Since 1990 I have successfully negotiated the purchase, sale, financing and development of real estate transactions totaling over $2.5 billion. My 25 years in the real estate industry encompass a broader range of experience than virtually any other broker in the area.
I have attracted clients with my holistic approach to buying and selling homes, and my work consistently reflects my belief that a home influences every aspect of your life – who you meet, what you do on the weekends, where you work, where your kids go to school; every relationship you develop throughout your lifetime is influenced tremendously by where you live. For this reason, I’m satisfied when I find the best home to fit my clients’ personalities, values, and lifestyles.
In addition to being an agent, I develop homes in some of the most prominent neighborhoods in Southern California. My custom built homes continue to set the high water mark for sales in Brentwood Park and the Pacific Palisades.
Currently, my wife of 8 years, Lauren, and I live in Pacific Palisades with our two labs, Maggie and Jack, and our five-year-old daughter, McKay and our son Hugh IV born in January. We really take pleasure in mingling with our friends and neighbors at the local farmers market on Sunday’s, followed by brunch at Mayberry’s and let’s not forget the ever so essential pit-stop by Baskin Robbins 31 flavors for a healthy dose of Classic Chocolate, Coffee Delight or whatever else the heart desires!
Recently we purchased a home in Pacific Palisades, which for me epitomizes a sense of family and community. I consider it to be one of the best kept secrets in Los Angeles and I am fortunate to be starting our family in a beautiful home there. When I am not working, I enjoy golfing, skiing, and family walks with Lauren, McKay, Maggie, and Jack; although like many dog owners, it’s not clear to me who actually walks who!
Lauren and I really enjoy traveling as well. One of our many favorite places in California to visit is Ojai Valley Inn where we held our wedding ceremony. It’s such a serene, relaxing place in an intimate setting with a breathtaking backdrop of the Topa Topa Mountains. A perfect location to unwind and rejuvenate; and as we all know, “Location, Location, Location” is everything.
It is my life experience as a family man and my work as an agent and developer that has given me a first-hand perspective of the tremendous pressure and emotions involved in buying or selling a home. These attributes have driven me to develop long-term partnerships and friendships with my home-owner clients.
