I have been involved in all facets of real estate for 40 years. My early years were spent working in the hospitality and international travel industry; real estate was a hobby - fixing and flipping homes in the San Francisco Bay Area from Mendocino County to Santa Clara County and down the Valley to Modesto and in Hawaii. As my business grew I needed to buy space for inventory, instruments, and office space.
From hospitality and international travel,after completing my MBA course work, I entered the medical device industry. I learned that precise understanding of what one is representing is critical to success and to satisfied clients and avoidance of legal issues. This precise nature has served me well in the real estate field. I believe that we need more required education and testing for real estate agents. The level of professionalism in real estate needs to be raised.
