After working for several years as a professional opera singer, I left music and took 6 months off of work to figure out what I wanted to do next. My wife and I had recently finished buying and remodeling a home in Eagle Rock that was so nice that it ended up being featured on HGTV. I liked the notion of fixing homes for money, so in 2001 I began investing in real estate full time.

It became clear that in order to really succeed as an investor, I needed a better understanding of capital. Becoming familiar with money, how to access it, control it, and leverage it was crucial, so I got a job as a mortgage banker to supplement what I was doing. I quickly became a top producer in the office and moved from agent, to manager, to the owner of a large mortgage bank within a few years.

Throughout the process I earned most of my clients because of my investor mentality. An investor understands the fundamental metrics that underlie a smart purchase. He has a thorough and up to date intimacy with his target neighborhoods, and the trends taking place there. Because of this I was able to build a large portfolio of real estate, and help many, many others to do this same. And because of this it has been a very natural transition for me to switch from lender to realtor.

After the turbulence in the capital markets in recent years, I have found something that is more rewarding than lending, and still allows me to work in the field that I have come to love. Although 2011 was my first year as an agent, I have personally and professionally been involved in literally thousands of closed escrows in the last 10 years.

In addition to real estate, I practice Brazilian Jiujitsu, ride road bikes, read vast amounts on random subjects, study beer brewing, and pairing, and I am impassioned with cooking. I'm also a husband and a dad to two young boys.

Looking forward to working together.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, CA.
      Steve was phenomenal in getting our house in Highland Park closed. I talked to him prior to considering selling the house, and he gave me options to maximize the sale price. He hit it right on the money. I live in orange county and the house was in LA, he took care of everything from communicating with our property management/tenants, all of the inspectors, and escrow. This was the easiest real estate sale I've ever gone through. All paperwork was digital so it did not take time away from work or other things, which was a blessing as my job duties became overwhelming. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone buying or selling, he's honest and really knows the real estate market. Thanks Again Steve.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2013.
      My mom wanted to sell her condo in Pasadena, and we were first dubious of Steve's proposal. But like he promised, Steve was knowledgeable and delivered results. He was professional and I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

      Steve not only helped with a real estate transaction during difficult times, he did it in a professional and caring way and made sure everything was done properly. He made sure all details were handled properly to make sure everything went smoothly. He provided several options to choose from which was empowering.  MoreLess
