Working primarily in California’s scenic, other-worldly-looking desert communities of Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley and 29 Palms, high in the mountains above Palm Springs, I have been helping many buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals since 2004.

Professional photography, drone videos and virtual tours ensure that each listing is presented in its best light, and deft utilization of the internet and multiple social media platforms place my clients listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible. I am a listing specialist with marketing techniques to get your property in front the the right Buyer. When I am not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my wife and our 3 children. I love helping others move on to new chapters in life, and to end old ones. I wake up in the mornings energetic, ready to start my day, and giving all glory to God, because I enjoy what I do for a living.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Costa Mesa?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Costa Mesa?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Costa Mesa to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Costa Mesa is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
