insanely great service

Your home is important to you, let us guide you through the process

My personal life

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I have been a part of the Los Gatos community for over forty five years.  My wife, Deborah and I have enjoyed raising our two boys in this same community we grew up in. We have been involved in youth sports, school events and community activities. I enjoy skiing, fishing, biking and hiking. Additionally, I enjoy traveling, swimming, a good movie or TV show and spending time with family and friends.

A career in real estate

For over twenty five years I have worked as a real estate broker selling homes throughout Silicon Valley. I hold a masters degree in real estate finance and I am a licensed general contractor (currently inactive).

My level of experience in real estate sales, marketing, and development allows me to offer my clients an invaluable insight and perspective of the Silicon Valley real estate market. Whether it is information on remodeling, dealing with retirement thoughts, estate planning, investment properties, or helping a friend or family member buy or sell real estate, I want to be the first person you think about for your real estate needs. I take great pride in leading my clients through a successful and enjoyable real estate transaction and I look forward to working with you.

I am associated with Sereno Group, a premier, locally owned residential real estate company based in Los Gatos.  I am also fortunate to be partnering with an old friend and long time colleague Brian Bernasconi, a Los Gatos native who has worked as a real estate broker for over 16 years.

WE VALUE TRUST

Brian and I want to be your trusted real estate advisors today and in the future.  We want to be the first people you think about calling to assist with all of your real estate needs.
