I'm a native of San Diego and have been representing and financing buyers and sellers since 2001. I began my real estate career working in the lending side of the business. My unique background in residential mortgage and lending has afforded me knowledge, experience and insight into real estate that most agents just don't have. Since then I have represented traditional buyers and sellers, speculators and builders, short sales and distressed homes, as well as REOs and banks. I have been a recipient of San Diego Magazine's FIVE STAR Real Estate Agent designation from 2007 - 2018. This elite group represents less than 3 percent of licensed agents in the San Diego area. I'm passionate for your satisfaction, and your best interests and real estate goals are paramount. I have built my business on the simple principle from a mentor of mine, "If you put the cares of your clients first, the money will take care of itself." While I work with both buyers and sellers, I've come to find a higher level of satisfaction when assisting a buyer, particularly a first time buyer. I remember the nervousness and excitement when buying my first home and so I pride myself on customer service and attention to detail. I believe an educated client is the best kind to work with and a better homeowner. I will work hard to educate you through the whole home buying process. I sincerely look forward to working with you personally every step of the way! Please give me a call so that we can start working on your next successful real estate experience today!
