As a Marin County native with a background in finance, and nearly two decades in residential real estate, I offer comprehensive consultative and representational real estate services to buyers and sellers throughout Marin and Sonoma Counties. Specializing in Petaluma, I combine deep market knowledge and a reputation as a fierce negotiator with a low-key client-focused approach that favors listening over talking and facilitating over salesmanship.
Because real estate transactions are so emotional for clients, I emphasize optimal communication -- both between myself and my clients and between the clients themselves. Whether it’s helping couples get on the same page regarding their wishlist or coaching clients through a challenging escrow process, I find that providing a non-emotional sounding board allows clients to make better, more logical decisions and achieve their overarching goals for the transaction.
As a broker associate, real estate coach, and trainer, I provide industry-leading insight and a higher level of expertise to my clients. I am among the top 1% of local agents in total production. That level of experience allows me to see beyond the easy answers that most agents rely on to develop more meaningful, valuable solutions to my clients’ most vexing challenges.
As a member of the Marin County Bar Association, I often work with estate and family law attorneys to facilitate the sale of properties under complex legal and personal circumstances. At the same time, my background as a financial advisor makes me a powerful partner for investors and clients with an eye firmly fixed on the bottom line. With tens of thousands of dollars negotiated on each deal, I demonstrate the importance of effective client advocacy every day.
In my time away from the office, I continue to seek out challenges. An avid lifelong golfer and tennis player, I took up running at the age of 50 and recently completed my first marathon. My proudest accomplishment, however, is being the “father of four humans” who teach me something new almost every day.
