Only the Best for You

64, Retired Architect/Designer and Luxury Property Manager

A warm welcome to my site:
Only the Best for You
Because you and your home and pets deserve the best care possible.

Several aspects of my service set me apart from most others.
I am a retired architectural and interior designer who has created projects throughout California over many years both for my own account and for others. Often these exceptional estate residences were restored or newly built for resale.
As such I was also responsible for the management and oversight of the homes until, and sometimes even after, they were sold.
Therefore I limit my engagements to only luxury and estate properties. I understand what is important for the proper care and management of these exceptional homes both from an architectural and interior point of view. I appreciate and relate to fine furnishings, antiques and art because I have myself lived with these things for many years. I also have vast experience in garden design and maintenance supervision.
I will be "At Home in Your Home".

Through my career and travels I also have experience throughout Southern, Central and Northern California. As such I am available in all the following areas:

Newport Beach & Laguna Beach and Coastal communities
Newport Beach is my home base and serving you throughout coastal Orange County would be my pleasure.

Beverly Hills and the West Side
Los Angeles and Pasadena
I was raised in Beverly Hills and am very familiar with all the lovely West LA communities and I am frequently there. I'm also familiar
with Hancock Park. And with Pasadena, San Marino and nearby communities.

Palm Springs
I have restored and lived in great Mid Century Modern homes in Palm Springs for many years and know the town intimately.
Lake Arrowhead is another
treasured resort location for me all my life. This mountain community is so full of memories and my experiences there go back decades. I know all the best neighborhoods around the lake.

Santa Barbara & Montecito
I go way back with Santa Barbara and Montecito where I have gained much architectural inspiration over the years and been fortunate to be a guest in and to view interiors of some world-class estates.

Carmel & Pebbke Beach
I have personally owned very special homes in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Highlands and Pebble Beach. I love it there! And frequent trips to San Francisco provide me with familiarity of its top neighborhoods.

Please do not hesitate to message me with your inquiry, telling me about your needs and providing a method of contact. I will do my best to get in touch promptly. We can then speak on the phone and perhaps meet in advance of the engagement. Of course I can provide impeccable references.
I look so forward to talking with you in the near future. In the meantime, Stay Well and Stay Safe.
I remain, Sincerely Yours,
