My mantra throughout my professional career is striving to earn respect and confidence. These values carry with me no matter what I do. In the real estate business, it’s all about understanding my client’s goals, time frames and financial restrictions. I am client centric and will suggest alternatives that may not include selling or buying real estate. In other words, I will make recommendations based on your needs and not my pocketbook.
I am a licensed Real Estate Broker. I specialize in all forms of residential and income property, having purchased my first home in 1972 and have had owned various income properties in the past 30 years. Previously to my real estate career, I was employed by various high-tech companies in the Silicon Valley.
