Don has been a professional Realtor for over 32 years and continues to achieve successful results, on behalf of his clients, regardless of market conditions. Don has helped more than 2,150 San Diego families-successfully sell or buy a home. With this level of experience there is no transaction or escrow- related problem that he has not handled before. Don has sold an average of one home, every 4.5 days, for the past 32 years. His annual number of homes sold consistently places him amongst the top one percent of all agents in the USA.

Don has developed advanced systems and processes, to help provide structure, consistency and to help insure a predictable and positive outcome for his clients. He takes his responsibility to you seriously and is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Don is recognized as one of San Diego’s foremost authorities when it comes to residential real estate, having sold more homes over his career than 97.3% of all Realtors in San Diego County.

Don has been featured on San Diego’s Chanel 10 News on multiple occasions, as well as numerous interviews on 760AM Talk Radio. He has been an Expert Witness for the San Diego Court system, on behalf of several local law firms, on several occasions regarding real estate matters, and was featured in ‘Who’s Who Among Rising Young Americans’ and Who’s Who in American Real Estate’

Additionally, Don has been a panelist on over 20 real estate panels where hundreds of agents at each event were able to interview San Diego’s most successful agents to learn ‘best practices’ and how to excel at customer service.

Don is the recipient of San Diego Magazine’s “Best in Client Satisfaction Award” for the past eight years in a row. Don is also the recipient of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award and the highly coveted ‘Lifetime Achievement’ Award’.

Don consistently sells homes faster and for more money, too. In a recent statistical search of the local MLS the numbers show that Don’s listings, sell on average for 98.6% of the Sellers asking price – versus other MLS agents selling for 96.2% of the Sellers asking price. On a $500,000 home, for example, that difference of 2.4% could result in an additional $12,000 to the Sellers. 

Additionally, based on Dons last 500 home sales, his Listings sell within 38 days on average, compared to other MLS agent’s market average of 59 days. This saves Don’s Clients valuable time-and money- by selling their home 36% faster-and for More Money!

Don served on the Professional Standards Committee (Ethics and Arbitration) for the San Diego Association of REALTORS® for 16 years. He was appointed and served as Chair of the Committee, as well. Learning how to best protect a client’s interest, in the Contract-and throughout the transaction process- has proven to be of great benefit to Don’s clients.

A Team can provide far superior caring and competent service compared to an individual agent.
