I grew up in a real estate family, working on rental properties as a kid. I earned my allowance doing everything from cleanup to roofing. My father's insight into real estate investing, financing, and Realtors was invaluable. In 1985, a family friend who was having no luck selling his rundown rental made me an offer. He said he would help with the financing if I took it off his hands. I said “yes” on the spot. Over the next year, I cleaned, painted, and remodeled it. In the end, it still wasn’t a Taj Mahal, but I sold it and put the profits toward two more homes. One to live in and another to fix up. I continued doing fixer-upper projects for the next several years, became a licensed Realtor®, then started getting requests from others to buy and sell homes. So, I did that too and really liked it.
In 1988 I became a full-time Realtor®, joining the largest firm in California as one of their youngest agents. In 1995 I became a real estate broker and started my own brokerage. For the next 25 years, I trained and managed agents while representing clients as a full-time Realtor®. I helped over a thousand clients buy or sell during that time. In 2019, after overseeing as many as 4 offices and 60 agents at the peak, I stepped away as the company broker and joined Remax Accord. I researched other brokerages and they were a clear choice.
I'm a Bay Area native, graduated from Bellarmine High in San Jose, an undergraduate at Saint Mary's, and continuing education at Stanford. I live in Danville and my newest hobby is pickleball due to the pandemic's restrictions on indoor activities. Being patient and responsive is what I take pride in. The added experience from home construction and as a brokerage owner can provide an edge for clients when buying and selling.
