Midwestern Values, Military Work Ethic. Originally from Iowa, I went to college at the US Naval Academy and after flight school moved out to San Diego in 1993. After 9 years as a helicopter pilot in the Navy I worked in tech sales for Acterna and General Electric before settling into my passion helping people find or sell their homes! We're thankful for all of our success, since 2009 we have been in the top 1% of Realtors for production and most importantly voted "5 Star" for customer satisfaction.My Client-First Philosophy There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.That said, in my experience as a San Diego real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the San Diego areas, please contact me.
