In 2016 when Compass launched in San Francisco and invited the top agents in town to sign-on I was thrilled to be included.
Over the years hundreds of real estate investors have relied on my analyses and advice to make sound investment choices. Deploying this accumulated expertise on your behalf is my privilege. I work at your pace—fast and furious or relaxed and reflective. I’ll propose the best strategy to get you what you want and you get to massage it in a way that works best for you. I can introduce you to other trusted professionals you may need to prep your home for sale (or renovate after you purchase)—contractors, architects, designers, and craftsmen. I treat clients like family and enjoy adding value.
Trained as a city planner, I worked for a dozen years in the historic preservation sector, helping neighborhood organizations pool their resources to improve their property values. I’ve served on a variety of public/private boards and committees: architectural review, facade design review, parking commissions, and permit appeals.
In addition to real estate I am passionate about philanthropy and have served on several non-profit boards over the past 15 years. As you embark on this journey to buy or sell a home, please remember those that haven’t a place to sleep tonight. Consider giving regularly to local charities that serve our local homeless; they are a critical part of the economic ecosystem that uplift the least fortunate among us. Miracle Messages is my current focus (miraclemessages.org).
Finally, I dabble in several life extension activities (exercise)—surfing, CrossFit, climbing, kick-boxing, hot yoga. But I frequently balance those with lower pain-producing actions like brunch or my almost-famous "educational tours” of wineries. I love taking clients up north for private tastings and celebrations. We have a blast (and you may learn something about wine too!)
I look forward to earning your trust and representing you in your next real estate transaction. Cheers, Rob
