During my 40 years in the real estate business, I have had the pleasure of serving extraordinary sellers and buyers who deserve nothing less than my very best. There is no greater honor than to receive referrals from my previous clients, affirming that I have served them well. My commitment to excellence is what continually ranks my performance in the top 1% of real estate agents. I sell millions every year.

I am a Land Park resident in Sacramento and represent buyers and sellers throughout the Sacramento Valley. I am honored that media recognizes me as the #1 local expert for Sacramento short sales, and you can find my book, The Short Sale Savior, at Barnes and Noble. I am a Certified HAFA Specialist and Equator Certified Platinum for short sales. As the top Sacramento short sale agent, I also list, negotiate and sell short sales in Sacramento County, El Dorado County, Placer County and Yolo County.
