About Me

Knowledge of SF 
My love affair with SF started over 20 years ago when I used to regularly visit the city with work. Over the last decade I have lived in the Bay Area, Toronto, New York & London, this being my third stint of living in San Francisco!

Healthy Obsession with Property 
I have bought and sold property to live in and for investment purposes in the UK, Europe and the US. My family were property developers in London and we still have investment properties there. More recently, we bought, remodeled and sold a house in the Bay Area.

Strong in Negotiation
My decades-long experience of deal-making will be invaluable in helping you navigate the process of buying and selling property.

Intuitive
People buy and sell property for a myriad of reasons, impulses and emotions. I can quickly and accurately evaluate people and situations, whatever their background which is invaluable to working towards the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

Loyal and Committed 
I will fight for you to find the perfect home or the perfect price for your property.

Good Communicator 
My motto is “Be honest, keep it simple”. Throughout my career I have been a straight-talker while listening to customers, finding out their wants and needs with the aim of delivering on their expectations.

Marketing Expertise 
I have built digital brands that have informed, educated and entertained millions of customers, I will bring this expertise and focus to the real estate market. 

Polished and Credible 
While representing you I will perform to the highest standards of professionalism. I am a people person and adept at putting people at ease, I’m simply good to do business with.

My aim is simple
To make buying and selling property as enjoyable and fulfilling an experience as possible for my clients. By relying on my skills as a great communicator and negotiator, I aim to deliver the best outcome with a minimum of fuss. After a 20+ year career in technology media in London, I first moved to the Bay Area with my wife in 2010. In December 2018, I decided to make property my full-time career. I’ve had a healthy obsession with property, particularly modern design and architecture, for some time. My family were property developers in London and we still have investment properties there. I have also bought and sold property to live in and for investment purposes in Europe and the US so I’m no stranger to the process of buying and selling property.In my career in media, I built digital brands that informed, educated and entertained millions of customers as well as negotiated and managed multi-million dollar marketing campaigns. I bring this expertise in deal-making and knowledge of marketing to the real estate business.
I am supported by Corcoran Global Living (formerly Zephyr)
If you’re new to this market then there’s a couple of differences in how buying and selling real estate works here in the US. Firstly, the industry is highly regulated. Which is a good thing as it provides protection for consumers looking to buy and sell property. All real estate agents are state-licensed, they have to pass a state exam which entails 4-6 months of study. They then have to work for a brokerage. I chose Zephyr (pre-merger with Corcoran) at the time as they offer the best training and support in the city.
