Wayne started his Real Estate Career at a young age working with his father and uncle in their construction companies. He got his real estate license at 22 working for a local Shasta County Real Estate Office. At the same time, he was building spec homes and continuing to work as a general contractor.
In 1981, Wayne moved to the Monterey Peninsula. Over the years, he became a builder-developer. He built single family custom homes, sub-divisions, medical and commercial buildings. He owned and operated hotels and apartment buildings.
In 1996 he and his wife, Freddie, moved to the Sacramento area where Wayne got his real estate broker’s license. Freddie joined him in the business in 1998 and they started Real Estate 1. They opened a mortgage company in conjunction with their real estate brokerage. Within a few years, they were selling 100+ homes per year.
In 2003, they tired of the congestion in the Sacramento area and moved to Shasta County to work in the Real Estate 1 office in Redding with their daughter, Denise.
In 2011, they decided to become a Windermere franchise because of the many marketing benefits for their clients.
Because of his in-depth knowledge of real estate, construction, finance and negotiation, along with his friendly and focused attention to his client’s needs and goals, Wayne’s clients have a “leg up” over the competition when either selling or purchasing real estate.
Wayne’s dedication to serving through teaching and educating numerous professional peers, along with his outstanding sales achievements, earned him the prestigious Shasta Association of Realtors-Realtor of the Year Award in 2007.
For fun, Wayne leads Porsche driving tours throughout Northern
California in his spare time. Wayne is the elected President of the
Porsche Club of America, Shasta Region.
