Your San Diego Real Estate Guide

About Me

I pride myself on being anything but your typical real estate agent. With over 11 years of experience in the industry, I've carved out a niche as a trusted guide through the intricate San Diego real estate market, steering clear of the typical "salesperson" approach. I take each transaction to heart and have a personal, vested interest in understanding precisely what my clients desire when it comes to buying or selling a home.

Unique Marketing Expertise

My background in television production equips me with a distinctive skill set to showcase properties in ways that stand out. Through the use of stunning images, captivating aerial drone photos and videos, immersive 3D tours, and aggressive online marketing campaigns, I go above and beyond to capture the essence of each property. But I don't stop there; I also leverage my expertise to spotlight the vibrant community of San Diego, giving potential buyers a glimpse of the lifestyle that comes with their new home.

Family-Centric Professional

Beyond my real estate career, I'm a devoted husband and proud father of two. My family's values are at the core of everything I do, and I understand the importance of finding the perfect home that suits not just your needs, but your family's dreams as well.

San Diego Enthusiast

In 2018, my journey led me to start creating videos about the stunning city of San Diego. Since then, I've produced nearly 200 videos that have collectively garnered over 1,000,000 views on YouTube. These videos not only showcase our clients' beautiful homes but also the unparalleled beauty and charm of San Diego itself. I'm passionate about sharing the unique essence of this city with both newcomers and locals alike.
