I was born and raised in Burlingame, just a few miles south of San Francisco, and was exposed to the excitement of real estate early on in life.
Coming from a family with experience in both residential and commercial real estate, I became all too familiar with how rewarding it can be to one day become a broker. After graduating from the University of Oregon in 2013, I didn’t think twice about moving back to the Bay Area to pursue a career in commercial real estate. I started out managing a portfolio of multi-family and commercial properties in San Francisco, and eventually made the transition to work within retail investment property sales. I joined the Capital Pacific team because I wanted to work for a brokerage firm that takes pride in developing and maintaining strong client relationships, in addition to being team-oriented.
What lead you to a career in real estate?
My grandfather was in commercial real estate throughout his working career, and I always envisioned myself one day getting my foot in the door of this great industry. My grandfather was a very charismatic person, and displayed such energy and enthusiasm towards brokering a deal, even in the later years of his life. I vividly remember the property tours we would go on, the various conference calls I would listen to, and one day thinking to myself that this is the career for me.
What do you do to recharge your batteries outside of the office?
After a long work week, a round of golf helps me recharge the battery. Bogeys and lost balls aside, being out on the course allows me to exhale and enjoy the fresh air. Golf, much like real estate, requires patience, risk-taking and mental toughness.
What’s different about Capital Pacific?
The “white glove service” approach with our clients and cohesiveness between brokers in the office is what differentiates Capital Pacific from other firms.
