From a young age I loved helping people. I get excited about the opportunity to make revolutionary changes for the greater good.
I recognized early in my life that nothing comes easy. There was never a silver spoon on my table. I was the first in my family to graduate college and then became a commissioned Intelligence Officer in the US Army.
As a way to show my appreciation and gratitude to those who have helped along the way, I sought every volunteer opportunity possible. In 2011, the Presidential Call to Service Award from President Barack Obama was awarded to me for my countless hours of volunteer service.
My time at UCLA concluded with a degree in International Relations and an internship where I was introduced into a new industry, real estate.
I left the military and began my career in real estate with an intention to put Service, Integrity and Success at the forefront and quickly transformed into the top 1% of real estate brokers in the world.
I am a frequent contributor to the real estate industry and have been quoted in Inman, Wall Street Journal, Realtor.com, Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, Real Estate Agent Magazine, Who’s Who in Real Estate, Tom Ferry International and more. Sounds great, right?
Well, I thought I understood success, happiness and fulfillment — but there was something stirring inside that I couldn’t ignore any longer.
