I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. After first receiving my real estate license in 2003, I began working in the mortgage side. I serviced the East Bay and Tri-Valley area for over 6 years. Alongside my mother, a real estate broker of over 20 years, we helped many families find new homes. I also assisted our clients in restructuring their financial real estate investments and maximizing their buying power.
In 2009, my wife and I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina so that she could pursue a career opportunity. After living there for 18 months, she was offered another position in Los Angeles. During our last five years in Los Angeles, I took a break from real estate in order to focus on raising our children. Now that they are older, it is the time for me to continue my real estate career.
My family has just finally closed on a property of our own this past August, in 2016. Our agent Chris Waybright, who is also a Podley agent, was nothing short of extraordinary. The patience and tolerance she possesses is something that I truly value.
I decided to step foot into the agent side of real estate, this time around. I love interacting with people, and want to have a hand in helping people meet their next real estate milestone. Whether upsizing, downsizing, or planting a new family, I want to be a part of that story. While real estate transactions are complicated, my experience and understanding of the many aspects of real estate will allow me to guide you through the journey as comfortably and smoothly as is possible.

Buying or selling a home is somewhere in between a necessity and a dream, but it is always a process. For many people it may be the largest financial decision they will ever make. As a REALTOR® it is my job to see to it that the process is as seamless as possible. It is my passion to help my clients find the perfect fit that their lifestyle demands – whether it is a, condo, townhouse, or home. Growing up, I spent my life watching my parents – who are both highly successful, Top 1% real estate agents for over 30 years. I observed them make lasting relationships with their clients based on communication, trust and integrity and I was inspired to do the same. One could say that in is in the genes, and often people do. I swiftly found my passion and was recognized in the company with “Rookie of Year” and “Million Dollar Producer” from my brokerage in my very first year in my career.
Dedicated, professional, honest, caring, and enthusiastic is how my clients have described me as a REALTOR. I hold the trust I have earned from my clients as sacred, and the relationships I have cultivated are special to me. Each client relationship is a new journey with unique opportunities to continue providing the world class service they deserve.
In my free time, I am also a writer, saxophone player, advertising consultant and cook. I love swimming in the ocean, it rejuvenates me, keeps me young, and I’d go so far as to say it cleanses me. I love playing jazz saxophone, it allows me to express what the English language falls short of. Be it my professional career or my personal joys, the common denominator to who I am is my pursuit to connect in meaningful ways.
