1. Where are you from?
I’m a California native and have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley since 1984.
2. How did you get your start in real estate?
I got my start while looking for new opportunities and trying to make a transition out of retail sales arena. I embarked on a journey into the world of finance back in 2002…3 years into my quest, I got licensed as a real estate agent and can proudly say, as of today, I’ve helped a plethora of families accomplish their goals of home ownership.
3. How did you get your start at Brandolino Group?
I’ve always been a true believer of the philosophy that, “…One should be surrounded by a successful sphere of influence if one seeks a successful mindset,” Jeff and the Brandolino Team have proven to be just that sphere I had been searching for…I’m excited to be a part a successful organization and the contribution I will bring to the team.
4. Why did you choose to go into real estate?
I, like most folks, fell in love with the idea of making my own schedule, being my own boss, and the limitless opportunity to grow my business. Not in that order but they all may have played a part in getting into the real estate industry. However, as we all certainly find out quickly, to accomplish all that, you have to be ready for the Grind! I love what I do and do what I love. I have seen many try and many fail…Only the strong survive in this business and I’m proud to say, I’m going on my 11th year in full time real estate. I’d encourage anyone who wants to try it to go for it! But, be mentally prepared for a LOT of hard work!
5. What’s your favorite part about real estate?
Firstly, I love the art of negotiations. But, my absolute favorite thing about real estate is the smiles on my clients faces when I hand them the keys of their new home.
6. What is your favorite part about working at Brandolino Group?
Brandolino Group’s dynamic team shares a wealth of knowledge, valuable resources and a reputation for success that is difficult to match. However, the best aspect of the team is the family environment not just for their team but, their clients as well.
7. Why did you choose LA / Santa Clarita?
I’m actually pretty effective in the Tri-Valley areas (a.k.a. Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley and San Fernando Valley). Being fluent in English and Spanish gives me an edge on expanding my territory outside the Santa Clarita borders. But, SCV will always be my hometown – I feel the most confident and comfortable in my knowledge of the area, the neighborhood values and their amenities.
8. What are 3 things most people don’t know about you?
-I’m an artist by nature (mostly freehand realism)
-I’m also a self-proclaimed “picker” and restorationist of vintage furniture and antiques
-I tore my right achilles heel while breakdancing 🙂
