About

My philosophy is simple. If I were making a purchase how would I like to be treated? I have dealt with far too many people who don’t understand what it means to work in a customer service driven business. As a result it helped shape how I run my business and more importantly how I treat people.

I graduated in 2002 with a Theology and Religious Studies degree from the University of San Diego. Originally my aspirations were to study business but seemingly God had other plans for me. It was very awakening as it helped shape not just how I act in a business setting but how I make decisions every day of my life. I truly believe it prepared me for the real world far better than any other choice I could have made.

After graduation I remained in San Diego where I worked at the San Diego Sports Arena and Surfdog Records in their marketing departments. Music and sports have always been passions of mine. After getting my feet wet in the professional world an opportunity presented itself to move back to Orange County. I began my real estate career on the Escrow side working with Scott Watrous at Freedom Escrow. It was there I learned the inner workings of the escrow process which has proven valuable over the years.

After obtaining my salesperson’s license in 2005 I decided to make the move to the real estate sales side where I have been ever since. My journey started with long time Newport Beach staple Strada Properties and was one of the first agents to start Hom Real Estate Group working with well respected agent Rob Norquist.

From there I was approached by Waterpointe Homes with the unique opportunity to be their exclusive sales agent for all of Waterpointe’s projects and homes. When Waterpointe Real Estate Group opened it’s first residential sales office on Balboa Island in 2011 the transition was a natural fit.

The evolution of Waterpointe continued when it became clear that the business was being led towards construction and away from a traditional brokerage. Waterpointe Custom Home Builders was born, evolved and outgrew the office space on Balboa Island. The office moved to Corona del Mar in 2014 and to its current location in the iconic 610 building in Fashion Island in 2016. My role grew from a resale agent to include the construction side where I manage bidding, contracts, and multiple other roles.  Learning the construction process has been both fascinating and extremely educational.

It has been a fun ride watching Waterpointe become one of the most trusted and quality homebuilders in the Newport Beach area. To date I have been happily working with Waterpointe since 2006 and I look forward to wherever life and business takes us next. Working with my brother Garrett, mom Christina and everyone in our office on a daily basis is a blessing. 

It is fascinating to look back on the decisions I have made and the path I have walked that led me to where I am today. After years of effort I have become one of the top 100 selling agents in Newport Beach. I married my beautiful and talented wife Amy in 2011 and we live with our daughter Emmy Joy and puppy Ozzie in East Side Costa Mesa. 

My areas of expertise include Balboa Island, Corona Del Mar, Harbor View Homes, Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.
