About Us

Background

Frank grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Business Administration and then spent three years as an infantry officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. Frank then was selected through competitive process to attend law school through the Marine Corps. While still a Marine Officer, he attended UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law as a Captain. Lisa grew up in a Los Angeles suburb, graduated from Stanford University (English & Economics) and from Boalt Hall as well. We met at Boalt Hall, passed the California bar exam in the fall after graduation, and married shortly thereafter. Then Frank served as a trial attorney and as a Military Judge in the Marines, retiring from the Marine Corps as a Lieutenant Colonel after 20 years of honorable service. For three years Lisa practiced law -- business litigation -- and then she began an at-home career with our children.
 
While Frank was serving our country in the Marine Corps, we moved quite often, usually every 2 or 3 years. Frank served at three different bases in California (Camp Pendleton twice, El Toro, and 29 Palms), in Virginia, and overseas twice, and we learned to be very good at relocating. In 1991 we purchased our first home, and in 1994 we converted it to a rental/investment property. At that point, we became "hooked" on real estate as the best way to build long-term wealth.
 
Before Frank's retirement from the Marine Corps, we earned our California Real Estate Broker's licenses, with the idea that we might want to work in real estate "someday." As Frank's retirement neared, we decided to pursue careers in real estate with the goal of helping as many people as possible attain the American Dream of home ownership. After working in a small, family-owned brokerage and learning the business from the ground up, Frank started our own brokerage, Sand to Sea Properties, Inc.

As a REALTOR®, Frank and his team have helped hundreds of clients purchase and sell homes and investment properties in southern California from the "Sand to the Sea": from the desert communities in the Morongo Basin and Coachella Valley; throughout the Inland Empire; to the ocean communities in San Diego and Los Angeles counties.

ALTHOUGH WE ARE BOTH ATTORNEYS, WE DO NOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE TO OUR CLIENTS. WE MAKE OUR LIVING BY BEING OUTSTANDING REALTORS®. IF YOU WANT LEGAL ADVICE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONSULT A REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY.
 
Having made that disclaimer, we have much greater education and experience than the vast majority of REALTORS®, and you can count on us to provide you top notch service.
 
Several years ago, Lisa started working as a Mortgage Broker to provide even greater service to our clients. As a result, we provide a "one-stop-shop" for our clients looking to buy real estate.

Hobbies

Our current hobbies include investing in real estate, spending time with the family, coaching and watching our kids' sports, and coaching the Murrieta Valley High School Mock Trial team.

The Value Added By Our Team
We have tremendous training and experience, and our network of contacts--both military and civilian--is second to none. We provide you free access to the latest listings and information in the areas we serve, along with community information, school rankings and locators. We expand our knowledge base with training, classes, seminars and research, to achieve the best result for you through greater knowledge of nuances and detail. We protect your interests and maximize your value in purchasing and selling single-family residences and income property. You'll be glad you brought us on board.
 

Good Agents
According to authors Tyson & Brown,* "Good agents spend at least nine hours working behind the scene for every hour spent in the presence of their clients." We are good agents.
 

What About The Size of Commissions?
Almost all compensation a REALTOR® earns is in the form of commissions on the purchases or sales he or she closes. Commissions are negotiable, but they generally vary from 5 to 10 percent of the sales price, normally paid through escrow by the seller of the property to the brokers involved. This commission is split according to the listing agreement between the listing office and the selling office. The office then typically retains a portion of the commission, and the remainder goes to the agent who represented the buyer or seller. From these commissions, the REALTOR® pays for taxes, insurance, advertising, overhead, supplies, transportation, continuing education, and countless other costs associated with running a business.
