This is what I believe
I believe in serving. I believe that helping others to achieve their goals is the key to my success. In my business career, I have worked with people from all walks of life, and it's my passionate commitment to their needs that keeps them coming back.
Here is my process
I listen, ask questions, and seek to understand the needs of my clients. My goal is to provide relevant information so clients can make informed decisions. My services include developing and executing marketing plans, relentlessly pursuing homes on the market, determining market value, contract negotiation, escrow management, re-location services, and the many other aspects of a successful real estate relationship.
Here is my story
I grew up in San Jose, CA in a wonderfully middle class family. I had two loving parents that drove me to excel at whatever I chose to do. I had the good fortune to be a decent football player and landed a football scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley - Go Bears! After college I began a 20 year career with Macy's. Up the corporate ladder I climbed moving all over the state. I managed Macy's stores in Santa Rosa, Northridge, San Diego, and Fairfield. I was a retail warrior. Along the way I had the good fortune to meet my wife Sue, and we have a daughter named Samantha. After moving back to Northern California and settling in El Dorado Hills, it was time to let go of the corporate career and focus more on my family. I chose to work in Real Estate. It has been a great fit for my personality and my commitment to serve.
