Professional Interests

My years in the automoblie retail business taught me that the most important thing is to be a good listener, and to focus on what the customer believes is most important. I see myself as a guide, someone who is there to provide information and respectful input so that my customers, in the end, will confident and happy about the choice they have made. For me, this has always been the most rewarding part of being a sales representative. In the field of real estate, I will continue to endeavor to help customers find the residential or commercial property that best suits their needs.

Professional Background

I come from an automotive background and for over thirty years, I ran my family's dealership in West Caldwell, New Jersey. I graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in political science and public administrtion, and studied automotive management for and additional year at the National Auto Dealer's Academy. My real estate experience includes managing several family-owned commercial properties.


National Automobile Dealer Candidate Academy 1985-1986

Montclair State University 1978-1983

Oratory Prep School, Summit, New Jersey 1974-1978

Personal Background

I reside in North Caldwell, New Jersey with my wife, Karen and my two sons, Michael and Alex. I grew up in West Caldwell and attended local schools.

Community Involvement

During my time in the automobile business, I enjoyed sponsoring and participating in local civic events, like the Caldwell Street Fair, and other venues that gave me the opportunity to meet people in my community and provide them with helpful information about the products and services I represented. I was also priviledged to serve for a period of one year on the North Caldwell Borough Planning Board.

Personal Interests

Music, art and history are a special part of my life. I studied piano for many years. Cooking is a favorite passtime and I love trying different kinds of cuisine. Both of my sons are life-long hockey players and so I am a hockey fan and a veteran "hockey dad". I also love to play golf. I have family in Europe and have enjoyed my travels there as well as all over the United States.

I have always considered real estate to be an important investment both financially and emotionally.

My approach both in the Executive Search and Real Estate fields has always been and will remain fulfilling the clients needs and desires.

After college I joined the Navy and wound up in charge of the ships (an aircraft carrier) retail and finance operations. After my tour of duty and an honorable discharge, I was recruited into the Executive Search business and became the top producer for 10 of my 11 years with the firm.

In 1982 I opened my own New York based Executive Search firm and grew it into a very successful mid sized business over a 27-year period. Personally I specialized in creatively handling extremely complicated and sensitive high-level compensation and benefit negotiations, between employer and potential employees.

After selling the firm to my employees in 2009 I wrote and published a fiction novel while completing the sub-division of my 8 acre parcel in North Caldwell which I subsequently sold to a developer.

Having invested personally in a fairly large number of real estate investments over 3 decades I proceeded to obtain my real estate license and joined Prudential NJ Properties (now Berkshire Hathaway Home Services) as a member of the Rampinelli Team.

People who know or have dealt with me simply say, “if a deal is difficult to impossible give it to Hank, he will get it done”
