My name is Cliff Keith, and I have been a licensed real estate Broker in the State of California since 1976. During my tenure as a Realtor, I have been a member in good standing in both the State and Federal Organizations for Realtors, (CAR & NAR).

Over the past 39 years I have also been an active member of the local Boards of Realtors. I have chaired several committees and been a member on several committees. I have been awarded awards along with certificates of appreciation and the prestigious "Golden Rule" Award, which is given by my peers.

My life as a Realtor started in Burlingame with C-21 Bennett Properties for a period of 8 years. I then associated myself with Fox and Carskadon Realtors who now are under the flag-ship of Coldwell Banker. Currently, I am a Broker Associate with Today Sotheby's International Realty.My working experience since 1976 includes listing and selling residential real estate, multiple units residential real estate, luxury homes, land, residential leases, commercial office and warehouse leasing, commercial property listing and sales; office buildings, warehouses, motels, REITs, and IRS Code 1031-Tax Deferred Exchanges.

Additionally, I have helped homeowners who owed more on their homes than they were worth by using the Short Sale process with their lending institution. Along with helping banks and asset managers who foreclosed on various homeowners are other duties I have performed.

Helping homeowners who were going through a divorce is a job that takes patient and a non-judgmental mindset, which I bring to the table in such cases. Sometime I am called on to help heirs of a deceased family members to help guide them through their family member's real estate assets, especially if they died intestate and are required by the courts to liquid real estate assets through the Probate court system.

I have sold homes as little as $44,750 (1976) to as high as $46 Million (2011). Since 1976 I have sold over 400 homes and had a gross sales amounting to over $30 0 Million.

My credo has always been to practice what I preach and I have acquired and maintained properties of my own. I own both residential and commercial properties. I like teaching my clients how they can do the same. I have been married to my wife Diane Flynn Keith since 1977 and we have two wonderful sons, Nick and Chad. My wife is a well-known author and public speaker on education. My sons are musicians.

I am a Veteran who served in the US Army and was a recon scout in the 9th Cavalry, which you may know better as the "Buffalo Soldiers". Prior to entering the armed forces I worked as a baker in my family's bakery. I am a third generation baker and the name sake for my grandfather who started Keith Bakery, later after WWII it was known as Banner Bakery in Bloomington/Normal, Illinois.

I have sat on various City of Redwood City commissions and committees. I have chaired and Vice Chaired on every commission and committee I sat on. There are community programs that are still in operation today, which were started during my time of serving my community.

I now find myself enjoying gardening during my spare time. I try to grow everything organically and plant seeds that I have saved from the previous year's growth. This is true for bot h my vegetables and flowers. I have had good success and love to watch my garden grow. It is the focal point for many people and children who pass my home. It a community outreach on my part as I share my knowledge, experiences, and bounty with my neighbors.

Some people ask me how I do so well with my plants and I reply. I go back to my days of baking and think of the soil much like bread dough. To make it into a loaf of bread you need certain ingredients in the right ratio and mixture. I do the same f or my soil to get the result I want. Only unknown is "Mother Nature", sometimes she may not go along with what you want! But on most occasions she loves to cooperate.
