Greetings from “Your Broker with the Personal Touch”.
Perhaps you are interested to know about how and why I choose to become a Real Estate Professional, and how much pleasure it gives me to serve you for over 20 years in our beautiful Santa Barbara.
Q. How did you get started in real estate?
I began my real estate career over 34 years ago in the Bay area where I was born and raised. Even in grammar school I loved going to open houses and looking at properties, dreaming of owning real estate one day. After graduating from college and working for 10 years in a totally unrelated field, my best friend said to me one day, ”You should go into real estate, you’d be very good at it!” So my career began…
For the past 20 years I’ve had the great pleasure to work in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. These years have been filled with many wonderful memories of so many clients who have also become great friends. I have been involved in numerous transactions, varying from luxury estates and historic ranches to condos and lots. My clients range from first time buyers to clients with multiple homes and real estate investors. I’ve had the pleasure of serving buyers and sellers from Santa Barbara, Montecito, Hope Ranch, Santa Ynez Valley, as well as the surrounding areas.
Q. What is you core philosophy concerning real estate sales?
Dedicated to being a cut above, I genuinely care about my clients and have a profound understanding of how demanding and complex it can be selling and/or purchasing property. My philosophy is embedded in the passion to work with integrity, loyalty, and professionalism.
After all, in most cases, buying property will be the largest purchase a person will make in a lifetime. I see my vocation as a personal advocate for my clients, continuously looking out for their best interest before, during and after every transaction. My attention is kept on the detail and on the highest level of quality in marketing, selling, and overseeing every escrow through to a successful close.
Q. What do you enjoy when you’re not selling real estate?
I’m passionate about Santa Barbara and I am a strong supporter of several charitable organizations and love giving back to my community. I have honored sponsorships, served as a board member as well as volunteered to many various non-profits. The rare free time that I have, I enjoy spending with friends, hosting parties, going out to the fine restaurants of Santa Barbara and wine tasting up in the Santa Ynez Valley.
Other interests are attending the theatre, watching movies, taking long walks on the beach, and sailing along the coast of Santa Barbara. The view of the city and mountains from the water is simply breathtaking.
Q. Where do you want your career to take you?
I absolutely love what I do and plan to continue with this fulfilling career as long as possible. In order to serve my clients needs, I will carry on with educating myself and implementing today’s technology to the highest level. I have always believed in the motto “You are never too old to learn something new!” I will maintain to serve the needs of my real estate buyers and sellers, working to keep a respectable reputation and be an inspiration to those around me. I will remain dedicated to my craft, stay involved in the community, and sing the praises of our beautiful Santa Barbara, a city so enriched with world-class art, culture, entertainment, and remarkable people.
