  • As a licensed Real Estate Broker and President of California Practice Sales, Inc., I have been appraising and brokering dental practices since 1974. As one of the youngest stockbrokers hired by Merrill-Lynch (in the top 10% of my class), I was top producer of the 40-broker office in Santa Ana, California. It was during this time that I was introduced to dental practice sales and realized that there was a niche market that could benefit from someone with my background and skills. My degree in Finance, combined with a solid work ethic and dedication to the industry, has allowed me to serve the dental community for over 30 years. As a Founding Member of American Dental Sales, I have lectured at USC, UCLA, and Loma Linda; personally visited over 6,000 dental offices in Southern California; recorded video tapes and CDs for buyers and sellers; and have been blessed with over 2,500 successful dental practice sales in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, and other Southern California communities. Recognized by the dental community as an individual of the highest integrity with a firm grasp of the mechanics for successful transitions, I offer to you a simple suggestion: if you want the best, work with the best. I live for the difference that I can make in the lives of my clients, and I work passionately toward this. Our track record of successful dental practice sales and repeat business support our basic standard that we are not in this for the moment, we are involved in this industry for the rest of our lives. Let California Practice Sales, Inc., channel this focus and dedication if you are interested in selling or purchasing a dental office. I look forward to helping you.

  • As the Executive Vice President and Partner of California Practice Sales, Inc., I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. Licensed by the California Department Real Estate, I look forward to serving you in your quest to sell your dental office. Originally from the east coast, I acquired my Associate Degree in Applied Science from DeVry Institute of Technology. My strong engineering background has disciplined me to capture every detail in order to bring maximum value in a timely manner if you are looking to sell your office. I relocated to Southern California in 1984 when my career with a global communications provider required competent leadership to develop new markets. Since moving to California, I also continued my education in various degree programs at Keller Graduate School of Management. For the past 25 years I was employed by a global network provider in sales and strategic development. My target was to develop sales and engineering teams and to act as an executive interface with high profile corporate clientele world-wide. Additionally, for the past 8 years I successfully managed real estate and financial portfolios for an international financial institution. My focus is to provide you with the highest quality of service and to secure your confidence that your private, personal and financial information will be handled with the utmost care and diligence in a strictly confidential manner. My track record assures you of timely accurate decisions based on a foundation of expertise, dedication, morals and ethics. The components of this foundation have been my rule and guide throughout my personal and professional career. From the first time we speak together, you will know from our interaction that I will invest whatever it takes to earn the title of your most trusted adviser.
