  • I'm your "go-to" person when you and your staff lack the time to thoroughly investigate individuals, families, corporations, etc.
  • ​I look for accurate answers to your questions and verify the information through numerous primary sources.
  • ​Securing my services is cost-effective for your firm/company. It allows you and your staff to focus on pressing needs rather than time-consuming online, on-site and in-person investigations. Also, my rates are competitive.​
  • I have conducted in-person and online searches and interviews for over thirty years.
  • ​I help you meet deadlines when you're running out of time.



MY OBJECTIVES ARE PROVIDING ACCURATE INFORMATION; HELPING YOU TO REACH YOUR GOALS; AND MAKING YOUR JOB EASIER.
