My family and I have made the Sonoma Coast our long-term home and we love it here. It's a much more relaxed style of living than in the bigger cities, but close enough to them that we have access to all of their amenities. And it's a perfect place to raise our son.After earning a BS from UC Irvine and an MBA from Pepperdine, I eventually migrated from Southern California to the Bay Area and have over 20 years of sales, marketing and business development experience. With my diverse background, it's natural for me to think outside of the box, incorporate creative perspectives into real estate transactions and put my negotiation advantages on your side.As a Sonoma Coast resident since 2002, as well as a former small business owner, I understand the challenges and benefits of the coastal area from a business perspective. This experience and knowledge has helped me become one of the top agents on the Sonoma Coast with over $60M in transactions and my clients have consistently rated my services with the highest marks since 2003.I'm also a member of the North Bay Association of Realtors and the Bay Area Real Estate Information Services Inc., a volunteer firefighter and am often found volunteering my spare time at events or fundraisers throughout the area.
