This is a glimpse into my daily life as a Realtor, dad and admirer of beautiful and interesting things as I go about my day in Alameda and beyond.
I've have been a Real Estate Broker for over 19 years I have been blessed to be part of peoples lives and somehow connected to their life story through their home.
I feel that the homes and buildings are a living breathing thing that really do choose the owners. I was somehow chosen to be the Sole Proprietor of the House of Shields Saloon across from the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco. I believe I was picked because she knew I would restore her with my own hands and would not do anything foolish like demo the entire space and put LED lights everywhere.
I also feel that I was meant to be in the home my family resides in now. Its a long story but we are the third owners of an Italianate Victorian in over a 125 years located in what was once Chapin Park which was adjacent to Mastick Park in Alameda.
Somehow this was meant to be my calling. It is almost an effortless journey helping others which in return helps me keep doing what I love.
