Tell us what got you into this crazy business? A personal buying experience that left me feeling that I probably had more rights than my Realtor at that time told me. It was a true learning experience going through the schooling and learning all that I did not know…and I was kinda right! Since then, I have enjoyed practicing real estate and being of value to my clients. I am certain to explain every part of their transactions, am totally transparent as well as easy to reach. Having been in the industry during varying markets and for a long duration of time, I can tell you that I truly enjoy every transaction as they are all different…ending in a happy Close of escrow!
What areas do you specialize in? I specialize in the Arcadia, Paradise Valley and Scottsdale area. I have lived in the area for over a decade and know it well. Each of them have different market trends and knowing the area and the growth patterns allows me to deliver value to my clients.
Tell us about your family. I’m so flipping lucky to have two amazing kids. With these teenagers (boy and girl), life is a fun adventure. We are really close, and I would like to think that they share everything with me (wishful thinking, I know). Doing day trips and taking extended vacations together keep our bond strong (and makes me feel younger).
What is your favorite documentary or movie? I’m an old school guy. The preference would have to lie with The Godfather (Part I and II).
What topic would you speak about if you were asked to give a talk on something outside of real estate? Being kind to yourself! That would be an awesome class for any and all. We have all had some sort of tribulations that have forced us to say WHY? I would like to change that to WHAT? What have you done for yourself? I would discuss everything from sleep patterns to exercise to diet (or lack thereof) and just flat out how to be better to ourselves.
