This photo near Lodi, California was taken the year before I moved to Reno.

I served in the Air Force for four years. After a year in Vietnam, my last year in the military I was stationed at Beale Air Force base California (near Sacramento).

During that final year in the military, I would on occasion come to Reno drawn by the bright city lights and excitement of the casinos.
I have been working in the residential real estate industry since 2004. I have a reputation based on honesty, integrity and knowledge.

Among my achievements, I was the #1 Exclusive BUYER AGENT in the Reno/Sparks Area FIVE years in a row.

I have earned a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation - the Gold Standard for residential real estate - held by less than 3% of Realtors.
Prior to my Real Estate career, I worked in Casino Management for 22 years at the Peppermill Hotel Casino in Reno, Nevada.
I was an Art major in college. I designed my own website from scratch and I created the logo for Real Estate of Reno Sparks.

I married the lovely Shaowei in 1981 and became an adult a few years later.
