I got my start in real estate when I bought my first fixer-upper in San Luis Obispo in 1971. I was a Cal Poly student at 20 years old. The amount I made from the sale on the property paid for my college education.
After college, I returned to my hometown of Fresno and dove into the world of construction. I built banks and medical buildings throughout California. I also designed and built my own office and warehouse complexes that I own and manage to this day. But my favorite projects include some of Fresno’s gems: the restoration of the historic Meux Home and Kearney Mansion, and the construction of the Reptile House in the Fresno Chaffee Zoo.
In 1977, I started my own real estate brokerage, Stumpf and Company. It was time to be my own boss! Since starting my business, I have experienced five major recessions. I believe real estate is a good hedge against inflation: in the long run, values end up increasing after the recession.
After over 40 years in real estate, I still get excited for each day! Every transaction is different, and most of all, I like working with my family.
I use my extensive knowledge and experience to best assist my clients. As a landlord myself, I like to give my clients an insider look of how landlords and tenants think. I also have been teaching investing in real estate class since 1981. I stay in contact with former students who often become my clients.
