"I was born in New York and though I've lived in many places and done many things in my life, I've always considered Nevada my home. I lived in Las Vegas as a youngster in the early sixties, when Las Vegas was just a spot in the road. I grew up at Lake Tahoe in Northern Nevada. I lived in Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, and throughout Northern California working closed circuit TV and photo finish for the horse races. I went to school at the University of Nevada Reno where I studied Business Administration, Marketing and Real Estate before moving to Alaska. I'm a former Federal police officer. I worked on the Alaska oil pipeline and also spent many years as a fine art dealer, specializing in modern masters, early Alaskan pioneer artists and historical artifacts. I first became a licensed realtor in 1992, working in the Lake Tahoe area for approximately 2 years. I lived in Santa Barbara, California for several years before moving to Newport Beach, where I was President of a systems integration company and General Manager of a closed circuit TV equipment manufacturing company which supplied cameras, lenses, recorders, monitors and night vision equipment to the security industry worldwide.
"I've been buying and selling real estate since I was in my mid-twenties. I've owned and managed numerous properties over these many years. I've been involved with the sale of land for a shopping center development, subdividing raw land into residential building lots, and 1031 exchange for family owned properties. I currently manage three family owned residential real estate investment companies and a property management company in addition to my work as a Realtor. Between my wife and I we currently have seventeen residential rentals in the Las Vegas/Henderson area and throughout Brazil which we utilize as both permanent rentals and vacation rentals. My short-term renters come back year after year and my long-term renters rarely move because I take care of everyone like I would want to be taken care of. I have a wealth of experience from both the buyer's and the seller's side of the sale transaction so, whether you want to buy or sell your investment property or dream home, I treat every transaction as if I were in your shoes. I have the knowledge and experience you need to look out for your best interest. Contact me today. I'll be looking forward to working with you."
