Welcome to my website, a place where I seek to introduce myself and my professional real estate fiduciary services not only to California’s Innkeepers but also to those aspiring Innkeepers who hope to purchase and operate a boutique hotel, classic B&B, luxury inn or historic lodging in the Golden State.

As a Broker who specializes in the niche market of boutique hospitality, I am fortunate to serve California – a vast and exciting realm that reaches from the Mexican to the Oregon borders and then stretches from Nevada to the shores of the Pacific Ocean.  On a daily basis, I am honored to meet and work with successful innkeepers as well as savvy investors and prospective buyers, many of whom come from other states and, increasingly, from abroad.                         

Set amidst snow-capped Sierra peaks and gentle coastal shorelines, California has always been one of the world’s most desirable “destinations,” attracting more travelers from near and afar than any other state in our Union.  And, just as the famed Golden Gate Bridge and treasured Yosemite Valley may forever welcome these valued visitors, so too will California’s many boutique hospitality properties, always hosted by dedicated, creative Golden State Innkeepers.

California offers rewarding hospitality acquisition opportunities, some of which may be found by clicking “Inn Listings” along the top of this page.  Other fine establishments also are available but such “private” properties are owned by sellers who prefer marketing discretion, permit no public advertising and rely on buyers and investors making direct contact with me.

Boutique hospitality comes in many forms -- from blissful coastal beauties to historic Gold Country charmers, from elegant wine country Bed and Breakfasts to sophisticated urban inns with income-producing restaurants.  Local permits may allow some Innkeepers with commercially-zoned establishments to develop their properties into lucrative special event venues while other inns provide tour businesses to help guests learn more about California's compelling, and endless, attractions.               

If your dream is to purchase a California boutique hotel, classic wine country inn, storybook B&B or historic landmark hotel, or if your goal is to sell your existing California boutique hospitality establishment --, and you wish to learn more about professional fiduciary real estate services that I provide --, please contact me.  My greatest honor always is to be asked to serve as a professional real estate fiduciary/broker and to compete for prospective clients' valued business.


CALIFORNIA: Hospitality Dream Destination

US Government statistics long have placed California as our country’s top tourist destination state.  Click on the sidebar link "2015 Market Update" to review recent independent market research that reconfirms the Golden State’s continued dominance as the nation’s top tourist destination. 

Aspiring innkeepers who are serious about the business of owning and operating a successful inn already know that “healthy hospitality” is driven by solid tourism and internationally-compelling destinations.  By adding the essential ingredients of superior guest service and 21st century Internet marketing, any California boutique hospitality property can command high levels of "occupancy" required for healthy hospitality business success. 


 2015 In Review

2015 was another strong year for boutique hotel transactions.  The hospitality industry as a whole is the healthiest that it has been in more than a decade.  As a result, the market is beginning to witness a dramatic increase in private capital flows into independent boutique hotels.  This space is highly fragmented, and high-net-worth real estate investors believe that it is ripe for consolidation.
