I bring fourteen years of experience in real estate, excellent customer service and a commitment to work hard, listen and follow through. I provide quality service to build relationships with clients and more importantly, maintain those relationships by communicating effectively.
As a principal in a real estate investment and development group over the past 14 years, I've been responsible for overall leadership, growth, direction, cash management and strategic planning for a number of real estate projects, and I know how to maximize positive outcomes for all of the parties involved in the transaction. My projects have included minor-land subdivisions, urban infill projects, affordable housing, condo and townhouse projects, planned developments, tax credits, residential projects, and the only conservation bank in Santa Cruz County. I have worked with Federal, State, County, and City elected officials on land use planning, planned development, zoning, permitting, conservation law, community involvement, and environmental and ecological assessment.
I consult with real estate professionals, attorneys, architects, civil engineers, surveyors, financial institutions, investors and contractors to verify design studies, plans and cost estimates; this experience makes me effective in studying and evaluating real estate property, raw land and/or rehab for residential or commercial use. My experience developing available market studies with local, state, and federal planning organizations ensures finding the best use for a property. I collaborate with local green building manufacturers and contractors to implemented sustainable building practices in development projects. I work with residential property seller & buyers as well as builders & developers.

I co-founded a Silicon Valley engineering and technical career fair, publications, and internet company in 1982 and sold it to a national firm in 2000, since then I’ve been working in real estate. I have lived in the Scotts Valley area for 28 years and enjoy my family, hiking, biking, golf, kayaking and guitar.
