MY CABO CONNECTION
For as long as I can remember,
my amazing dad was always chasing bluewater fish. As a kid
growing up in Orange County,
catching albacore out of San
Diego was great but the mighty
Pacific Ocean didn’t always
agree with my stomach.
Around the time I was 25, real
estate entered my life and I met
an amazing man and title representative who took 40+ guys twice a year to Cabo for private fishing tournaments. I participated in over 25 of them through out the 1980's. The tranquil Sea of Cortez made fishing SO much more enjoyable. ;)
In 1995, at the Palmilla Golf Club, I met another amazing man and real estate developer who helped me continue my real estate career in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. To this day I am SO grateful for his encouragement.
In 1998 The search began to find my place in the sun and the the Palmilla Sur/Rancho Cerro Colorado site was selected. During the next 5 years I lived in a home adjacent to this homesite. That owner had a parade of tenants thru who would pick my brain for local knowledge. It was at that moment I realized I truly enjoyed enhancing their Cabo visit and know a 3rd "skip to work" adventure is in my future.
In late 2006, after liquidating my U.S. properties, I began construction. In a matter of months, I could feel the economy eroding underneath me so I called my contractor and told him to pull the guys off the site. (TYS)
In 2018, a massive luxury hotel expansion began and I knew the timing was right. That expansion includes the Ritz Carlton Reserve, 4 Seasons Resort, the Montage Resort and the Nobu Resort just to name a few.
My Time To Step It Up
Over the last 30+ years, charity golf tournaments have become a wonderful way to raise millions of dollars for SO many amazing charities. During that time, I have spent many, many Mondays at some fabulous facilities like Riviera C.C. volunteering to help children's charities put on these tournaments. A few of those include; the American Cancer Society, Orangewood, Olive Crest, Canyon Acres, Big Brother/Big Sisters and the "Duckett Challenge" in Los Cabos to name a few. The next logical step, with SO much need out there is to "Pay it Forward" and donate this future multi-dollar estate to some terrific cause.
I KNOW it can be done.
In 1995 while on a golf/fishing trip with my best friend, I had to put down the rod and reel and go play the very first quality golf course on the entire cape, Jack Nicklaus' at the One & Only Palmilla Resort. It was love at first sight. I was fortunate enough to meet a developer there and 47 weeks later, I was "skipping to work" again. In case you’re wondering, fresh out of college, I was hired as a ski photographer on the slopes in Aspen and thmy very skip to work experience.
