My family has deep roots in the Santa Clara Valley, and as a third generation resident, I know my way around. Raised in rural Mountain View during the early technology boom, I have watched this valley change shape from many orchards into what it is today.
My first real job was pulling down a barbed-wire fence on a ranch that would one day become the Great America Amusement park. Shortly afterward, and before I was out of high school I volunteered for service in the U.S. Marine Corps. Three years later I returned to enter the workforce and I have lived throughout the Silicon Valley ever since, gradually migrating Southward.
I spent my first career of more than 35 years in technology accumulating business acumen in Silicon Valley and worked in operations and program management at both the largest, and smallest names in the industry, where using strong communication and interpersonal skills, I learned to become a world-class problem solver.
Raising two boys gave me a great reason to participate in the Boy Scouts, and few things have been as gratifying as shaping those young minds and guiding them into becoming respectful, kind, and capable young men. Being an avid outdoorsman and empty nester, I enjoy hiking the high Sierra's, fishing, and tinkering in my garage, none of which I do enough!
Now more than ten years into my real estate career, I bring experience as both a Realtor and national 1031 exchange specialist, with the knowledge, tools, and life skills developed through program management to guide buyers and sellers through their unique transactions. Combining these years of skills, knowledge and ability, I provide the experience you need to successfully complete your next property transaction quickly.
