I have been involved in Real Estate since 1998. This, in my belief, was a perfect time to become involved in Real Estate because it marks the beginning of the new technology in the industry. Many agents were unable or refused to make the transition of implementing the new tools of the trade. Agents had to learn the use of computers, e-mail, and computer based Multiple Listing Service, electronic lockbox keys and etc. Although I began practicing Real Estate in 1998, I have studied the field for over 25 years. Therefore, I am well versed in the subjects of Broker Price Opinions, Tax Free Exchanges, REO’s, Short Sales, Representing Buyers and Sellers, Property Management, and Investing. As a consultant, I am able to counsel my clients regarding Real Estate matters, rather than just acting as a broker who can only facilitate a transaction. Although, I always counsel clients to seek information from qualified professional in the field of expertise, many clients will benefit from the general information provided by a qualified Realtor with general knowledge of all field regarding Real Estate. I pride my self on becoming one of the first Real Estate Agents in the Los Angeles area to complete on-line Broker Price Opinions (BPO). Since 1998, I have completed over 9,000 BPO’s. Completing these BPO’s allows me to keep my finger on the pulse of the Real Estate market. They allow me to monitor the market and know in real-time the current prices, the direction of the market, and the direction of the current and future markets.
