A Bit About Me:
I consume a book every week and a half, and enjoy reading on the following topics: personal finance, tax strategy, real estate, retirement investments, time management, organizational skill, and personal growth. A few of my favorite authors are Malcolm Gladwell (Outliers, Blink, and Tipping Point), Tony Robbins (Awaken the Giant Within, Money Master the game, and Unshakable), Stephen Covey (7 habits of Highly Effective People), Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich, and Outwitting the Devil), Stephen Hawking (The grand Design, and The Universe in a Nutshell).
I love ski, hike, and salsa dance. I practice yoga, meditation, and Pilates several times a week. I am an avid traveler and adventurists. A few of the highlights are that I have been to 25+ countries, and have motorcycled across 13 countries.
I am a licensed Broker in California and a Broker Sales-person in Nevada. I have been practicing real estate since 2010, and have worked in both the commercial and residential real estate industries. From 2016 to 2018, I worked for an appraisal management company assessing foreclosure properties and values for capital market portfolios. Our clients consisted of large banks and government entities such as Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. I consistently achieved an average revision rate of 2% or less, which means that my work was accepted by these entities 98% of the time. I also provided flip property and return on investment analysis.
In 2011, I started a company called Select Lockers LLC with a few friends. At the time of sale we had 13 locations across the Las Vegas Strip. Select Lockers owned 1,300 cell phone-charging lockers within major hotels such as the Bellagio, MGM Grand, the Venetian, and the Cosmopolitan Hotel. From 2011 to 2015 I was the COO and managing partner. I oversaw a staff of 10 individuals, and throughout that time I handled all the operations. I recruited, hired, and scheduled all of the staff. I also coordinated the installation of the product and maintained strong communications with the customer. Throughout the time that the company was still in the start-up phase, I worked in the residential real estate industry.
