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.
