You may have taken the opportunity to read my resume regarding my real estate career which spans over a quarter of a century, but I wanted to fill you in with a little more personal information should you desire to know more about the Realtor who could be handling one of the most important financial transactions of your life.
I was born and raised in San Rafael, California, from the mid 50’s to the early 70’s. I had super parents who worked hard to provide us 5 kids with a good Catholic education – despite my best attempts to overthrow the knuckle-cracking regime of Sister Mary Anselma. My dad, who toiled as a butcher until his retirement at 65, is still alive and healthy at 90 years of age in Petaluma, California. Mom passed away 10 years ago.In California, I attended college in Chico and Sacramento as a “Sosh” major, but like many of my contemporaries, I did not have a clue what I wanted to do when I grew up.
Because of my age, I missed the draft and into my early 20’s I had typical youthful indiscretions. Thankfully, that was a brief period of my life, and with greater thanks, not too much damage was sustained in those early and rebellious years. And by the way, those thanks are due to faithful relatives who prayed for years that a wayward Bodeen would turn around.I lived in Sacramento in the mid 70’s, and later moved to Truckee, California, which is near Lake Tahoe and Reno, Nevada. Truckee’s often labeled the “coldest spot in the nation.”
Why did I move there? My father-in-law was a real estate broker in Donner Lake, California, and despite his cantankerous disposition, he seemed very successful in this endeavor known as real estate. I joined him as a Realtor in July of 1976. The Truckee and Lake Tahoe area was a wonderful place to raise a family, but a difficult and cold environment to live in, but we did so for 18 years.In 1994, my wife, Karen, and I visited North Scottsdale at a friend’s request, and within 8 months, our family of 5 had relocated to “the valley” – or is it a desert? Whatever it is, it’s warm. I had never pictured myself as a North Scottsdale Realtor, but once I made the change, I never looked back.
At any rate, almost two decades have gone by since we made the break from the late great state of confusion, er, California, and it’s turned out to be a great move. As for hobbies, I enjoy family, friends and golf (Sometimes Karen questions that order however).
Should you choose to have me as your North Scottsdale Realtor and represent you in the sale of your home, you’ll be receiving my 40 years worth of real estate knowledge, counsel, and experience. Beyond the transaction, I’m always available to you, should you desire my real estate advice – free. I still have previous clients call me from California with questions, though their transaction closed in the 70’s or 80’s.”
