There are a lot of good agents in San Diego, so I have to work that much harder to be the best agent for you. I started real estate by obtaining education in critical areas that most agents simply are not willing to dedicate the time to do – earning licenses as a broker (highest level), real estate appraiser, general contractor as well as personally flipping homes. I understand lending from my years in banking – the youngest AVP at Bank of America. Obtaining this level of knowledge takes time but is extremely valuable to our clients, add our family approach and our team becomes the perfect fit for home buyers and sellers.
Kindred places a high level of importance on education. Mike takes this to heart. He has years of experience managing a mortgage loan company and transitioned into real estate to get closer to the client. Crunching numbers was fun, but there typically is a lack of getting to know the client, understanding why they might be buyer or selling - being a Kindred team member adds the human interaction that I love so much. Mike also prides himself as consistently listing and selling homes that become the highest sold in the neighborhood.
Allie has years of experience in real estate with processing files and making sure transactions are smooth. Like Mike she loved real estate but was missing the human touch. As a listing assisting Allie is able to meet clients face to face, learn about their home and their needs and makes sure Kindred exceeds their expectations.

Every real estate team should have a Sean. We would love if there were never any speed bumps when selling homes; however, every real estate agent relies on third parties to varying extents. When there is an urgent matter in the field (for sale sign was taken - yup we have had that), a lock box sends us an error notice, etc) Sean is our go to guy to immediately fix those problems an removing any client stress.
