Broker Associate, DRE #01237892
You could say that my life has evolved around houses; at first building them as a carpenter, then as a Licensed General Contractor, and for the last 30 years as a Real Estate Broker helping folks buy and sell their homes.
During the 90’s I worked exclusively as a Commercial Broker in Richmond, Va receiving a Top Producer award in ‘96. Marie and I, with our two daughters Jessica and Amber moved to Santa Cruz in ’97 and never looked back~we think of Santa Cruz as the Cat’s Meow. In ’98 we were blessed with our third daughter, a Santa Cruz Native~Alexandra. What a great place to raise a Family!
As fate would have it, the broker who helped us buy our first home recruited us in ’98, just when Silicon Valley was taking off~so we hit the ground running working for The Real Estate Center, in downtown Santa Cruz. In 2004 we were offered the ownership of the brokerage and the building. In 2008 we were approached by David and Sally Lyng and proudly merged our interest with David Lyng & Associates! They have been continuously recognized as the Premier Real Estate Brokerage Firm in the Monterey Bay Area with 5 offices and over 200 agents and a Billion Dollars in sales in 2022! My personal production has been consistently in the Top 10, garnering the prestigious President’s Elite Club Award each year since joining David Lyng & Assoc.
Since our arrival here, I have been blessed with the acquaintance of over over 500 clients, 330 buyers and 300 sellers, and nearly a billion dollars in sales, many with whom I remain good friends, many who continuously refer me to their friends and colleagues. I am energetic, positive and proactive and feel I have a lot to offer anyone thinking about buying or selling any type of Real Estate. I love what I do and would be honored to assist you or someone you know with their Real Estate needs!
