Following graduation from Cal Poly State University and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Science, Brad Berch moved to Bend Oregon to work on a purebred cattle ranch.
After experiencing a "chance in a life time" opportunity to live and work on an 18,000 acre ranch, Brad moved back to California and then Florida where Brad worked for a NASA contractor for the next 14 years. Some of the highlights of Brad's career with the Space Shuttle program included work as a Scuba Diver, Aerospace Technician, Propulsion Engineer and eventually a Project Manager for a major Spacelab Mission (Neurolab).
During this time as a NASA contractor, Brad earned his Master's Degree from Florida Tech (1992).
With the "LAND" calling him…, Brad left the space program and started his Real Estate Career in 1998. In 2000, Brad expanded his marketing focus on the needs of rural property buyers and sellers. With Brad's past experience living and working on ranch properties, along with owning a private vineyard of his own, Brad is well grounded with the needs and concerns of "Country Property" owners, buyers and sellers.
Brad's latest move in 2015, was to join his competitor and friend Kerry Mormann during the launching of the new "Ranch & Lifestyle Division" that Kerry was starting at the Warren Buffett owned "Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices". The Ranch & Lifestyle Division Team will enable Country Property Buyers and Sellers to take advantage of our combined many years of experience, reputation and local knowledge. The marketing tools and horsepower provided to the team, as members of the Warren Buffett owned Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, will enable us to market our properties locally, regionally and internationally.
With Kerry Mormann based in Santa Barbara and the Montecito Office and Brad based in the Los Olivos Office, and living in Los Alamos, we have Santa Barbara County well covered. Brad's close location and previous residence in San Luis Obispo County (Arroyo Grande) will enable Brad and the Ranch & Lifestyle Division Team to work well with Buyers and Sellers in San Luis Obispo County as well.
Brad works with Real Estate Buyers and Sellers in both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Brad enjoys making people's dreams come true, whether it is rural ranch properties, ocean front estates, vineyards, horse properties or distinctive residential estates.
