Vintage service, the way it used to be: As a young boy I recall driving with my grandmother and stopping at a full service gas station. The station attendant greeted her with a broad smile adorned in a white uniform and cap. He filled her giant yellow 1972 Cadillac with gasoline and washed each window with several squeaks of his squeegee. He added air to the tires, and checked the fluids under the hood. He lowered and clicked the hood closed with a final rub of his blue towel and a nod to my grandmother through the front windshield. A tip was followed by a "Thank you, Ma'am" and a warm genuine smile. My grandmother drove away with me tucked deep into her caramel leather seats and the seat belt wrapped tightly across my small frame. Service above and beyond made my grandmother feel special. Vintage service is a thing of the past for the most part. It is something we value but often don't have time for. I make the time. I will find the time. I value this level of service and want my clients feeling the way I did on that sunny California day in my grandmother's bright yellow Cadillac.
I was licensed by the California Department of Real Estate in 2000 while I was growing a Bay Area career in residential property management. My life was changed significantly in 2014 when I became a proud adoptive father of four sons. I realized quickly the commute to San Francisco from Penngrove consumed my days, I wanted more time with my family. I decided to embark in a new direction with my real estate license and began selling residential real estate locally in Sonoma County. This changed my life forever and gave me the gift of so many additional memories with my family. I have never looked back.
Since 2014, I have grown my local real estate business to become a top producing agent in Sonoma County. Representing sellers and buyers mostly through referrals, one client at a time. And from the very beginning, I have stuck with my motto: "Vintage service. The way it used to be." I hope we have the opportunity to meet, and that I have the opportunity to guide you through your new adventure.
