It's great to be part of a real estate industry that is constantly changing and presenting interesting challenges. As a licensed real estate broker since 1976, I have seen many different economic cycles that have affected the San Diego market place. During this period I have been involved in general partnerships owning residential income properties, remodeling for resale, building and selling luxury residential homes, ranches and land. Along with the challenges of real estate I finished a career in commercial aviation retiring from Alaska Airlines as a line Captain along with a 22 year Naval Reserve career flying attack and adversary jet aircraft.
