Relocation and Home Marketing Specialist

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website! For the past twenty-five years I’ve been a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie in Orinda. As a California native and Lamorinda resident I love living in this area. I live a in a great location where my wife and I can spend the holidays in Lake Tahoe, admire the beautiful vineyards of Wine Country, and take a twenty minute drive up to San Francisco to enjoy all the wonderful aspects of the city.

As we start the 2014 holiday season fewer people will be thinking of real estate and that’s ok, because we use this time to focus on our families and recharge our batteries. We are already in deep preparation for 2015 with five beautiful homes coming to the market in the first quarter. We hope you enjoy the season with your family & friends. Of course, I am ready to assist you right now if time is of the essence.

Take some time to visit my website and click on the various links for more valuable information. One of the great services I provide for clients is Property First Alerts. This service is tailored to fit your specifications when looking for a new home. By signing up early you will receive e-mail notifications whenever a new listing hits the market.


Selling Philosophy

I believe that it is important to stay current and ahead of the crowd with the latest trends in social media, technology, and customer relations. By using electronic signature and paperless transactions, I am able to provide a faster and more convenient service to my clients and maintain a “green” eco-friendly office. My local knowledge of the neighboring areas, extensive experience, and perseverance can help you to achieve your real estate goals. In the end, though, buying real estate means getting into the car and looking at property.  Let's get to work!

Specific Services

I specialize in the San Francisco East Bay residential real estate sales. I am  knowledgeable about the local school districts, various neighborhoods, and price ranges. I also have extensive experience with relocation companies such as USAA, SIRVA, CARTUS, and Altair. As an active community member, I can help you find services ranging from property management to retirement communities. Please let me know if I can be of assistance in any of these areas.
