My Parents were Brokers in Orange County California, My brothers and sisters were loan officers, escrow officers and title officers so family gatherings were always centered about what was going on in real estate.
I invested the first half of my career in the Title Insurance Industry. After 27 years I retired from Title as an executive Vice-President in charge of Southern California operations, with 9 offices and over 100 employees.
I entered the lending field in 1997 and invested the next 4 years learning how the Lending field worked, both retail and back office.
That is where I learned my passion was in helping people buy, sell and invest wisely in real estate. Using my network and resources to make magic happen when only road blocks were there, before.
Fast forward 20 years and 590 closings later (Dec 2019) and my passion for helping both young and old, wealthy and those who are looking to gain wealth succeed with their real estate plans is as strong as ever.
A few of the achievements I have enjoyed over the past 20 years are:
Closing over 590 transactions.
Helping my associates close thousands more.
Managing a Nationwide Real Estate Company through the 2008 market correction.
Educating and training hundreds of agents since 2006.
Making a contribution to the local community through supporting youth arts, sports and charity functions.
Plus raising 2 great boys, maintaining a great marriage for 39 years and encouraging healthy living lifestyles.
Life is a journey, failures are a part of it. Learning and growing from those failures is a key to success. But the real success comes from helping others benefit from your lessons learned, so they can profit and grow and achieve more than they thought possible.
