I can't imagine being in a more rewarding profession than Real Estate, because change is constant and every day is challenging and fulfilling.   I love land and houses and finding places for families to live.
 
I became licensed in Real Estate in 1986, and began selling homes in the San Jose area, just as it was developing into the Silicon Valley that we know today.  I became a Broker in 1992, which allowed me to become more diversified in real estate options. 

Interest rates began dropping to the single-digits in the 1990s, and I began originating loans, for both refinance and purchase transactions.   Financing is the cornerstone of real estate ownership, and having expertise in this area has allowed me to advise my clients more accurately.
 
The early 2000s offered new opportunities, and we became a part of Realty World Northern California, as a franchise owner.   It offers everything one would like as a Real Estate Brokerage office, including the latest in technology, education, tools, and support from a wonderful group of people.
 
In 2012, I began originating loans through my own brokerage company, Silverado Home Mortgage, which has been very rewarding.   To do this well, one must have control of the loan file at every stop, and we have accomplished this.  We now have a very efficient real estate sales and financing office, ready to deliver top-notch service to our clients, to help them accomplish their goals.
 
Most of my 27+ years of real estate profession has been in the San Francisco Bay Area. This place is truly special with its culture, weather, landscape and more. I really believe that the Bay Area is one of the best places to own real estate in the world.

      Sold a home in 2014.
      Harlan helped me buy my first house 5 years ago in 2009 and he really helped me learn what to expect since this was my first time buying. He really listened to what I was looking for in a new house and got me the house I wanted.

      He taught me so much about the buying process and what to expect. Which made it so much less stressful. He was always available when ever I had questions or for going to look at houses around my schedule.

      So when I decided to move gain I called on him to help me sell my house and purchase a new one in the Martinez area.

      He helped me out by looking at the house I was selling and making great suggestions for improvements to really sell my house.

      I felt really comfortable through the whole process of buying and selling with him as my agent. He was always on top of every step on both sides of the sale and purchase of my new home.

      He only wanted to best for me and consider him a friend as well.

      I would most defiantly recommend him to anyone that is buying or selling their home.

      Bought a home in 2014.
      Harlan was expert in solving the many problems we had in a very difficult transaction. With quiet professionalism he got all the details worked out in a helpful reassuring manner. in a few short weeks we found ourselves at the closing day. Thank you, Harlan

      Bought a home in 2014.
      Harlan was great to work with. He went above and beyond, making himself available whenever I needed him. I work a lot and do not have a lot of free time, and I was under a tight schedule to locate a home. He was able to present me with a lot of options, very quickly. He is extremely knowledgeable in the Vallejo area where I was looking, and I can tell he really loves it. He would even share stories about neighborhoods and houses, the history. We managed to see a lot of places together and Harlan quickly figured out my taste and was able to find options that fit what I wanted. It was never uncomfortable and I always felt that I could tell him exactly how I felt about a place we looked at, and I always felt that he did the same. He never made me feel like he was cheating me, or telling me what I wanted to hear just to close a sale, he tells it like it is, and I appreciate honesty. Since I am new to the whole process, he guided me through it, taking the time to explain the nuances of financing as well as the whole process and even helped me with a variety of ideas to help make sure we were able to get the house I wanted once we'd found it. I count him as a friend now, and would most definitely recommend him.  MoreLess
