I started writing about real estate in February of 2007, but my journey began several years prior. If you want the full story, please read Sounding the Alarm.Who I Am
I worked with real estate my entire career as a development project manager, land planner, and investment fund manager. I am passionate about real estate and the analysis of real estate markets. As a consultant to the land development industry, I successfully delivered of over $100 million in real estate assets as a project manager and contributed to hundreds of projects in various other roles.
I earned a Master of Science in Land Development from Texas A&M University, and obtained a real estate brokers license in California (01868521). I have more than twenty years experience working in a variety of real estate related businesses, and over two years managing real estate investment funds focusing on foreclosure properties. I purchased, renovated, rented, and sold more than 50 foreclosure properties in Las Vegas.
My expertise chronicles in daily posts, my OCHN Market Reports, and in my book, The Great Housing Bubble. I saved countless families from financial ruin; I publicly predicted the collapse of house prices and worked diligently for years to convince people not to buy housing while prices declined. As prices dropped to affordable levels, I sought to help people navigate the treacherous waters of real estate acquisition and sales. I believe that without my help, many people would not receive the honest service and accurate analysis they deserved. After helping people ignore the Siren's Song of unlimited real estate wealth and avoid crashing on the foreclosure rocks, I could not abandon them when the time came to finally get the home they had been waiting for. Therefore, I teamed up with Shevy Akason in 2009 to start Home Guides. Since then he and his team of dedicated agents have been serving OC Housing News readers with diligence and care.Where I'm Going
