After thirty-two years I have learned the purpose of a Real Estate Broker for both sellers and buyers is to educate, negotiate and facilitate. I educate the prospective buyer or seller of the market inventory, conditions, property attributes, and problems. After the buyer has identified their property, I develop a contract that accomplishes the buyer's goals, negotiate on their behalf, assure them of a thorough evaluation, and gaining the most favorable financing. My knowledge of the market, properties, contracts, and financing are basic to accomplishing these goals for the buyer or seller.
Becoming a Real Estate Broker in 1981 was a natural next step for me. My educational background of accounting, economics, and Graduate School at U.C Berkeley in City Planning gave me the underlying knowledge. My hobbies of gardening, weather, backpacking, winemaking, and renovation of old buildings continually add to my knowledge of the many facets of Real Estate. I love the intricacies of each property and feel equally comfortable exploring coastal ranches, a village Victorian, looking down a well, or examining the balance sheet of a business. Real Estate has been my only occupation for nearly a third of a century. My experience as a volunteer firefighter for 37 years, now the department president, and having served on the Historic Review Board for six years, Mendocino Community Services District Board for six years, founding member of the Mendocino Land Trust, co-founder of Friendship Park, indicates my commitment of long term service to my community and neighbors.
As a Mendocino Village resident since 1974, I gained a depth of knowledge and love for the area that I share with enthusiasm. I don't think I could ever move back to the United States.
One of my particular passions is the Bed & Breakfast industry. This one business lies at the center of all my interests and education. That passion is responsible for my listing and selling 90 percent of all the inns sold on the Coast since my entry into the field in 1982. As a member of the Professional Association of Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers, I keep professional ties with the latest industry trends.
I look forward to helping you accomplish your dreams as a buyer or seller.
