As a sailor, I've succesfully navigated my way through various waters and conditions. As a Realtor with more than 20 years experience, I've successfully navigated buyers and sellers through all the different markets, beginning when mortgage rates were 16% and the prime rate was 21%. I've successfully guided buyers and sellers through the aerospace boom and the dot-com bust. For 16 years I was among the top agents (among 70) in the Santa Monica office of Fred Sands Realtors.
I took a break from real estate on the westside and moved to Ventura where I opened a successful business. That business became four and I recently sold them to get back into the business I enjoy; helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals and acquire wealth through real estate. My objectvie with every buyer and seller is to make the sales or purchase process stress-free and actually, enjoyable! I especially like working with first-time buyers and if you are one, you'll find I have infinite patience in guiding you through what I know can seem like an overwhelming process.
My philosophy in working with clients is to establish a relationship that goes beyond the close of escrow. While I certainly believe in and appreciate how technology has improved our business, I also still believe that real estate is a "people" business and therefore I value the importance of personalized service and face-to-face contact.
As part of my endeavor to keep growing ways to help my clients, I'm now also involved with being a representative (not affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties) for a program that allows clients who are facing capital gains from the sale of their residence, income property, a business or even stocks to be able to defer those taxes with a "Deferred Sales Trust". If you happen to be in the position of wishing you could liquidate your property but feel you can't because of the capital gains, please contact me regarding this program.
