For a long time as a buyer, seller and investor, I looked for reliable, expert representation for my family. I eventually decided to do it myself, and have been practicing as an independent broker for years.

Careers in the Navy, foreign service and international business prepared me to be able to gather and analyze information, negotiate, and manage projects to conclusion. In the Navy we used to say, You get what you inspect. So, in my practice I have no assistants or transaction coordinators, because buying or selling a home is an intensely personal experience which I find it best not delegated. I do have access to professionals whom I consult to better serve my clients: photographers, architects, contractors, home and roof inspectors. But when you call me, I am the one picking up the phone, and I am the one personally guiding the client through the purchase or the sale of the home.

I am a member of the National, California and San Diego Associations of REALTORS®, and abide by the REALTOR® Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. I hold several real estate-related designations and certifications, including Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®), and e-PRO® Certification for Internet Professionalism.
