After finishing law school at the University of San Diego and passing the State Bar in 1983, I began my career in real estate as an associate lawyer at a small real estate law firm. In 1988, I co-founded the boutique San Diego law firm of SMYLIE & VAN DUSEN where my practice focused primarily on real estate and business matters. I have represented sellers, buyers, real estate brokers and agents in residential, commercial, and industrial purchase and sale and lease transactions throughout San Diego County and beyond.
In 2007, after more than 24 years of legal service to my clients, I decided to continue my career in real estate as a Realtor. I am pleased to now offer my clients and those of you whom I have yet to meet, my services as a commercial and residential advisor and Realtor with SO Cal Real Estate, Inc.
To me, “service” is more than just a marketing claim. I am proud of the long list of loyal clients and friends with whom I have worked, many of whom have sought my services for over a decade. I want to provide you with the “concierge” level of service you deserve.
I thoroughly enjoy the real estate business and spending time with my family and friends, boating, coaching , traveling, and playing music with my band – The Carbon Copy Band.
