What are you looking for in a Real Estate Agent? If you don’t know, you are not alone. Many people do not know what a competent Agent can do for them. My name is Ralph Santos, a Los Angeles native, that is now working for you alongside with Park Regency Realty. I am a no nonsense person who doesn’t believe in mediocre work. I grew up in Gardena, California and upon graduating from Gardena High School, I was given the opportunity of being able to serve my country! I was accepted in the United States Army. At the end of my military service, I opted to pursue my college education. I graduated with honors, Cum Laude, from the University of Southern California (USC) with a degree in Occupational Therapy. I obtained my license and my registration as an Occupational Therapist (OTR/L) with the majority of my professional career being in the field of geriatrics, specifically in working with my patients in their homes. My duties as an OTR/L have included working with clients on modifying their homes due to expected changes that come about from our normal aging. While working as an OTR/L, I decided on going back to school to work on my graduate degree in the field of business. I obtained my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) in Carson, California. I was able to merge my skill set as an Occupational Therapist with the knowledge given to me via my MBA and I was able to successfully open three health care businesses in the Los Angeles area.
My hobbies include spending time with my wife (Diana), being an active part our teenage son’s incredible life, being physically active, and also spending time with our two rescue dogs, Luna and Coco. I do believe that the family alongside with a strong spiritual belief are the essential pillars to having a good life. My ethics and perseverance have allowed to me to pursue and to accomplish many of my life goals.
What can I offer you, the buyer or the seller? When you are looking at agents to work with, consider a few things. One is what is the value proposition that that agent is offering? Anyone can list a property and or search for properties, but does that person have the skill set to protect you and your investment? Does that agent work with what we call a full service real estate brokerage, such as Park Regency, where we have teams that will walk you from the lending process to the escrow process to the point where you [buyer] one day can open up the doors to your new home? If you are looking for an agent that can help you learn and help you understand the ins and the outs of your specific transaction, then give me a call.
