Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? Who? I’ve been told that I resemble Tom Cruise and Adam Sandler.
If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but NOT related to you) who would it be and where would you go? I would go to Nobu in Manhattan with Elon Musk.
Rules to live by in business: My rulebook is simple – Be honest, transparent and always put clients first. I make every effort to secure the best deal available for my clients, while trying to provide them with an overall good experience throughout the entire process. It’s important for me to have my clients recognize that I’m committed in doing the right thing on their behalf, whether it results in business or not.
What is your DREAM job? (NOT your current job) I have to say that being a luxury real estate developer in Bel Air or Beverly Hills, CA would be the “dream job” for me.
