Communicating Value. Building Trust. Negotiating Success.

Just over 20 years ago, I got my California Real Estate license in Los Angeles. During my time in LA, I also worked in the TV & movie business – eventually starting up a movie marketing distribution firm. In our firm's first 5 years, we experienced explosive tenfold growth. We prospered because we knew our product and market better than anyone else. And, we worked harder.
After selling the marketing firm, I traveled extensively, pursued other interests – including development of residential investment property – then eventually returned to Marin to establish a full time real estate practice.
Here's how my Sales & Marketing and Design/Build experience benefits my Marin real estate clients today ...

Building Trust

I understand that home selling & buying represents a huge investment of time, energy and money. For most clients, maximizing value in real estate is a serious proposition – one that paves the way for the next important step in their lives.

In LA, our firm's movie studio clients took the release of each picture just as seriously. They trusted us to do nationwide marketing distribution for pictures they’d spent a lot of time and money getting ready for market. We made a total commitment to the success of each release. We never let them down.

The release of a motion picture is a bit like real estate, isn’t it? Uncertain Outcome, High Stakes, Marketing-Intensive … with success depending largely on a single emotional response: Will they love it?

When my team represents a Buyer or Seller, we make a total commitment to client success ...

Winning for Our Clients

For our sellers, that means we fine tune our market approach and communicate value in ways that inspire & motivate buyers.

What's the bottom line when marketing to buyers? You've gotta make 'em love it. We've got the skills to do it.

For our buyers, that means truly understanding their needs, finding a home they'll love – no matter how long it takes – and presenting the “Right Offer at the Right Time” to sellers. (Hint: It’s not just about the money.)

Our years of experience increase your odds of success.


In addition to real estate sales, this life/career experience enhances the value I offer my clients ...
