I have lived in Nevada County for many years now. I love it here! I have a lovely wife that I met in Nevada City Together we have 3 wonderful children that are or have been members of the Chicago Park 4H. I am also a leader in a couple of 4H projects. If you ever need help signing up, let me know. My family and I love to take walks and swim at Rollins Lake or down at the Yuba River in the summer. My son and I love riding our dirt bikes in the high country. Nevada County has some of the best OHV single track trails California!
Prior to becoming a Realtor, I had worked in the real estate industry as a property manager and proprietor for over a decade. I have a degree in Sustainable Agriculture. I love gardening and being around animals. Above all, I love helping others. I pride myself on my honesty, integrity, hard work, and my service to others. I grew up with a background in construction, starting at the age of 12. I even worked on an Amish-framing crew for a while. In my late teens, early 20's I owned and operated a small bike shop with my father. During my mid 20's I spent some time traveling getting to know this great country, including hiking the Appalachian Trail from PA to Tennessee.
In real estate, I like to specialize in Agricultural related properties, such as ranches, equestrian properties, hobby farms, properties with room for goats and sheep, or even just property with room for a chicken coop and a garden. I love helping people develop and design the use of this type of land. In the past, I have worked with the USDA to obtain a Natural Resource Conservation grant to provide cross fencing to my herd of 25 goats. I would be more than happy to assist anyone in getting in contact with the right people to make this happen for others. Along with Residential Real Estate, I also specialize in Commercial Real estate, with experience in selling historic hotels and buildings, and I have a great team to work with if someone has a business to sell.
No matter how big or small the property or home you are looking to buy or sell, I would love to help you find that special place called home. I look forward to working with anyone that could use my services. At RE/MAX GOLD we have a great team and we work together to help you with everything you need to close your deal. After that, I will personally be available to help you out with anything you need in the future. I have a great list of resources that I have personally used since living here and can put you in contact with someone for almost any need. I cannot wait to hear from you, so give me a call today!
