Your home is important to you, let us guide you through the process
My personal life
I was born and raised in Los Gatos. I graduated from Los Gatos High in 1986. I have lived a good part of my life in the Bay Area including Los Gatos, Campbell, San Jose, Palo Alto and San Francisco. I also lived in New York City and abroad in Sydney, Australia and Copenhagen, Denmark. I have also had the good fortune to travel a great deal and see many fascinating parts of the world.
My wife, Christina, and I married in 1996. We have two children, Dominic and Maia, who go to school here in Los Gatos. We have a great family. We are lucky that we are all so healthy, that we all love each other and that we all get along as well as we do. We are truly blessed in this respect.
A career in real estate
I have been selling real estate full time since 2002. Although I work in all communities throughout the Bay Area, I tend to work primarily in Los Gatos, the Los Gatos Mountains, Saratoga, Campbell and the Almaden, Cambrian and Willow Glen areas of San Jose.
Meaningful and important decisions
One of the most rewarding aspects of what I do is that I get to spend very personal time with people and families as we walk together through some of the most important and meaningful experiences of their lives.
This is a responsibility I both enjoy and take very seriously.
A passion for what I do
I am very good at what I do. Each day in real estate is a new and interesting adventure where there is a great deal of money on the line and outcomes are extremely important to all parties involved. I am constantly challenged by how to provide more valuable service and take better care of my clients while managing complex situations and negotiate favorable outcomes on their behalf.
