INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE: My working knowledge as a licensed Real Estate Broker & Realtor is complimented with 5 years of corporate accounting & 15 years of income tax preparation experience. My appraisal experience includes valuing million dollar homes as well as multi-unit residential investment properties.

EDUCATION: Graduating from San Diego State University with a Bachelor's degree in BUSINESS FINANCE gave me the tools to help Buyers understand home loan financing.

MARKET VALUE - Determining the home's market value is the first crucial step for both Buyers and Sellers. If a Seller underprices the home, thousands of dollars will be lost; conversely, if the home is overpriced the sale may take much longer than anticipated or worse, it might not sell at all. With over 2,500 hours of real estate appraisal experience I'll ensure you know the home's market value.

INCOME TAX IMPACTS (GAIN ON SALE & DEDUCTIONS) - Considering whether you'll owe capital gains on your home sale will avoid costly surprises later. Deductions of home ownership save you money by reducing income taxes you would have owed. As a CPA I'll consult you about both of these issues.


"...it sounds like my friend Sam Strain & family are close to getting a home, too... I referred them to you because you are honest, true to your word, and the kind of guy that a home buyer needs in their corner..."

Craig Krok, Lake Forest

"... Thanks for all the time and effort you put into our first home purchase. You may not have known this but we did talk to several agents and brokers including the discount/rebate brokers you see on the Internet and which list in Costco; you were by far the most knowledgeable and personable broker we encountered. I'm really amazed that you were able to find a loan for our financial/credit situation that was a full 1.5% lower than the best Countrywide or Wells Fargo could do. After all the escrow horror stories I heard from my friends the only surprise I had working with you was there were no surprises."

Sam Strain, Mission Viejo

"I just wanted to thank you for the professional brokerage services provided with selling my condominium in Rancho Santa Margarita. Your advice helped me sell my home faster than I had estimated was possible given current market conditions and at a price that ‘s now considered “high” just a couple months after closing escrow."


Bill Pasley, Rancho Santa Margarita


"Mike, my wife Bridget and I can’t thank you enough for helping us sell our home in Mission Viejo just in time. We were worried that it would take longer, but due to your input we were able to secure a fair price that helped us sell very timely."


Sergio Rodriguez, Huntington Beach
