Lars was born in Hollister, California, a small town in Northern California. In college, he became an NCAA 3 time All-American in swimming, and an academic All-American in water polo. While at UC San Diego as a pre-med student in late 2006, Lars found his way into real estate, right as the market crashed. After moving to Orange County in 2007 to get married, he continued working in real estate, despite the down market. Since graduating from CSU Fullerton in 2008 with a B.S. in Kinesiology, Lars has worked full time in real estate to establish himself as a top agent in the area. It has taken persistence and perseverance to survive in the recovering market, let alone thrive. When Lars is not working, he spends time with his wife, beautiful daughter, and twin rascals. He also devotes time to his church, loves to mountain bike, swim, and be physically active. He is currently searching for the right classic car to restore in his garage.
