Describe your journey to real estate.
Interestingly enough, it was not so much that I knew what I wanted to do for my career but what I did NOT want to do. To finance my education, I worked in retail and quickly learned that I wanted to make a more meaningful impact in my customers’ lives. After college, I had the opportunity to work for the Bank of America mortgage department, where I enjoyed learning the behind-the-scene work for what is the base of so many American dreams -- buying a home. A year later, I got recruited to be the branch manager of the Bank of America Van Ness Financial location. During my time as a manager, I helped my clients take advantage of lower interest mortgage rates -- saving them thousands! However, I was not able to be as much help legally in providing them more real estate advice. I, finally, decided to make the career jump into real estate. I enjoy the flexibility of the job, but more importantly, the opportunity to meet new people and help them achieve their real estate goals. Handing them keys to their new home or investment is absolutely priceless.

Dennis was fantastic. From beginning to the end he was there to assure me of the process. He was genuine and spoke professionally. Despite some hiccups from the buyer side, Dennis communicated often and clearly to inform me of the situation. He got me much more than I was expecting. Great Realtor to work with.
