I have been selling real estate full-time on the mid-peninsula since 2004 with Keller Williams Realty. I chose to join Keller Williams for its education-based and cultural model. The KW culture teaches and encourages a culture of giving back and sharing knowledge that has inspired a level of cooperation between agents and offices that doesn’t exist in other companies. In fact, Stanford Graduate School of Business studied the Keller William culture and now teaches business students about the importance of culture.
I am local homeowner living in the walkable Hayward Park neighborhood of San Mateo with my wife Kelli and our two dogs, Maru and Maggie, plus our kitties, Ellie Grace, Leonard, George and Ralph. In addition, I am a Burlingame property owner and real estate investor. I feel my success in serving my clients, both sellers and buyers has a lot to with my being out there and meeting my neighbors, door by door, having an “A Team” that consists of a full-time executive assistant, an award-winning stager, photography team, and trusted contractors that work with me on all my listings and renovations. I am actively involved in several peninsula organizations, such as the San Mateo Chamber of Commerce, that allow me to stay connected and current on all the issues which impact local property values. I was recognized as one of the 100 Most Influential Agents in Northern California 2016 by Real Estate Executive Magazine. I keep up with the leading edge of changes and market trends so that I can always represent my clients best interest in all situations in every market. It is not just about selling your home; it is just as important to sell the lifestyle.
I am a member of the Rotary Club of San Mateo and have been since 2006. I served as the Rotary President for 2017-2018. I am aTop Agent Network Member (TAN) which is a private, membership-based, online communications platform that allows the top-producing real estate agents in local markets to share exclusive, non-MLS information. This privileged information can be crucial to your success as a buyer or seller of a home. Member agents post and share information about private listings, motivated buyers, local resources, even the latest industry trends. This ongoing exchange allows TAN agents to be “dialed in” to local real estate as few agents are. Only one real estate agent in ten qualifies for membership.
Giving back to the community is important to me and I do this through annual sponsorships and volunteering for various community events, e.g., the Central Park Music Series, Baywood Elementary School Auction Fundraiser, Police Activities League (PAL), Little League, American Legion Riders, City of Arts and the fall Arboretum Garden Tour at Central Park. My involvement with these organizations has helped grow my business and name recognition while doing what I love and value most, serving my clients and my community.
