Broker NMLS # 69695 DRE # 00569036
That career has continued to grow and expand since 2001 into different businesses, all building a strong foundation through extraordinary service, accessibility and a wide range of experience. His commitment to extraordinary service is founded on the mindset that business is fundamentally about people, not deals.
Because of that he takes a customized personal approach; first to listen and understand client goals and then to educate clients with the best options so they can make the right decision for themselves and their family.
The degree to which Bodhi devotes himself to meeting each and every one of his clients needs shows in all aspects of his service. This service extends beyond the office doors as his resourcefulness and deep connection to the community allows Bodhi to direct clients to a vast network including legal, financial, advisors, contractors etc.
Service is nothing without communication and thus there is always the goal of immediate response for client calls, text, emails or in person meetings. That accessibility to clients and business partners is part of what sets the entire Empower Capital team apart. Calls, emails and texts are returned within 24 hours if not right away.
Bodhi believes in building and maintaining lifelong relationships which is why Empower thrives on repeat clients and referrals which currently makes up 90% of the business. Accessibility continues well after any given transaction ends, not days or months but years and decades.
His service and accessibility is backed up with a wide range of experience. The well-rounded candid and strategic approach has made a giant footprint in the Northern California residential and Commercial Real Estate markets with over 1000 Real Estate Transactions and 300 million in gross sales in the past 15 years in addition to funding thousands of loans.
Bodhi also has exclusive proprietary community bank relationships. After analyzing thousands of client’s personal and business tax returns and asset portfolios he will often meet with clients CPAs and Financial advisors resulting in a vast understanding of short term financial planning leading to long term financial security.
In the same regard, conferring with clients’ attorneys has led to extensive work in divorce, trusts, mitigation finance, bankruptcy, business disputes, foreclosure, eviction, and tax law and being qualified by California superior courts as an expert in real estate financing. In addition to banking he has also owned and managed a private escrow division and represented and managed multiple elderly care businesses and real estate.
While service, accessibility and experience is the foundation to his successful businesses, none of that is possible without being able to clear the mind and enjoy life. Vacation time is often spent with his wife and two children visiting family in other countries like Italy, Costa Rica and Mexico or a long weekend to the East Coast or Hawaii. Meditation time consists of pruning his fruit and olive orchard, maintaining a huge organic vegetable garden or thinning and rearranging the flower gardens. Leisure time usually is comprised of water sports, golf, fitness, hiking or enjoying one of the many great restaurants Wine Country has to offer.
