I would like to share with you a little about myself and things that I am interested in and passionate about, as well as, the many endeavors’ I am involved with. Allow me to share with you how; with allot of drive and determination, I have built the Wilson family name into an enterprise that thrives around my multiple talents and interests.
I was born and raised in the South Bay, in southern California. At an early age of 8 years old I worked in the family store “Wilson's Department Store" in Lomita, California. I attended, the local schools; Eshelman, Fleming, Narbonne, Harbor JC, and CSULB, played basketball throughout school and later got involved in martial arts and beach volleyball, which I still enjoy with my wife and sons.
At the age of 23, I started my career in Real Estate. In 1981, I began selling homes, flipping properties, investing in income properties and property development. In 1993, I went back to school and received my Brokers License. I have been a guest speaker at the California Association of Realtors annual conference. I have received the CRS designation from the California Associations of Realtors. This is the defining credential for professionalism, ethics and success in the industry.
My wife Mary Stansbury-Wilson and I opened Real Estate of South Bay in January 2008. I am the Broker/CEO of the company and have an experienced group of professionals that work with me. I have a broad knowledge of the South Bay area and I can be an asset to you, your family or business when you are home buying, investing or selling in this market.
It was about 10 years ago when I started to get a wild idea about “rally racing.” The idea of competitively racing a real car, real fast, on real roads started to grab ahold of me. After a bit of research, and allot of investigation of the sport, Old Dirty Racing was born. What began as a grass roots hobby has turned into a multi-car professionally sponsored rally team that spans across the country. We have multiple race wins and a series championship under our belt, and we are looking forward to even further growth in the future. If rally racing has ever interested you, please feel free to contact me. Old Dirty Racing takes pride in introducing this wonderful and adrenalin filled sport to new potential fans!
Music has always been a part of my life. From the time I purchased my first Fender Stratocaster, a guitar was never far from my side. After many years of practicing at home and studying my craft with local guitarists and musicians our blues band was formed. Old Dirty Blues now performs at multiple venues throughout the California Beaches and the South Bay area, please check out our website for a calendar of performances, or contact me directly for any information you desire about Old Dirty Blues.
Following suit with my passion for music, Studio-637 has been launched in Hermosa Beach, California. We have purchased an outstanding location to build into an industry standard recording studio. You can follow along with us on Studio-637's website as we turn what was an automotive part production facility into a one of a kind recording studio with a flair for the interesting, and second to none recording equipment and acoustics.
Capitalizing on the talents of my oldest son Rick Wilson, we have purchased and restored a 4800 square foot automotive shop in Green Cove Springs, Florida. Dr. Dirty's Rusty Nuts Garage has grown from our success building our race team, and has grown into a successful standalone business. Dr. Dirty’s Garage specializes in automotive restoration, fabrication and sales. We also specialize in auto consignment and chasing cars for our various customers’.
So, as you can see we are very busy, but when you are fortunate enough to turn your passions into professions, it really doesn’t feel like you are going to work. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me, and please feel free to contact me directly if you need any more information.
