Founder

“Hold fast to dreams. For if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” – Langston Hughes

What Brought Me to Real Estate

After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and a CPA credential, I held various positions in consulting and financial analysis in Silicon Valley. Making the leap to San Francisco, I worked in project management and service integration for a leading financial services firm. While earning an MBA at UC Berkeley, I purchased a ramshackle “fixer upper” and transformed it into a stunning Pacific Heights Victorian. Realizing then that real estate was my calling because it utilized all my talents in analysis, project management, collaboration and problem-solving, I began my career in residential real estate and have never looked back!

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

Talking real estate is always fun when I’m in the mix. I strive to give the insider
perception and take pride in always being transparent. Every engagement is not just
about making another deal but finding what is best for each client. I advocate for my
clients and keep them well informed throughout every step of the home buying or selling
process. I am here to build a community and long lasting relationships. Let’s get a
beverage and chat!

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” – Kurt Cobain

My career began in the fitness industry after attending college at Cal Poly and I was lucky enough to build a thriving and loyal clientele here in San Francisco for over 20 years. When the opportunity presented itself for me to pursue my dream job in real estate I enthusiastically took it. I am so happy to be in this space, on this great team and I can’t wait to meet you. My clients would tell you I am professional, reliable, knowledgeable and fun. I am detail oriented and goal focused. While buying and selling a home in San Francisco is serious business, I promise you we will have a blast doing it.

I live in the Marina with my wife, my daughter and two small dogs. We love exploring the globe but never get tired of this great city and all it has to offer. I am a lover of wine, golf and the SF Giants.

“The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” – Vince Lombardi

I love to work with first-time and returning buyers, sellers and investors. My goal is for my clients to feel exceptionally well cared for every step of the process (and after!). The best part of my job is getting to know my clients, discovering what is most important to them and helping them to achieve it. My clients know that I work tirelessly for them and have a can-do attitude, always. 

Born and raised in San Francisco, real estate has been a lifelong interest and there is no work I would rather do! Proud of my local roots, I attended St. Cecilia School, St. Ignatius College Preparatory and the University of San Francisco.

“There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that, once unleashed, can make any vision, dream, or desire a reality.” – Anthony Robbins

With over 20 years of experience of being in the business of helping people matched with my passion for architecture and design, I have organically created a natural platform for my real estate career. I like to think of myself as a creative at heart with a business mindset. Important considerations that I make in representing and negotiating for my clients are results and building relationships. I have dedicated myself to working diligently to ensure that my client’s goals are met and to guarantee that throughout the process they are heard and accommodated in every possible way.

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something and it seemed obvious to them after a while.” – Steve Jobs

I thrive in the excitement of creating something new. This often manifests in developing novel solutions to clients’ problems. To me, the process of problem solving is as rewarding as the end result. I am always eager to work late into the night chasing a new idea. I am passionate about absorbing as much of the information around me as possible. Every day represents an incredible opportunity to learn, develop and try something new.

“Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.” – Aeschylus

Having the opportunity to help clients is a privilege. As a homeowner myself, I know how big a decision it is to buy or sell a home. I feel fortunate to be part of a team like the Haven Group that cares deeply about each client and provides them with the needed support and expertise. For me, happiness comes from doing your best while treating people with respect. When I am not in the office, you can probably find me outdoors enjoying a walk around our beautiful city of San Francisco.
