I was born and raised in Woodland, CA along with my whole family. College educated then I went into the oil industry as a land agent. After a short stint at that I became a grain buyer that covered the whole Sacramento Valley.
I started my real estate career at the age of 24 in 1976 after being groomed for the real estate job by my two previous jobs, I formed Farm & Ranch Realty and have continued working the Sacramento Valley until today.
In my 35 years experience I have had the privilege of selling, purchasing, developing all sorts of agricultural properties. Projects include development of government programs, such as Wetland Land Reserve, EQIP, WHIP, CREP, CRP, etc. With this experience and my dealings with the county's planning departments I have been able to do lot line adjustments, parcel maps, conservation easements, Certificate of Compliance, Williamson Act contract revisions, etc. and become very acquainted with their policies and procedures.
Farm management is another part of expertise. I also farm with my family on our ranches and leased properties. We grow rich, corn, wheat safflower, sunflowers and walnuts.
I developed Farm & Ranch Realty with the philosophy that if you operate with honesty, integrity, confidentiality and high standards of professionalism we will succeed.
