What better way to describe yourself than words from a previous client...this testimonial was written by a client I assisted recently with the sale of their home. "Brad did a fabulous job for me in preparing the house, pricing, and marketing. We had 160 groups come thru the open houses held over 2 weekends and we got multiple offers ending in getting 12 percent over the asking price - the house sold in 9 days!!!! All along Brad was precise in his knowledge and execution. If it was possible to give more than 5-star rating in all of the categories - I would have given him that rating. One of the best and nicest professionals I have had the pleasure to do business with!!!" ------------------ "I am a husband, father of three, techie, apple-user, perfectionist, motivator, educator and of course, real estate enthusiast…I envision my profession as a Realtor® as a great privilege, earned through building trust, overcoming challenges and exceeding expectations.

He is a second-generation Realtor®, following in his father's footsteps after graduating from Cal Poly SLO in 2003 with an economics degree, and is now the CEO and managing broker of NextHome Lifestyles, the real estate brokerage that he and his father started in 2018. He also currently operates his real estate sales practice by leading a team of top-tier real estate professionals focused on providing an innovative and creative approach to facilitating the purchase and sale of real estate while ensuring his clients receive the highest level of customer care and satisfaction.

Brad further describes his services as “concierge-style,” providing a full-service business model, which for home sellers translates into the scheduling and oversight of all pre-listing activities (repairs, renovations, staging, cleaning, etc) as well as all the marketing services (photography, videography, floor plans, website development, etc). For homebuyers, Brad & his team will preview properties, review seller inspections & disclosures, research sales comparables & provide updates on local market conditions, plus much more.
