As a Santa Barbara native and longtime Ventura County resident, Chuck grew up blocks from the beach and is a lifelong kayaker, surfer, and diver, with a love for the ocean. He is involved in coastal issues and is considered one of the foremost resources on seawalls, conservancy, wave interaction, and local planning. He has a 15-year track record of remodeling and restoring homes.

Chuck’s background includes the founding of several successful tech companies, as well as the development of an ocean weather forecasting and visualization system that was used by over 30 thousand surfers a day. Today, he leverages his unique skill set to help people find the right home for the right price on the beach. Chuck closed a record $16 million in sales in just five short months, further emphasizing his ability to navigate complex, fast-paced scenarios.

Together with his daughter Shannon, he proudly represents clients up and down the Rincon Coast, from Ojai to Ventura. The father-daughter team makes up Coastline Property Management, a small family-run operation.

Chuck is happily married to wife Candy of 50 years and enjoys surfing, mountain biking, and spending time with his two children and four grandchildren who live nearby.

Raised in Ventura, Shannon moved with her family to Faria Beach at 16 and fell in love with the tight-knit community. Today, her deep-rooted local knowledge of Ventura County beach towns and ability to foster conversation and connection has led to lasting relationships and repeat clientele. Shannon is a pro at guiding buyers to their perfect property on the California coast, specializing in Ventura and Ojai neighborhoods.


For sellers, Shannon offers creative solutions and strategic marketing campaigns that make a splash. However, it’s her passion for the coastal lifestyle, architecture, and design that truly elevates the client experience.

Shannon is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo with a degree in Graphic Design. Prior to real estate, she worked for lifestyle brands Patagonia and Quiksilver and later opened the now legendary Wetsand Surf Shop with her family in downtown Ventura’s Historic Main Street Promenade.
