Cupertino Native with Unmatched Local Knowledge
I was born and raised here. I attended the schools here. I'm raising my own family here. I heavily invest here. For decades I've been a prolific investor in South Bay Area real estate. Aside from my 4 different primary residences, I also buy, remodel, operate, and sell single family rentals and large apartment complexes. The best way to understand the market is through active personal local investment.
As a Cupertino native, I have wonderful childhood memories throughout the South Bay Area and have experienced its changes over my lifetime. There seemed to be nothing but orchards outside the station wagon window while riding between  my  childhood home on Mann Drive and my
grandparents' house "way out" in Saratoga on Blauer Drive. The world was so much smaller (and simpler) back then!
After attending Stevens Creek Elementary, I began computerizing my father's medical practice in Cupertino's Town Center while attending Kennedy Junior High (now Middle) School. This continued until I graduated a valedictorian of Monta Vista High School. Because I was educated by our amazing local schools, I truly understand and appreciate their quality!
I earned a B.S. in Applied Physics (minor in economics) from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, where I met my wife during freshman year. We lived in San Diego after college, then moved to Naglee Park in downtown San Jose in the mid 90's. For the past 20+ years we've lived in Monte Sereno and Saratoga (in 3 different houses within one square mile) as our 3 children make (and made) their ways through Saratoga Elementary, Redwood Middle, and Saratoga High schools.
My wife and I love restoring and improving property to its fullest potential. It all started with our first property in the University Heights district of San Diego and has continued to this day. Just ask me about "Florida Street" to hear some rather amusing stories! We worked very hard and learned a lot as we personally transformed its 70+ year old home and 4 rental cottages from deplorable condition to a stunning pride of ownership asset. Thus began my passion for real estate!
Having been a software engineer for 30+ years, I've naturally applied my analytical skills to develop very simple and useful tools for common investment decisions. Whether you're considering buying, selling, flipping, or a 1031 exchange for your investment portfolio, my tools accurately calculate the most critical numbers to help you make the best decisions.
I'm always available to answer any real estate question(s).  Please feel free to call me anytime!
