Bio

I served in the Air Force for 23 years, retiring as a Captain and gave back to the community as a Realtor® by visiting several of the military installation overseas as well as stateside, giving Military Relocation briefing to the Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines who received PCS (Permanent Change of Station) orders to San Diego Military Bases.

Currently, I am actively licensed in San Diego (Broker), Honolulu (Realtor-Associate) and Las Vegas (Broker). I hold the National Association of Realtor® (NAR) Certifications in almost every aspect of real estate.

My certifications:

  • Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR)
  • At Home with Diversity (AHWD)
  • Broker Price Opinion Resources (BPOR)
  • Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB)
  • Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS)
  • Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Graduate
  • Realtor® Institute (GRI) Designation

Aside from my certifications, I have a Master of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice, a California Teacher’s Credential in Public Services and Administration as well as a Paralegal Certificate. I have spent two terms on the San Diego Association of Realtors “Board of Directors”, one term as an Executive Officer, one term as Vice President, and Information Technology Committee. Simply stated, I was once on 8 committees at the same time. When the market was slowing down, I did not abandon my clients, rather, I joined other Associations and served my clients as far out as Lodi, California, Temecula, Riverside, Lake Forest and Laguna Niguel…joining the appropriate associations.

As a California teacher & California Certified life coach, I taught low to moderate income buyers on how to purchase a home with no money down at the San Diego Community Housing Works in San Diego, CA. I also taught real estate investment opportunities and how to become an appraisal for the Learning Annex. While doing all the above, I was one of the three nominees for Broker of the Year in 2005 in San Diego, CA. Let me know how I can help; you will be pleased with my services.

My philosophy: “If you don’t own a home by now, it’s because you really don’t want one!”

My motto: “Educate first, sell or help buy… and create customers for life!”

My current Board Affiliations are San Diego Association of Realtors® (SDAR), Honolulu Board of Realtors® (HBR) and the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors (GLVAR).

Thank you,
