I created ConejoValleyGuy.com in hopes of giving people the resource they need to find their perfect home in the Conejo Valley. We all start our shopping online and there’s nothing different with real estate and home buying. There are plenty of sites out there to find and view homes, yet none to help learn the ins and outs of neighborhoods. So, I set out to take my years of experience and put it online. I want to help you settle into the neighborhood that suits you best by giving an honest and straightforward breakdown of the Conejo Valley and helping you purchase your next home.

What makes me different than thousands of agents in my area?
I like to be straightforward with my clients – you ask my opinion, I’ll share it with you. And it’s not always my opinion I’ll share; I tap into the feedback from the hundreds of other clients who have gone through the same process as you. Plus, I avoid drama and rarely get upset. I strive to make the process enjoyable and exciting – like it should be!
What’s my favorite part about being an agent?
I get to help people realize one of their biggest dreams of home ownership. I’m also passionate about online marketing and showing off the Conejo Valley. I’ve spent countless hours developing my website and videos, writing and tweaking content, listening to podcasts, and absorbing as much as I can about marketing and selling homes.
What kind of clients do I work with?
I work with people who tend to be tech-savvy and resourceful. They find me seeking unfiltered guidance, neighborhood expertise, and the local inside scoop. They are also friendly, respectful and appreciative which is why I love what I do.
Where do I live and what do I love about it?
I have lived in Oak Park since 2005. What’s not to love? Rolling hills, open space, trails and parks, and close to all our best amenities. I was born in Santa Monica, graduated from Calabasas High and CA State University Northridge, and I’ve lived in Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Moorpark.
What do I like to do (other than sell homes)?
I love to travel. Over the last several years, I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time visiting other parts of the country and world which has helped broaden my perspective. I also hike, mountain bike, golf, go to basketball games, and sweat through workout classes. I’m addicted to the Internet and spend far too much time on my devices.
Why am I the right agent to help you buy a home?
I have a masters in communication (not really) – but I am known for being quick to respond to texts, emails, and phone calls and I leverage technology to make the process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. I also have the connections with local agents and homeowners that gives my buyers an advantage when looking for unlisted homes or competing against multiple offers. I’ve spent my whole life in the area and I’m not afraid to give you the real pros and cons of each neighborhood. Did I mention I’m a Certified Negotiation Expert, too?
Why am I the right agent to help you sell your home?
I thrive online and that’s where the buyers are. My home selling plan is built on three main pillars: Cutting edge marketing, consistent communication, and proven negotiation. Everything I do is designed to reach the maximum number of buyers in the shortest period of time and make them fall in love with your home long before they see it in person. I constantly seek new and innovative marketing to help make your home stand out from the others.
