This post was inspired by one of our Active Rain Friends Brian England from Gilbert Arizona. He asked us to get personal and share a little more about our lives and background. My intent is not to bore you to death. This post should give a glimpse to my life before Real Estate, yes, there was life before becoming a Beverly Hills, CA Relocation Realtor.
I was born in Hungary to parents who loved to read, travel and enjoy fine dining. Lucky for me I was born into a comfortable life and learn to enjoy the finer things in life during my formative years. These were the foundations that set up my tastes and likes for the rest of my life.
The most important part of life that my parents did not have, was the freedom to express their views, due to the fact, that we were living in a Communist controlled country. In Hungary opposing views were not tolerated.
Hence in 1964 when we went to the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria my parents decided not to return and asked for Political Asylum. Austria allowed foreigners to temporarily stay, until they would move to places like Australia, Canada or other countries. My father wanted to come to the United States and this Legal Immigration process to get permission to the United States was not only lengthy but challenging as well. It took him almost three and a half years to achieve this goal. So, in this process I learned about perseverance, determination and focus on the goal. All beneficial traits to have as a Realtor.
While we lived in Austria, I went to numerous schools and out of necessity I learned German as well. I even spent a year in a Salesian Boarding School in Vienna. This exposed me to different cultures as well as being independent, on my own at an early age. This experience gave me a good foundation for the future.
We landed at JFK International Airport in New York City and we went to Bridgeport CT. The year was 1967, I went through a whirl wind concentrated English learning for six months, in order, that I could pass the entrance exam to High School. Next thing you know, I am at Eastern Michigan University waiting to become an American Citizen. Followed by entrance to the United States Military Academy. Then on to Ft Benning, GA. Infantry Officer Basic Course, Airborne School and Ranger School. Followed by four years in Germany as a US Infantry Platoon Leader, Executive Officer and Company Commander of a Mechanized Infantry Company.
By the time I came to Los Angeles, I have relocated to a handful of countries, which included twice crossing the pond and moved at least thirty-five times. Hence, not surprising I became a Relocation Specialist as soon as I became a Los Angeles Realtor. The exposure to the various cultures has also allowed me to have a better understanding of the concerns that International Clients have when they are considering moving to the Greater Los Angeles area.
As most of you know, we have relocated from Boston, MA to Los Angeles about 22 years ago. Diane and I have been together for about 24+ years and have been called “animal farmers” by our friends. When they see us they always ask: How’s the “animal farm”? The names and the numbers vary depending on when you see us. In case you are wondering, currently we have three cats, Jack, Wiley and Jill.
