My Philosophy

To me, real estate is about relationships. It’s about caring enough to discover what is truly important to a family, couple or individual, and using that knowledge to find the home that best embodies those particular values. I get a real sense of accomplishment from doing my homework, asking the right questions, and listening carefully to each client’s answers so that together, we can make the most well-informed, advantageous, and confident decisions.

My Principles

My principles are deeply rooted in a community that has given me so much. Above all else, I value persistence, enthusiasm, and integrity. These are principles that I infuse into my business practices not just through the transaction process, but in my role as a resource to clients long after they've moved in.

My Experience

Having negotiated everything from small contracts to million dollar deals, my portfolio speaks to the insights I’ve gained along the way. In addition to helping hundreds of families and individuals successfully buy or sell their Central Coast homes, I leverage my past experience on the Architectural Review Commission to give me an edge when faced with obscure details that can prolong or threaten a deal.

My Background

Prior to being a real estate broker, I worked for over 20 years in management, operations, and consulting. From earning my MBA and working in a large Atlanta medical center as the Director of Cardiopulmonary Services, to acting as the Senior Director of Business Development for a leading rehabilitation program in St. Louis – I’ve developed a broad skill set that helps me identify needs, find creative solutions, and negotiate complicated contracts.

California Coastal Real Estate is about doing things differently. To learn more, please email me at [email protected], or call me directly at 805-458-5506.
