My family started in the real estate business back in 1957, and I continued the tradition in 1977. I received my broker’s license in 1981 and have owned and operated my own company since then. I serve the 4 county regions of Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles.
Over the past 30 plus years the business has changed immensely. I remember when I started we used a 1 page contract. The business today requires a minimum of 16 pages, which includes disclosures just to submit an offer. We always did business face to face with the seller and seller’s agent. Today we use e-mail, texting and vary rarely do we meet the owner of the property.
