About Me


Hmm, So Who Am I?

I grew up in Denver, proudly graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder and spent many hours visiting with my family at their home’s on Flying Fish and Flying Cloud Isle in FC so I got to know it pretty well. I met my lovely bride Lesley in 1989 and we moved to the Bay Area where I became a Realtor and worked for the Re/Max office that used to be at the location the IBM building now sits on…Hillsdale between Shell and Foster City Blvd. When our building was torn down I moved to Re/Max Today in San Carlos where I still am today. Except it’s now Today Sothebys…we changed shingles out front. Same people though. My office is the most productive office in San Mateo county and I’m proud to say that I’m associated with it! In 2016 I was 7th out of 67 agents there and have been in the top 1% of Real Estate agents in the US for years now. I know what I’m doing and my experience can be very helpful to you if you’re either buying or selling, so please don’t ever hesitate to contact me…even if you just want to pick my brain a bit! Lesley and I have been happily (really!) married for 26 years and have 2 beautiful daughters, Christina and Elena. We’ve been attending Central Peninsula Church over on Shell since 1991. My life’s sort of an open book so please let me know if you ever have any questions…or you would like to talk Colorado football! or the SF Giants, or the Denver Broncos!
