With a long background in the restaurant hotel business, construction and finance, I have enjoyed providing a full array of real estate related services for more than 20 years. You could say my appreciation for real estate began at a young age as one of eight children raised in the land of milk and honey. When I wasn't busy cultivating corn, I was reluctantly helping my Father expand the old tool shed into what became our five bedroom, three bathroom family home. The other project that kept me from getting into trouble was helping him transform a turn of the century round barn into one of southern Wisconsin's premiere restaurants called Rocks Round Barn. I moved to California in 1980 and began my real estate career in the San Francisco Bay Area nine years later. In 2004, I joined Prudential California Realty as a manager and led my office of 55 agents for two-and-a-half years before deciding to return to sales. I chose to join Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in 2011 to help build my personal brand with the support and security that clients appreciate in today's market.
