I take a different approach to real estate through strong relationship building, effective listening, and memorable, personalized service. My core emphasis is effectively communicating the steps of the transaction process – before, during and after each step. First-time buyers find this especially useful!

Before pursuing a longtime personal interest in real estate I enjoyed an exciting marketing communication career and left an indelible mark on several pioneering Fortune 100 firms, including MCI, AOL, Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot, the American Cancer Society and Sony. Each offered its own unique experience and my successful contributions in communication, sales and marketing prepared me well for my current career.

One of the most valuable lessons I learned along the way was the importance of building strong relationships, the power of effective listening, and memorable, personalized service.

I believe it’s a hallmark of my approach—one that I take great pride in.

Whatever your reason for engaging in real estate activity – the search for your next special home, or if you’re just looking for a change, I feel that we are in it together as partners. San Diego and its many neighborhoods offer a wealth of opportunity to find your next haven or refuge — but you need to know where to look.

And rest assured, I’m not satisfied until you are. That’s my firm commitment to you.

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope we get the opportunity to learn more about each other soon.
