About Me


Hello and thank you for visiting! I service Shasta County, the Redding, Anderson, Palo Cedro, and Shasta Lake areas.

I grew up in Redding, graduating from Shasta High School. I attended college at Bakersfield State, Oklahoma State and graduated from Fresno State with a degree in Criminology. I began my real estate career in the summer of 1996. At this time the market was flat and continued for several years. In 2000 the market started to change and the large number of inventory started to reduce slowly at the start but in 2001 as the months past the market picked up momentum and in 2003, a sellers market was created and we experienced the most explosive real estate market booms in history.

The hot market leveled off at the end of 2005. Now in 2011 it is a buyers market again and bank foreclosers are most popular. I anticipate that this year home prices in Shasta County will continue to decline which will drive prices further down, there is no recovery in site. I’m a full time realtor prepared to provide excellent service to my clients. From 1996-2007 I coached wrestling at Shasta High School. In 2007 after 11 seasons I retired from coaching. I wanted to spend more time with my family and focus on my clients real estate needs. Coaching was a great experience and today I still remain in close contact with many of my former athletes.
