About Don

I am a lifelong Sonoma County resident. I have been in the real estate industry since 2002. In 2011, I moved to First Tech to work as a Mortgage Loan Officer. My five years of realtor experience have provided me with a broad perspective on real estate transactions, making me very familiar with the contractual obligations of the buyer. 

I know that buying a home and going through the mortgage process can be stressful, tiring, time consuming, and overwhelming. There are a lot of things happening at once. When it comes to the home loan details, my goal is to make it simple. In addition, I value the trust I have earned from my industry relationships, and it is my priority to keep my clients apprised of the loan status at all times, knowing that time is of the essence when it comes to real estate. 

On the personal side, I love where I live, and I enjoy weekend getaways and travel. Sonoma County is perfectly placed close to the coast, a few hours from Tahoe snow, minutes from renowned wineries, and only one hour north of San Francisco. I believe in work/life balance, and I love spending time with my son, Ben, my daughter Maddison, my friends, and my dog.  I also find therapy in working on my home!
