My Life

I was born and raised in Malibu and have an intimate knowledge of this beautiful stretch of coastline. I grew up in Malibu Colony. My Grandfather first settled in the Colony in the 1930’s. Needless to say, I developed a love for the beach and ocean lifestyle that has served me well in my career. Since 2002 I have lived in Point Dume and fallen in love with this stretch of paradise. 

I became a Malibu real estate agent in 1983 and was fortunate to learn the business from my late mother, Carol Rapf, who was considered the queen of Malibu real estate for several decades. I take great pride in carrying on in her tradition.

Why malibu


Malibu is considered by most people to be a wonderland. With its beautiful scenery all year round, people all over the world see Malibu as their dream place to live in. Start your day by overlooking the ocean in the perfect California weather. Make this dream come true. As a Malibu real estate agent, I can help you find the ideal location.

Malibu is inhabited by surfers, celebrities, and amazing people you want to meet. It is one of the most beautiful beach cities in the U.S, offering a complex housing market. Get a luxurious home in the mountains or something more simple right by the beach. It all depends on your preference. In your journey, I will help you navigate through Malibu and discover your dream home.

How to choose?

Malibu real estate offers a variety of options. From a house where your first step will be the sand, to a house in the mountains that has an unforgettable view of the ocean. My passion is working as a Malibu real estate agent.

Malibu is a tight knit community. I have longstanding relationships in the area, and understand the different nuances that make each area of Malibu unique. I’m well versed in city building codes, local geology and the history of many local homes. All of this is crucial in a tight market—inside information is key when testing the potential sale of a home, or negotiating for a property before it’s on the market. My clients rely on my ability to get them the information they need to achieve their goals.  And the test of my success is always my clients’ satisfaction with their sale or purchase. My roster of pleased homeowners is a long one (please see my client testimonials.)

Building a long and distinguished real estate career is not easy, but I love what I do.  I consider myself so fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful area. I’m married to my lovely wife Jill and we have two amazing children, Luke and Chloe.


Please contact me to discuss my personalized, detailed marketing strategies for the sale of your home. And whether you’re buying or selling, I will use the power of local knowledge to work for you.
