Broker, Consultant & Expert Witness California Boutique Hospitality
Inn Sellers|California's Many Faces|Inn Buyers|Inn Listings

Welcome to my website, a place where I introduce my professional boutique hospitality brokerage services not only to California innkeepers who may be considering the sale of their hospitality business property but also to aspiring innkeepers and international investors who hope to purchase a boutique hotel, luxury inn or historic lodging in California, a state that long has dominated US tourism.*

In addition to world-class Marketing designed to attract qualified buyers from around the world, professional services include Broker Price Opinions, Consulting and Expert Witness Testimony. A lifelong passion for antique architecture and support of the National Trust for Historic Preservation further allow me to specialize in both residential and commercial Historic Landmarks located anywhere in our country.

As a California-licensed Broker, my primarily goal, of course, is to “sell California” – a vast and magnificent realm stretching from Mexico to Oregon and then from Nevada to the Pacific.  On a daily basis, I am fortunate to meet successful, statewide innkeepers and to work with savvy, well-qualified international investors and aspiring innkeepers, many of whom come from across our country but many more who, increasingly, venture to the “left coast” from abroad. For all, the “Golden State” continues to be known as the “Promised Land!”

Welcomed by the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and nestled amidst snow-capped Sierra peaks and rugged coastal shorelines, California always has been one of the world’s most celebrated and desirable “destinations,” yearly attracting more visitors from near and afar than any other state in the Union. 

Many fine hospitality opportunities are available as “exclusive” listings offered by sellers who prefer marketing discretion and no advertising.  These range from blissful coastal beauties to historic Gold Country charmers, from elegant wine country boutique hotels to sophisticated urban inns ... and now in 2018 with the State's legalization of recreational Cannabis, even more "licensed ancillary" hospitality opportunities are available. For more information, visit California Bureau of Cannabis Control at:

If your dream is to purchase or if your goal is to sell, -- and you wish to learn more about my professional services --, please contact me.  If you require a quality Broker Price Opinion or professional Expert Witness Testimony or if you simply wish to benefit from Consulting Services, I hope to hear from you. My goal is to serve so my honor always is to be asked to serve.
