Family's heritage in a real estate dealings throughout the Bay Area, Northern California and several states continues to be active, a practice spanning well over a century.  This picture is of my great Grandfather in the late 1880’s, and myself recently, standing at the front gate to our Los Gatos home.  I have been a resident here all my life and involved in real estate that entire time. My team and I are looking forward in helping you with your legacy, wherever it is you want that to begin or expand into. Gatos has been my hometown for my entire life. After graduating from Pepperdine University in 1993, I returned to Los Gatos, opened my real estate practice, married my best friend Joni, and raised our two children in this lovely town. Working in the real estate industry for decades, has allowed us to continually grow our family with the clients I am blessed to share our lives with. 

From my nearly 30 years of experience as a real estate professional, I am proud of my award-winning reputation for excellence, being known for my negotiation skills, and the use of cutting-edge technology.  My practice has taken me to many communities, here in the Silicon Valley, Northern California, Hawaii, and the Nation.

Real estate is the cornerstone of all our legacy’s, it becomes the center of our universe. Throughout my career I have successfully helped countless other individuals and families achieve their real estate goals and dreams as buyer’s seller’s or investor’s.  It has been and always will be important to me that everyone knows they can lean on me as their trusted advisor.  My history proves I keep the process fluid, successful and as stressful as possible.Realtor Photo
