I grew up in the small picturesque town of Meiners oaks on the outskirts of Ojai, California. Most of my daysgrowing up where spent at Lake Casitas fishing, Riding my bike around the neighborhood with my life long friends,or at back yard BBQ's. That love for the outdoors has been with me ever since, and now I'm the one that's behindthe grill. Looking back I've come to appreciate how blessed I was to have grown up in a small quiet town. Myinterest in real estatebeganthe day I witnessed my mother close escrow and receive the keys to her very ownhome. I can't even begin to describe the amount of excitement and emotions, it was a beautiful moment. I'll neverforget it, i'll never forget how proud she was. Since that day I've dedicated my life to spreading the happiness,excitement, and joys of home ownershipon to others.
