A San Marino native and longtime Pasadena resident, I received my degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California. A Realtor since 1983, I have worked in various aspects of the Real Estate industry. Prior to transitioning to Residential sales, I had an extensive Commercial Real Estate career spanning construction management, leasing and development. I worked for Legacy Partners, LLC and was responsible for development projects totaling over $850 million. Additionally, I established a filming/location division requiring extensive coordinating, management, supervision, and trouble shooting problems with municipalities.
In 2003, I joined my wife Vicky in Residential sales and together we formed The Botsford Group. With the addition of our son Kevin, The Botsford Group boasts sales volume of $40 million per annum and has received industry accolades for our excellent annual production. Vicky and I were Founding Partners of Partners Trust Real Estate's Pasadena office and instrumental in the launch of the La Canada Flintridge location. After 5 years of successfully growing the eastside offices, 2017 brought the merging of Partners Trust Real Estate with Pacific Union International, a northern California based firm; and was quickly lauded as one of the top Independent Real Estate companies in California. Fall (2018) saw yet another acquisition of Pacific Union by Compass Real Estate, a rapidly growing tech Real Estate giant where we now call home.
Outside of Real Estate, I am an avid golfer and have been involved with non-profit organizations such as The First Tee of Pasadena and the Board of the South Pasadena YMCA. Currently, I serve on the Board of Annandale Golf Club.
