Like everything in life we are an example of the people we choose to surround ourselves with. Being acknowledged by Real Trends America’s Best for a second consecutive year is a testament to more than two decades of dedication, perseverance and grit. Securing a position among the top 250 realtors nationwide for sales volume, amidst a staggering pool of nearly 1.7 million licensed real estate professionals, is a recognition that cannot be attributed to me solely. I want to extend my heartfelt recognition to the people that helped me to achieve this honor because they play a pivotal role in my accomplishments and who I am today. I am grateful for the unwavering support of my team who consistently inspire me to better myself both personally and professionally.


My family takes precedence, with my wife Ema who is my esteemed business manager, providing the balance I need and being the driving force behind my aspirations, my sons Bodhi and Kai, who continually humble me and infuse my business with their exceptional skills and marketing acumen. I am beyond fortunate to be surrounded by the remarkable individuals at Sotheby’s International Realty whose meticulous attention to detail and support make every transaction and relationship significant and meaningful. Special recognition goes to my Manager Cristian David, who has inspired me to reach higher for my goals, and my marketing manager Trip Young whose contributions for marketing professionalism have been invaluable. Thanks for the great advice and energy! Thanks also to the office staff who helps me daily. I would also like to express my appreciation to the esteemed corporate leadership team at Sotheby’s International Realty namely, Brad Nelson, Cliff Siegel, Phillip White and Michael Williamson. Their guidance has been instrumental in my success.


Furthermore, I am indebted to Nancy Hannah, my contract coordinator, and Kit Landry from Sotheby’s Corporate marketing for their continual support and knowledge. Thanks also to the office staff who helps me daily. My photographer Marcello Lagos, and my home stager Kimberly Bailing from UPStage LA, deserve special mention for their exceptional work in presenting my clients’ houses in such an enticing way. Every person is a piece of the history behind every part of my success. From my family and my team at Sotheby’s International Realty in Malibu and the Globally Renowned Team at SIR, to my incredible clients, I have been blessed with collaborative, intelligent, supportive and exceptional individuals. I did not achieve this alone. Thank you all and onward to another great year in real estate success together!
