribute support to the "Open Door" food kitchen and "Community Action" food pantry.

Supervisor of Queensbury Men's "Over 30" Basketball League for over 18 years. (Currently on hiatus due to Covid restrictions by Queensbury School system.

Member Glens Falls YMCA and the "Noon-time Basketball Association(NBA)" for over 30 years.



Personal Interests

    I am a sports enthusiast, whether it's playing golf, softball or basketball; pitching horseshoes or shooting pool, bowling, playing darts or watching baseball, football and occasionally golf on TV.  Although not a "star" athlete, I always play to win and love the spirit of honest competition. Give me a call if you are looking for a golfing partner, horseshoe or bowling competition or to get on the basketball court!

    I also work part-time with the Queensbury Department of Parks & Recreation, supervising the men's "Over 30" basketball league, almost all year-around on the Queensbury School Campus.  We're always looking for a few more good men, so if you're a basketball fanatic and are "Over 30", contact the Queensbury Parks & Recreation Office at 518-761-8216 or online at www.Queensbury.net, and I'll see you on the court!

    My wife and I also love to travel and have visited Las Vegas, New Orleans, Palm Springs, Atlantic City, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Cape Cod, the Bahamas, Gatlinburg, Montreal and several resorts in Florida, including "The Villages" - a huge "over-55" active retirement community.  We have also vacationed several times at "Cypress Lakes" in the "Lakeland, Florida area" - and may one day spend our Winters there.  It is a very nice "Over 55" retirement community with many amenities, including golf, tennis, pickleball, horseshoes, two pools, hot tub, shuffleboard and a fitness center.  The clubhouse also offers all sorts of card games, art & crafts, dance, yoga and Sunday services as well as concerts and plays, dinners and a restaurant/bar/dance area.
