Another pillar of his service: "luxury is in the details," whether it's the finest caliber marketing, or fast-on-his-feet negotiating, it is often the nuances and finesse of your Realtor that can make the biggest difference in the end. Working with Geoffrey will deliver the most in-depth knowledge of every neighborhood, every house, every sale, and the priceless insider network of the top agent community.

Born in San Mateo and a Burlingame resident, Geoffrey maintains well-established connections in the community as a Peninsula native. He enjoys Bay Area culture with his wife and business partner and their family of five children ranging from ages newborn to 16.
