Let’s start with Family! I married my college sweetheart Cindy in 1985 and have now been married over 33 years. She’s an amazing, joyful, and loving wife and friend and I couldn’t be luckier. We have two sons … Michael and Mark. They both live fairly close to us and we love nothing more than spending time together eating, drinking, and laughing when we all get together. When I am not helping my clients, we enjoy an active life with trips to Pine Mountain Lake, Boating on our Pontoon Boat (Floating Family Room with a Motor), Hiking with our dog Molly, Traveling, and I enjoy Golfing w Friends. My hobbies have included having a larger outdoor aviary with numerous small Finches, Dove, Quail, and several others beautiful birds. It’s a great hobby and lots of fun. I have always been a person who enjoys nature and outdoors and that included an unusual hobby of Falconry when I was younger. It was a fascinating activity and very rewarding.
Back before real estate, I worked for many years in a custom cabinet business. That gave me a great avenue to learn about housing, contractors, and quality construction. It’s really has been useful to have that foundation, when I entered the real estate business. I started sweeping floors and within several years was designing new products, was the outside sales person, and expanded our business from small independent contractors to accounts with most of the major home builders from Silicon Valley to Sacramento.
I decided to move into the residential real estate business in 1992 because I wanted to use my prior experiences, skills, creativity and drive to build a successful real estate business. At the end of my first year, I was awarded Rookie of the Year. My next two years I was awarded the Top Selling Agent of the Year awards in an office of 75 agents with far more experience than I had. And by my third year, I was awarded for being in the Top 5% of all Real Estate Producers in the Nation. I was able to stand out compared to other agents because I designed my business around what people wanted … tons of service, no pressure, honesty, a high level of skill, and excellent results.
During my career, I have been a Branch Manager for two years, and Assistant Branch Manager for 10 Years, a Real Estate Trainer in the areas of Contracts, Negotiations, Marketing, and Successful Open Houses. And while I was involved in all of these other activities, I still ran one of the most successful personal real estate businesses in the industry.
My business has mainly comes from being very professional, hard-working, skilled, and from the trust from my friends and clients to help them as well as their referrals of people that they know and love.
If you need my help in planning, making a move or know someone who needs someone that they can trust to help them, then please give me a call.
Thank you - Ted
