About Brian


I feel extremely fortunate to work and live in the East Bay. My understanding of the area comes from enjoying the lifestyle here: Weekends at the farmers market, strolling around Lake Merritt or hiking in the hills with my dog, taking my kids to one of the many neighborhood parks, catching a movie at the Grand Lake Theater and dining at the expanding list of award winning Oakland and Berkeley restaurants. Helping fellow residents sell their homes and helping others buy in the East Bay is a natural extension of my connection to the area. I live in the Oakland Hills with my wife, two little boys, and Bella, our yellow lab.
