Immigrated to California in 1979, grew up in Orange County with 2 amazing brothers, a devoted stay-at-home mother, and a dentist as a father who loved everything golf. Played for SCJGA junior golf tournaments and AGJA for most of our childhood, then college golf. Older brother received a full scholarship to USC, I received a scholarship to SDSU, and younger brother played golf for the U.S. Air Force Academy. Even though it made my father very happy that I wanted to take lessons, it was only because my brother had a handsome golf teacher. After a few months, my coach moved to Boston and I was stuck with this old man’s sport. Golf was not nearly as popular as it is today. After graduating from UCLA, I became interested in real estate and investment to build my own portfolio and plan for retirement. Both residential and commercial investments were of interest and I started a property management company for the broker that I worked for. After 15 years in the real estate industry, I have worked for and met amazing human beings. I have consulted and assisted in golf course acquisitions and still do today. Maintained long lasting relationships with a client/investor interested in setting up a medical device company (R&D, distribution) in San Francisco who introduced me to Dr. Mitchel Berger, Chairman, Dept. of Neurological Surgery, UCSF. To me, life is too short, and my time is very valuable. My family and friends are my support system and my everything. When you find coworkers and clients who are of strong moral character and ethics, they too become very important people in my life. I treat them as I would want to be treated and with a humble heart. Life should be about sharing your wisdom and helping others, as well as paying it forward. In real estate, this is very possible which makes it very rewarding on many levels.
