I suppose I’ve been en entrepreneur and independent thinker all my life. As a young boy I washed my neighbors cars every weekend. And delivered the morning Chronicle newspaper daily. These activities kept me in pocket change.
During my career I founded a flooring business. Excelled at providing families life & disability insurance. And as a business development officer for several well known commercial banks. In 1985 I started helping people achieve their real estate goals as a mortgage loan officer.
During my free time I like to spend time with the family. Especially my son, daughter and grandson.
I saw a need to change the way I did business and leave the large corporate real estate companies. I started Bates Real Estate Group because I disliked paying the broker most of my commission after I’d done all the work. Also I hated paying a 6-8% license fee, desk fees and high broker commission splits. I felt I could do better by myself.
In 2009 Bates Real Estate Group was incorporated. We sought to revolutionize the real estate brokerage model.
Listening more than I talk, negotiating and handling transactions from beginning to escrow close are my super powers.
My mission is to build a well known real estate brand that people world-wide recognize.
We look forward to hearing from you!
