I received my sales license in 1977 at the age of 24 and became a broker in 1980 at the age of 27. I became a partner of  Sierra Scotty Realtors, which had operated in Jackson since 1958 under my father-in-law Scotty Guletz. I was the top producer for the company from 1980 until 1995, handling hundreds of transactions ranging from homes to large ranches.  In 1996 I merged with my current business, Coldwell Banker Award Realtors. We are and have been the number one company in Amador County for more than 10 years running. I am a Past President of the Amador County Association of Realtors and a Past Director of the California Association of Realtors. I hold the GRI designation.

I have two sons who both work with Coldwell Banker. My oldest, Neil, is with our company, making him a 3rd generation Realtor in Amador County.

I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina, where I obtained my bachelors degree in 1975. As a young man I was very active in sports and I continued that involvement as an adult, where I coached Little League baseball, youth soccer, youth basketball, junior high basketball and high school tennis. Currently I play tennis and golf to keep myself in shape.

My community involvement includes membership in the Jackson Lions Club and Jackson Elks. I have served our local school district as a member of the Curriculum Committee and the District Advisory Council, and I spent one term as a member of the City of Jackson Planning Commission.

My wife Gretchen is a School Nurse with the Amador County Unified School District.


Over 30 years experience selling real estate in Jackson and Amador County. Co-owner / Broker of the number one company for over 10 years running. Very active in community affairs. Proud family man.
