I am married to wonderful woman (31 years) who is the mother of our six children: 5 boys, 1 girl. We have been blessed with 5 beautiful grandchildren and still have 3 boys living at home with us. Speaking of home, we have lived in the same home in a great northwest neighborhood for 21 years. I am a native Californian, born and raised in Marin County.
I dropped out of college and am still wondering what I want to be when I grow up. Prior to marriage I was doing mission work in Mexico ( I do speak some Spanish amigo) and was a puppeteer. Marriage and the subsequent offspring forced me to get a real job :(
I have been a California licensed Contractor (in good standing with zero complaints and zero law suits) since 1988. My license classifications are B, C2, & D65 — which means I am a General Contractor with specialty licenses in Insulation & Acoustical, and Weatherization and Energy Conservation. My license # is 555829.
I enjoy trading stocks and consider myself a micro-cap miner, i.e. I specialize in finding small companies with huge growth potential. Little secret: I have made far more money trading stocks than I have selling real estate.
In 2007 I took up photography and many of the pictures on my site were taken by me. I currently shoot with a Nikon DX200 & DX300 using an assortment of lenses. Not to brag, but the real estate pictures I take when I list a property are top quality. On occasions I do photo shoots for other agents. You can view a sample of a home I shot here.
In 2002 I got back in touch with my inner Puppeteer and built an entire Punch and Judy Theatre. I built the puppets, the props, the stage - everything- I even sewed all the little outfits myself. It took me 6 months. In 2006 I got frozen shoulder and have been unable to perform until recently (regained 90% range of motion in 2009).
This is my 8th year in Real Estate and in May 2006 I opened my own brokerage: Lazarus Realty. My license No. 01357881.
I enjoy being self-employed and independent. I don’t like it that public opinion of Realtors is low. I’m highly critical of our industry, since its one of the few industries where one can take some online courses for 2 or 3 months, pass a test, and then call themselves professionals.
I hope that you will find some useful information on my blog. Whether your a friend, former client, prospective client, or a real estate agent feel free to comment or contact me anytime.
Just a note to thank you for all of your help and expertise in previously selling my 7 -Units on Fairmont Avenue in Fresno, and your recent help in finding the right home for me in the Fresno area at the lovely "Stonebridge".
After meeting with you, I felt very comfortable and recognized your ability to represent me as a seller, and now as a buyer.
Presently living in a 45-Unit Condominium Comples in the Bay Are for 27 years and being on the Board of Directors, many as Treasurer, I have dealtwith many different Realtos and Title Companies due to sales and purchases in this building. I have also owned apartment houses over the years. I recogniz your ability to dot all of the i's and cross all fothe t's, which is very commendable.
Thanks you again. Should I need future help, you will be the person I will call and you are the one I will highly recommend.
To: Lazarus McAtee
We just wanted to express our appreciation to you for the outstanding job that your company did for us regarding the sale of our home. We appreciated the knowledgeable advice received in preparing and pricing our house for sale. Also, the frequent and timely communication with us throughout the whole process from listing to closing was excellent. In today's very difficult housing market, we were so very glad to have listed our home with Lazarus Realty. There are many details involved in getting a house from listed to sold, so please accept our thanks in getting our house sold in less than two weeks!
Obviously, we would not hesitate to recommend Lazarus Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Again, thank you!
Eric & Yoly Miller
Lazarus I want to thank you on behalf of my family. You have helped us in many ways. You helped us to find our home. When times were hard for my family I did not know who to call. But for some reason your name came to mind. I made a call to you. We were in alot of financial trouble and we were close to losing our home.
You helped us find a way to get through a tough time. You loaned us the money we needed to catch up on our mortgage and that gave us time to find a way to keep our home. Not too many people would loan money out of their own pocket. We did not know when we could pay you back, and I think you might have known there was some risk. But you gave from your heart. And I am very happy that we were able to pay you back.
We are still in the same home and with your help and some answered prayers we are making it. I dont just see you as a financial adviser, I also see you as a friend and an answer to our prayers. When we did not have a place to turn to, we were led to you.
I just want you to know, If you ever need anything please call me and I will do my best to help.
