My name is Clark Rice. My first name is John, but my friends and family call me Clark. I hope you will too. I'm one of eleven real estate professionals at Red Door Real Estate. I am a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer (Air Traffic Control), long time Ventura County home owner, husband, father and grandpa. I am a graduate of the University of Laverne, Laverne, CA where I earned a BS in Business Administration. I am a member of the Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors (VCCAR). At the VCCAR I have served as a member of the Local Government Relations and the Equal Opportunity / Cultural Diversity Committees. My wife Elizabeth and I make our home in East Ventura. My entry into real estate was born of a desire to "understand" what was really happening behind the scenes when I was buying and selling my own home. I had been involved in a number of real estate transactions over the years and I never felt that I had a true picture of what was happening. I never felt that I knew what was going on let alone in control of any of it. I always felt I was getting the short end of the stick no matter what part I was playing in the transaction. As it turns out, I enjoy the business immensely. Mostly, I enjoy meeting and helping people in the complicated processes of buying and selling homes. Of particular interest to me is helping first time home buyers, veterans and service members realize the dream of home ownership. Consequently, my pledge to you is that I will do my best to make sure you don't feel like you are getting the short end of the stick when you do business with our company or me. I want you to feel like you are the one in control of your investment and that you are receiving the service you deserve. Call me - we can chat and maybe I can help you buy or sell your next property. I would love to tell you about our dynamic real estate company and let you in on some of the special ways we can help make your home dreams come true.
