About Mike


I was born and raised in Los Angeles and have been a Santa Monica resident for 8 years, living first in the heart of Dogtown off Main Street and now in the Wilshire-Montana corridor with my wife and 6 year old son.

After earning a BA from UCSB and an MA in Communication from the University of Arizona, I worked in higher education teaching and research. When the internet boom happened, I left academia to co-found a niche e-Commerce retail store as a garage business. That company quickly grew into a full-time enterprise that saw me wear every working hat under the sun – customer service, supply chain management, bookkeeper…you name it, I did it. After more than a decade of making my customers happy, I was ready for another challenge. Combining my love of LA living and architecture with a deep-rooted local knowledge and a passion for great service, I became a REALTOR®. The happiness and satisfaction of my clients is of primary importance to me, and I won’t stop until that happens.

My Mission Statement:

My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients.
