Managing Broker - SF Lakeside Office
- Don earned his real estate license and began working as a full time, second generation broker in 1996. He joined Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Menlo Park El Camino office in 2001, was promoted to the office’s Assistant Manager in 2008 and completed hundreds of transactions while selling real estate on the San Francisco Peninsula.
- Selling real estate in the Silicon Valley, Don developed an appreciation for the importance of leveraging technology and electronic communications in his real estate business. As a self-proclaimed gadget junkie, he was an early adopter of the iPhone and iPad, and such social media outlets as LinkedIn, Facebook and blogging, using the platforms as new channels to stay in touch with his clients. He was one of the earliest Agents in his area to use DocuSign, an electronic and digital signature service that allowed his clients to complete transactions over long distances without access to faxing, a process that is now growing in popularity among real estate professionals.
- Outside of the office Don is an active member of Rotary International and Studio 33 Actors’ Collective. He is the chairman of the Mid San Francisco Peninsula Chapter of Marriage Equality USA, and teaches a real estate continuing studies course at Stanford University. He also enjoys spending time with his son, James, daughter-in-law, and four grandchildren who live nearby.
