I've had my license since 2002 and have worked full time in the business since that time. I spent the first six months with Coldwell Banker in Roseville, the next 5 years with Keller Williams, took advantage of an opportunity to work with Pulte homes in a Del Webb community in Elk Grove for one year and now I'm working with the RE\MAX Gold, Fair Oaks, specializing in residential and residential investment properties.
I prefer residential and residential investment properties/homes.
I also work with the Real Estate Tomato selling blogsites to Realtors and coaching them through how to blog effectively. Blogging is THE necessary marketing tool going forward and those who have taken advantage of blogging find that a very high percentage of their business comes from their efforts.
I own one real estate blog, sacramentorealestateviews.com. Please stop by and let me know what you think. Both are in development but there are articles posted there. I like video blogging at the moment.
Thanks for reading!
I'm a native Californian, born in San Francisco and although I've moved around a little with the military, I've lived all over the state, predominatly in Northern California.
After high school, I served in the US Army for just under 8 years, the last 5 as a UH-60 Utility Helicopter Pilot. I was stationed in California, Alabama, South Korea and then back in California where I honorably resigned my commission.
After that, I made my home in Monterey, California and got into the golf business. My first job there was at Corral de Tierra Country Club then to Pacific Grove Golf Links then to Sunken Gardens Golf Course and Driving Range in Sunnyvale where I met my wife Andi. We then moved to Dallas, Texas where she had a commitment for a couple of years before moving out to San Anselmo, Marin County where I was the General Manager of San Geronimo Golf Course. That was my last job in the golf business.
Andi's parents were retiring and moving away from the bay area so we began looking for new digs in the Sacramento area. We settled in Rocklin where we still live. I became a Realtor with Coldwell Banker in Roseville, then moved onto Keller Williams Realty for about 5 years specializing in resale residential and residential investment properties. In August of 2007, I was offered a position with Pulte Homes in the sales division and worked at a Del Webb community in Elk Grove. I am now with REO Deal Makers at ReMax Gold as well as with the Tomato.
Andi and I have a 3.5 year old boy named Ryan. What a barrel of laughs this guy is! We are trying for another but that's been a bit fickle shall we say. Aside from that, we are happy, healthy and achieving! That's me.
I also work with the Real Estate Tomato in helping to create custom blogsites for Realtors and training them how to use this highly effective marketing tool to increase their internet presence.
