I’ve always believed you get out of life what you put into it! Rewards do come from maintaining a good work ethic, taking responsibility seriously, keeping yourself motivated and above all looking out for your client’s best interests.
Karl has come a long way from his birthplace of Chicago, Illinois. As a young man, he sought greener and warmer pastures and found himself in the east Bay area of San Francisco. While attending college, he met his wife, Victoria. One summer, early in their marriage, Karl and Victoria decided to go camping in state parks along the Oregon Coast. After spending some time in the Gold Beach area, they could not get the place out of their minds. The couple purchased a bare land lot and came up to work on it whenever possible. Each visit to Gold Beach felt more and more right. Having to turn back to California became increasingly difficult.
Coming north, we could feel the tension leave us. The small town atmosphere and friendliness wrapped around us like a comfortable blanket. Returning south, the stress, pollution, density and traffic became unbearable. The decision was made to take the risk and live the dream on Oregon´s Southern Coast. Karl and Victoria put their work ethics to the test and dug in. He soon found a fit in real estate, and Victoria started a landscaping maintenance business.
Karl has associated with Century 21 for the past Twenty years. He quickly proved himself to be an excellent broker, surpassing his peers in sales and continually receiving awards at both the local and regional levels. In addition, Karl served as a member of the Curry County Planning Commission for twelve years. This position allowed him access to find past and current information that affects the ever-changing dynamic of the local real estate market as well as understanding land development complexities.
Karl and Victoria still live on that same ocean view property and have recently celebrated their 30Th anniversary. Their son Eric has flown the coop starting a successful fabrication company, so they are now enjoying freedom as empty-nesters, along with their pals Bailey the dog and Whisper the cat. Amidst a busy life-style, they take advantage of many nearby opportunities to camp, fish and walk on the beach. Victoria tends to her thriving gardens and they both stay busy managing their vacation rental the “Rocky Reef Vacation Home”!
