My number one goal as a REALTOR® is to empower my clients to make the best decisions possible in all of their real estate transactions. This means systematically guiding my clients through every stage of a transaction so they gain knowledge and confidence. Empowering my clients also requires close and effective communication. My clients know that the expertise and partnership they need to achieve their goals is always readily at hand.
I bring a diverse background to my real estate business that I leverage to give my clients an edge in our competitive market. As a San Diego native and active real estate investor, I have an intimate knowledge of the city's neighborhoods, the value of its real estate and the foundations of sound real estate investing. Five years professional experience working in home renovation trained me to see beyond a property's current state to find potential value-add renovations that better customize a space to my clients' needs. And having completed multiple historic property evaluations for local developers, I know how to guide my clients through San Diego's historic designation process. But most valuable to my real estate business has been the ten years I spent teaching college before becoming a Realtor. Teaching US History prepared me to break down vast amounts of information into easily communicable forms, a skill which my clients appreciate and one particularly valuable in the complex world of real estate.
Outside of real estate, my beautiful wife, our three-year-old daughter and I spend our free time exploring the natural beauty of San Diego County. We enjoy stand-up-paddle boarding the shores of San Diego Bay, rock climbing desert towers at Valley of the Moon, and hiking the mountain tributaries of the San Diego River. We also share a passion for traveling abroad, making annual trips with our daughter to countries like Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain, and Peru.
If you are looking for a Realtor who brings a background in real estate investment and home renovation and who draws on a decade of experience in education to empower you in the real estate transaction, I look forward to serving you.
