After graduating from college, Jeff moved to San Diego and then to Los Angeles, working in the education field. He decided to further his education, earning his interdisciplinary master’s degree in health sciences and education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).
Real Estate Experience in the United States
During the five years that Jeff spent in Las Vegas, he started doing home loans and real estate. He became a licensed real estate agent in three states: California, Nevada, and Minnesota. After about five years in Vegas, the market slowed due to the Great Recession, and Jeff decided to return to teaching. He spent the next five years teaching and coaching in California, settling in the Bay Area until he and his wife began to plan their move to Cabo.
Moving to Cabo
After getting married, Jeff and his wife began to seriously discuss the idea of moving to Cabo. They decided to sell their home in California, purchase a home in Cabo, drive down the Baja peninsula, and move to Cabo full time. Shortly after arriving in Cabo, they got a RZR to help them explore the local area and beaches.
