Serving The San Diego Area Since 2006!
As the middle child, though, I had a strong independent streak. For a long time, I had done things on my own, and found unique ways to press onward. So in 2006, I set out to earn my real estate license in the United States.
The timing couldn’t have been worse, as the market plummeted in the following years. I was struggling with the business, but I didn’t want to let it go. “Stick to it”—that’s my motto. And I was determined. I was able to land a job as an underwriter with Wells Fargo while still maintaining my real estate career, but suddenly, the office I was working at was shut down. I was engaged to be married in less than a year, and I found myself without a sufficient confidence that I could support a family.
My dedication and drive don’t stop with my own problems. The market downturn was a tough time for so many people, and I bring that same commitment to every one of my real estate clients. I remember working with one gentleman who thought his life was over because he wouldn’t be able to keep his house. He had a wife and son, and a lot of his family’s wealth was tied up in the home. That was a pivotal moment for me: seeing how serious this business could be. But I also wanted him to know where his life’s value really was.
“This house could burn down tomorrow,” I told him. “And nothing would change. It’s just a structure. Your life would still be worth something. Your son needs a role model. Your wife needs a partner. Your life is far more important than this structure.”
That experience influenced my own life, as well, especially in regards to my wife and daughter. Our little girl totally changed our perspective. She’s inspired me to work harder so I can give her what my parents gave me—and more.
When it comes to real estate, I value being honest with my clients. I don’t consider myself a salesperson: instead, I strive to provide trust and to be with you every step of the way. I would love nothing more than to lend my knowledge and experience toward helping you with your real estate endeavors, but I don’t expect your business simply because of our relationship—I only ask that you take the time to interview me and see if I might be the best agent for you.
Buying or selling real estate is often an enormously important transaction, and the representation you receive from your agent can have significant impact on your results. I realize that you have many options when choosing a real estate agent, and I encourage you to speak to several different agents. If you decide to work with someone else, I won’t be offended: I want you to pick the agent that’s the right fit for your particular needs. If that person ends up being me, I promise to work diligently to exceed your expectations.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. When you or someone you know is in need of a real estate agent, I hope you give me the opportunity to demonstrate my services and interview for the job.
