Steve started his career in the real estate business in 1985 in the town of Truckee near Lake Tahoe, CA. He worked his way up the real estate ladder from a Sales Associate/Realtor®, to Broker, to manager and ultimately owner of multiple real estate companies. Steve holds the designation of Leading RE Relocation Specialist (LRS), Executive Associate, Master's Club Member, and recipient of Lyon Real Estate’s prestigious C. Mike Messina Award for Excellence.
Over the years, Steve has been very involved in his community. During his fifteen year residence in Truckee, he was a Chamber of Commerce Director and President, as well as a Town Councilman. As a Town Councilman, Steve was fortunate enough to be involved in the town’s formative years, and has served on numerous local, regional, and state committees.
After selling his companies, he moved to the Auburn foothills area, a place where he and his wife had always dreamed of living. There, he pursued additional interests he had always wanted to do. He formed a new business that developed several residential land projects for single-family homes, as well as constructing custom spec homes. Steve’s abilities in this area were noticed by a large, regional, custom home and commercial construction company, and he was asked to become the company’s CEO. Which of course, he did.
In recent years, Steve has seen the need for Green Energy development and felt that it was important to get involved. He helped form a multi-state green energy manufacturing company where he served as its President and CEO during it's development.
Steve and his wife have raised two sons. He's coached his son's soccer team and has been involved in their schooling with numerous field trips. His children are now married and out on their own. They have given Steve and his wife four beautiful grandchildren. He feels fortunate to have them all live nearby in the Rocklin area. Spending time with family means the world to him.
Steve also serves as a Mentor for newly licensed and experienced real estate agents at Lyon Real Estate. It’s a position he thoroughly enjoys. He finds it very rewarding helping colleagues develop the skills they need to become successful through sharing his many experiences and vast knowledge.
Steve is always striving to make his community a better place for his family and the people who live there.
