Jeff approaches his profession daily with unparalleled energy and a quest for excellence. This is evident in his passion and compassion for his clients. Jeff and his team work daily to meet the needs of their customers at the highest level.
With a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he graduated with Distinction, Jeff worked as a Manufacturing Engineer, a detail oriented profession that lends itself well to the detailed nature of a real estate transaction. He also served for 7 years as a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of San Diego after graduating #1 from the academy. His path ultimately led to real estate, which is not surprising as both his father and grandfather were successful real estate brokers and developers throughout San Diego County. He actually was “born to be a Realtor”! His success and accolades are a surprise to no one; especially his many satisfied clients.
Jeff, his wife Hillary, their son Ryland, and daughter Brynley live in their beloved Mt. Helix area where Jeff was born and raised. In their limited spare time, they enjoy hiking, surfing, beach cruises, and kid’s sporting events; but mostly, being together as a family.
Jeff’s customers will, and have, testified to the fact that he and his team bring them excellence, expertise, integrity, hard-work, passion, compassion, and attention to detail during every step of the way towards making their real estate dreams come true. One of Jeff’ s favorite quote s is by Mohatma Gandhi ; “Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.”
