- License #:
I was born in Merced, Ca. and grew up in San Leandro, so I know the Bay Area very well. I originally obtained my Real Estate licenses in 1979 after I graduated from the University of the Pacific with a Teaching degree. My parents were real estate brokers, so I’m the second generation in the field.
After attending U.O.P on a football scholarship, I was not drafted. However, I was able to sign free agent contracts with the Minnesota Vikings and the San Francisco 49ers the following year. Unfortunately, I was released by both teams but it was a great experience that I will always cherish. With football still being in my blood, I coached football and taught High school and college for a few years. Economics was one of the major factors in leaving the educational field.
After leaving Coaching/Teaching I started my Real Estate career and then in 2004 I obtained by Real Estate Brokers license and founded D. Jones & Associates, Realtors. I’m a member of the California Association of Realtors, Delta Association of Realtors and Women’s Council of Realtors. A few of my designations are e-Pro, C.D.P.E. (Certified Distress Property Expert) and C.P.R.ES (Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist). I’m constantly continuing my education by attending Real Estate training classes and seminars to stay on top of the current events and changes that occur almost daily in our society.
I’ve enjoyed supporting the community and especially kid’s programs. I guess the biggest highlight was being a co-founder in 2005 of the Delta Patriots Youth Football & Cheer program in Brentwood. I served as the Athletic Director and Head Varsity Football Coach. I’m proud to say the program has flourished over the years since I left.
I take pride in helping people whether it’s a first time buyer, investor, young adults or seniors. I’m well diverse and able to recognize what people are trying to accomplish with their goals and dreams. The more my clients understand the process the better they can be prepared. I have a buyers and seller’s guides that simplify the process so my clients can understand what to expect, so it will be less stressful. Because the biggest fear is the unknown.
My philosophy is simple; I try to fill my clients with as much information as possible so they can make an intelligent decision. So, if you’re looking for a Real Estate professional that has a world of experience and that can guide you through the complex process of buying or selling. All you have to do is take that first step and give me a call.
