Tell us about your professional experience and goals:
Calif. Lic. since 1976--33 years--broker since 1977. That year, I became the first one-person office to have a PRC MLS computer. Less than 6 months later, PRC hired me to market their system nationally and train Realtors on how to use it for profit. I participated in the creation of PRC's commercial on-line system--first used in Houston and then in Sacramento. I parted with PRC and relocated to the California desert in 1980.
I started originating mortgages in 1983 with the CARRIE MAC arm of CAR (Calif Assn of Realtors for-profit subsidiary) while in my second year as our Board's President
I had 18 years of heavy duty New York City apparel industry management experience as a menswear manufacturer prior to moving to California and entering real estate. I was the broker and 50% Partner in largest Comm RE office in the "greater" Palm Springs area during the late 90's.
Did not enjoy 2-year retirement in Mexico 2003 & 2004.
My next challenges: I want to see how large and profitable I can grow this retail/wholesale Arizona mortgage business.
