Since 2002, I have consistently been recognized as a top producer in Real Estate sales. I have represented both buyers and sellers in single family homes, condos, town homes and land deals, as well as investors purchasing and selling single family homes & multiple unit dwellings. (Including 1031 exchanges) I have the experience and tools needed to successfully negotiate and “close the deal” in any market. My clients put their trust in me and I deliver. My method is simple, I treat my clients as if they are a family member and/or my only client. My client "needs" are always paramount. We work as a team to achieve your goals. I understand that communication is the key to any successful deal.
Continuing education is very important to me because of the constant changing market. In addition to my many awards and achievement letters, I am constantly adding “designations” to my resume for better client service. They include:
- REALTOR, NAR, CAR, Bay East Association of Realtors
- CRS: Certified Residential Specialist
- SRES: Seniors Real Estate Specialist
- GRI: Graduate Real Estate Institute
- CNE Certified Negotiation Expert
Marketing is a passion for me and is essential in this real estate market. To use one venue of advertising is not enough. Multiple resources are used in my arsenal of advertisements to best market the property. As a listing agent, I “tap-in” to my talents, experience and contacts from my home remodeling days. I work closely with stager's, contractors and landscapers to get the property in the best condition for the sale.
Finally, I am a former resident of the mid-west, Chicago area. My parents relocated our family to Pleasanton, CA in 1975. I was 12 yrs old at the time. I understand the hardships of moving across country and the wonderful benefits of living in California, specifically the East Bay. Both my parents were in the business of real estate for several decades as successful Real Estate Brokers, I grew-up in real estate. I saw first-hand the changing CA housing market since the 70's. Also, my wife of 29 years, Diane, had been a Mortgage Broker for 15 years from 1992-2007. In 2007, Diane chose to follow her calling and now works in the business of hospice care as a hospital/patient liaison. With my close alliances within the real estate community, service skills, marketing knowledge and over 100 million dollars in closed sales, I am well equipped to help you make your next move.
