Sean grew up in Laguna Beach California and throughout his life has called Laguna Beach, LA, London, Milan, Miami and now Las Vegas home. Since moving to Vegas in 2010 he initially worked in Marketing & VIP client services for a multi-national hospitality, restaurant and nightlife group before leaving to open his own restaurant and begin his professional real estate career.
Sean brings to his real estate business over 30 years of Marketing, Public Relations, Sales, Promotions and VIP Customer Service experience working with several multi-national companies. He is also a business entrepreneur, having opened several small businesses. In an industry where 87% of Real Estate agents lack any sales, marketing, customer service or business experience, 70% of Realtors will not be in the business a year from now. In stark contrast to that temporality, it is crucial to select a Realtor whom you can trust with what may be the biggest purchase or sale of your life!
Sean is known for his follow-through, responsiveness and meticulous attention to detail. An out of the box thinker and a get it done right attitude! These are all important factors when choosing a REALTOR® to work with to buy or, especially SELL YOUR Home!
In addition, he believes it’s important to always expand ones skills and stay a breast of all the cutting edge technologies and marketing methods. What worked in the past and years ago or in some cases several months ago, are already obsolete. As a better way to serve his clientele, he spends several days annually attending real estate, business and marketing trainings and conferences.
Some of his designations and affiliations include: CIPS • Certified International Property Specialist (out of over 2 million licensed Realtors in the United States there are approximately only 2500 CIPS Designees), SRS • Seller Representative Specialist. Sean is also a member of AREAA - Asian Real Estate Association of America and a Member of the Global Business Committee at the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors.
These various affiliations and ecosystems give him the ability to assist his clients on a national and global platform. Agents from other regions often refer him their clientele when they are relocating to Las Vegas.
As a professional REALTOR®, Sean has ongoing access to experts in every related field from lending to relocation.
