About Damian
Damian is now one of the top real estate agents in the Napa Valley. His success stems from the gravitas of his business background and his ability to translate that experience into a seamless, professional, transaction for his clients. Whether listing and selling or assisting with a purchase, clients experience his ability to translate their requirements into tangible results. “Understanding what it means to be transparent and act as a fiduciary are the cornerstones of the real estate experience I strive to provide to my clients.” Over 30 years as a CEO, entrepreneur, and investment banker in the business sector coupled with spending the past 7 years in real estate, Damian represents a wealth of seasoned guidance. “I have been honored to represent 3 vineyard/winery properties over the past year, which is quite fulfilling as it allows me the ability to combine my real estate sales acumen with my business background. Engaging Buyers for these properties requires grasping the nuances of purchasing a business/farm and is very similar to the work I did as a venture capital fund manager. When my wife, (the CFO of a major winery) and I moved to Napa 8 years ago, I acquired a real estate license for our own investments, then slowly, by word of mouth, my second career blossomed, and I really enjoy it. It is a very pleasant experience to help people achieve their real estate goals!!

2014 – Present
Realtor for Napa, Sonoma and Solano County.

2002 – 2013
Venture Capital Fund Manager and Investment Banker: “I truly understand the fiduciary relationship that a real estate agency agreement represents. Transparency, disclosure, accurate marketing, and proper due diligence are the hallmarks of agency relationships.”

1989 – 2002
Vice President of Sales and Marketing in a Fortune 100 company, CEO of several high tech companies, and over ten Board of Director roles including Chairman

“These roles helped me achieve a high degree of professionalism, learn how to communicate well with potential purchasers, and understand marketing and sales to your target audience. I have always loved real estate and despite not working at it professionally during this period, I acquired my 1st California Real Estate license in 1982. From 1982 onward I have been involved in the purchasing and selling of my own investments as well as negotiating complex commercial leasing transactions for the companies I owned and/or ran.”

​★★★★★
Moving from SF I did not have a local Napa agent, so I called Damian directly about a listing he had that I wanted to see. I feel I was so lucky to have made this decision because I do not believe I could have been represented in a more professional, transparent manner. Damian's advice was very clear and concise, he was extremely knowledgeable, and timely in his responses. I am a first time home buyer and believe by the time my new home closed, that Damian had done everything possible to make me feel comfortable and confident in the choice I made. I love living in Napa and love my new home! I highly recommend Damian and just referred him to some friends who are moving to Napa! - Ken S.

​ ★★★★★
Our move from Silicon Valley to Napa could not have been more seamless, efficient, or transparent. Damian was very knowledgeable about the Napa real estate market and he communicated that expertise very clearly to us. We wanted to structure our Offer in a particular manner but Damian gave us many viable options and convinced us to take a much better approach. We would have not had our Offer accepted for the home of our dreams if we had stuck to our original Offer plan. To put it simply, we listened to Damian and by following his guidance, we got exactly what we wanted. We have referred friends to Damian and they have been very grateful. In our opinion he is the best agent we have ever met! - Ninad & Suzanne D./ MD

​ ★★★★★
At the end of 22 years in the same home and in the same town (Petaluma), I decided I needed to change! Damian was so caring, patient, and professional, he made this difficult transition a wonderful experience. His guidance, as I shed years of clutter to make my home meet his vision, led to 7 offers and the highest price ever paid for that model of home on the east side of Petaluma. As this process was going on, he found me the perfect house in Napa and worked with the bank to stop it from going into foreclosure, so I could purchase it at a below-market price, and the former owner could avoid bankruptcy. He is truly my miracle agent, and I could not recommend anyone with more enthusiasm! - Kitty G./ Small Business Owner

​ ★★★★★
Nobody will work harder to find you the perfect house and save you money! Damian toured me over every inch of Napa, Green Valley, and even lower Vacaville until we found it. The price of a new home we had toured and I loved, (but was too expensive), suddenly was lowered significantly by the Developer, when he pointed this out to me I told Damian I would meet him after work and sign the Offer. He was so worried we would lose this deal that he sent me the offer at my office and insisted he drive to my office in St. Helena immediately and pick up the deposit check from me. He then drove to Green Valley so we could secure the deal. The next day I drove over to the Developer’s sales office and the agent told me I was very lucky because a second Offer on the home had been delivered 1 hour after ours! Damian really understands the market and will deploy his “hard-work ethic” from his days as an investment banker to his service for you. He is smart, sophisticated, and driven. I am very confident in saying that Damian will find you the house you want and secure it for you at the best price possible. - Kent M./ VP of Operations

​ ★★★★★
Damian is an old friend and when I needed guidance to sell my winery, I called him. He could not represent me since my winery was in another state, but he acted as my consultant throughout the entire process. The very successful multi-million dollar private sale was completed in January 2019. Damian was there for me every day throughout the process and was instrumental in helping me manage the process. His patience and perseverance and listening skills are truly remarkable. His ability to understand the financial, business, and real estate aspects of selling a winery would set him apart from most agents, even in Napa. I highly recommend him!” - Bill L./ Winery Owner

​ ★★★★★
Nobody hustles more, is more accommodating, more communicative, or transparent than Damian. I demand quite a bit of the real estate professionals I work with and Damian is up to the task. He has recently been helping me locate homes to purchase for my own portfolio and is now part of my team. I could not recommend him more highly. - James N./ Developer

​ ★★★★★
I referred Damian to a dear older friend. I have bought and sold many properties over the years but have never experienced the level of service Damian performed. He is absolutely the best agent I have ever worked with! - Tony K./ Retired CFO
