Clay is results-driven and customer-centric and is committed to making the home buying and selling process as smooth as possible. He leverages cutting edge technology and market data with instincts and experience to help his clients find their ideal home.
Clay doesn’t see Real Estate as transactional. He takes quality time to understand your needs for today and the future. Clay establishes confidence and comfort by communicating with integrity, honesty, empathy, and optimism.
Since 2005, Clay has been operating in the complex and ever-changing real estate markets of San Francisco and New York City. Whether investing in his own rental properties, helping buyers enter the real estate market, or selling a home, Clay will aggressively pursue the best price possible while managing to the lowest level of detail.
Clay understands a home’s worth goes beyond square footage and location. There is intrinsic value in aesthetics, functionality, inspiration, and desirability. When selling a home these variables can be highlighted, diminished, fixed, or enhanced. Clay can help buyers see potential missed by others.
Prior to Real Estate Clay was the Vice President of Customer Experience for a national retailer, designing the stores, directing the product presentation and in-store marketing. This provided a background of design and construction, and a strong understanding of marketing and customer behavior. Working with the world’s largest retailers, Clay became a skillful negotiator, always delivering for his customer on a budget.
Midwestern roots and life experience on the east coast gives Clay a great appreciation for San Francisco, which he has called home for 12 years. Living in Nob Hill, or the Cable Car Zone as he calls it, Clay is grateful to live where so many can only visit.
