Sean’s greatest strength is his ability to strategize. With over a thousand real estate transactions to his credit, he approaches every deal in layers working through the multiple opportunities and obstacles to help his clients reach their goals. A former chess master, Sean sees every communication from the buyer’s and the seller’s position. It is this vision and a commitment to the philosophy of “win/win or no deal” that guides him to anticipate and alleviate a lot of the stress and the tension that can develop during even the simplest real estate transaction.
A rare commodity, Sean is a third generation native Los Angeleno who grew up on the Westside, surfed in Venice, played chess in Santa Monica. This full-of-life experience provides him with an intimate understanding of the community and the neighborhood. He began a real estate career in 1985 following in the footsteps of his father and his grandfather who were both industry stalwarts on the Westside of Los Angeles.
Since then, Sean has forged his own path. With over 25 years experience in home sales, title insurance, mortgage brokering he has a reputation for maintaining the highest standards of integrity, and market knowledge. When it comes to transactions in the Westside Triangle, Sean provides clients with a level of interpretation of the available data that is unmatched by competitors. He has the ability to put the most complex transactions together, keep them on track and follow them through to completion.
Sean is good with statistics and great with numbers, but where he truly excels is with people. He is certainly competitive but compassionate, fair and caring to ensure that the relationships he makes in business are as profitable as the escrows he closes.
