My History

When I started in commercial real estate as an assistant at a big firm back in 2003, I had no idea what I wanted from this business.  

Now it’s almost twenty years later and  my business has changed in so many ways.  I now understand development in ways that other brokers can’t comprehend.  My years of learning from my mentor, about development (while scouting deals for him) paid off.

I have listed and sold all types of properties, but my focus is development sites. I have sourced, negotiated and closed future development sites for ground up development.  If you’re a client, or know me and you know my history, for those that don’t I am not going to rehash it, if your interested, call me.  What I should tell you, if you haven’t already guessed, is that I am not from Los Angeles, I am New York born and bred, living out here.  What does that mean? It means I am not going to mince words, I tell clients like it is – if you appreciate that, you and I will get along, if you want someone to tell you how pretty your shoes are, find another agent. 

I am probably one of the most risk-adverse entrepreneurs you will ever meet.  I realize that’s an oxy-moronic statement, how can a risk taker be risk adverse?  The answer is “by doing things right.”  I try to take the utmost care in doing things “by the book,” with zero risk to compliance, regulation or illegality.

Other than being risk adverse, I pride myself in being straight-forward in my advisory.  I don’t tell clients to sell or buy, I don’t convince them to take less or pay more, I help them make the big decisions by providing access to my experience and best judgment.   I don’t leave them until their undertaking is complete.  The business I am in is buying and selling dirt for others.  If you’re looking for help, start here; pick up the phone and call me.
