Rod’s family made the decision to move to Arnold from the Bay Area when he was two years old. He feels forever grateful that they made that move, and believes that growing up in the mountains had a profound impact on his life. Camping, hiking, and swimming in pristine lakes surrounded by big trees are some of the fond memories of his youth.
Rod attended college at University of California, Santa Barbara. After earning his BA degree he moved to Europe and worked for international technology companies in both Hamburg, Germany and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Living away from Calaveras County for nearly 10 years gave him the perspective to truly appreciate how special this place is. By the end of 2015, the mountains called him home, and Rod once again made Arnold his full time residence, while making real estate his full time career.
Rod believes that buying or selling a home is about people, and the connections one makes. Home is more than just a place we live. It’s what connects us to a place and to the community there.
Whether you are visiting, already living here, or considering the move, Rod would like to welcome you to this wonderful place we call home while introducing you to all the area has to offer.
