Ernie Carswell and Partners
Frank Lloyd Wright described architecture’s purpose aptly; “Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.” And I find LA’s unique homes and diverse neighborhoods give this city its own eclectic soul.
I am fortunate to have worked in all parts of this expansive city. In fact, rather than focus on a certain area, I follow my clients and they crisscross LA’s most exclusive, diverse and up and coming neighborhoods.
My sales and strategy acumen began in an unlikely place; the US military. During the 1990s, I served as a newly minted Naval Intelligence Officer in Operation Desert Storm. In essence, I sold “strategy and tactics” to wartime commanders. During my subsequent tour at Naval Special Warfare Command, I “sold” civilian companies on the importance of developing mobile intelligence technology that SEALS could deploy with.
In 2006, I donned a new uniform; a suit and tie and thus began my real estate career. Working closely with Ernie Carswell, a distinguished veteran in the LA luxury real estate market, I cut my teeth executing 30 plus transactions per year. This relationship has blossomed into a very successful partnership.
At the US Naval Academy, I honed skills including integrity, attention to detail and esprit de corps. As a naval officer, I built upon these skills in highly volatile environments. And as your real estate agent, I will guide you through complex and at times, difficult transactions.
In my spare time, I enjoy being a first time father, attending musicals of almost any kind and a chilled Hanger One martini – served up with a couple olives. In addition, I am also involved with veterans groups and support a variety of charities.
