I have been a resident of North County for over 45 years and I have seen the growth of each town from Oceanside to Del Mar over the years. I have seen sleepy Encinitas go from a town with a two way road on Pacific Coast Highway to a bustling urban landscape and Oceanside turn their downtown area from one that you didn’t want to venture into, to a great location for food and entertainment. This knowledge of the area allows me to have a firm grasp of the unique traits of each neighborhood in North County. Before entering the Real Estate field in 2000 my background was in hospitality, where I managed multiple locations for the Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza chain and the previous Four Seasons Hotel in Carlsbad.
My training with the Four Seasons allowed me to bring a clear understanding of care and detail to each of my transactions. As an agent I have a genuine vested interest with each of my clients, whether they are buying their first one bedroom condo, selling their starter home to move into something bigger or buying a commercial property as an investment each client has a unique vision for what they are looking for in a property. It is my goal with every transaction to make that vision their personal success. I have had clients buy the first home that they have walked into and I have also worked with other clients for 3 years before they found their perfect home, but each transaction was equally as important to me. I look forward to guiding you to your own personal property success story.
