About Us

Kurt Kodama and Gary Bosworth

"The home purchasing or selling process can be complicated and somewhat unpredictable. Having gone through several purchasing and/or selling transactions of our own during the past few years we know the person you choose to represent you can make a significant difference in that experience.

We have the skill and experience to make the process as stress free and simple as possible. We also have the aptitude and foresight to help you quickly resolve issues if they arise.”

As a third generation homeowner on the Monterey Peninsula, Kurt Kodama brings his lifelong interest in real estate, drive to succeed and expertise developed in a corporate career spanning almost 30 years to the responsibility of representing clients in the purchase or sale of their luxury homes and estates.

"I was born and raised in Monterey and understand the special appeal of each community in our area.  I moved to Southern California to obtain an undergraduate degree from UCLA in economics and master’s degree from USC in business administration, and after earning my degrees, remained in Southern California to pursue a 27-year corporate career with Bank of America where I specialized in commercial real estate construction financing and then commercial real estate problem loan resolution. 
Throughout my career, I honed my negotiation skills in high stakes and complex financing transactions which included some of Bank of America’s largest non-performing commercial real estate credit exposures and rose through the ranks of the organization.  I led a nationwide organization that resolved billions of dollars in problem commercial real estate construction financing in North America and that on occasion required the resolution of financing for jet aircraft, yachts, concourse quality automobile collections and jewels that were sold through the world’s most prestigious auction houses. 
A few years ago, I retired from my corporate career and returned home to Monterey to help my aging parents.  Through this experience, I understand caring for aging or ill parents while navigating the emotional and logistical difficulties of helping them sell the dream home they built and lived in for almost six decades. 
In the past four years I have been through six buying or selling transactions of my own including the purchase and sale of what at the time was my vacation home in Pacific Grove and, after a long search, the purchase of what is now my primary home in Carmel.  Through the experience I gained with my homes that I purchased, remodeled and sold in Southern California, along with the homes I have owned or now own on the Monterey Peninsula, I understand the general issues that exist when purchasing/remodeling a home and the specific ones that can exist due to restrictions in the area. 
In my spare time, you will find me working with the professionals and construction trades who are helping me remodel my home in Carmel, curating a modest collection of art, sculpture, decorative art and furniture that I have assembled over the last three decades through purchases made at major auction houses in the United States and Europe, as well as enjoying the Monterey Peninsula’s world-renowned natural beauty; dining and recreation activities.”

Having the luxury to choose where he wanted to live, Gary Bosworth, a more recent transplant to the Monterey Peninsula, brings his passion for the area, a keen interest in real estate, over 30 years of experience as a business and engineering manager, and a precision focus on results to help his clients find their dream home.

I grew up in the Seattle area and obtained a bachelor’s in engineering from the University of Washington.  My engineering career started in Southern California with a company that later became part of Raytheon Company to form one of the nation’s largest defense contractors. I earned a master’s in ocean engineering from the University of Southern California. Additionally, I became a licensed professional engineer in the State of California. Later, following a transfer to the Detroit area to start a commercial business, I earned a master’s in business administration from Michigan State University. 
My career rapidly evolved through a variety of engineering, project, and business management roles with increasing responsibility. This included being the director for a consulting group that provided engineering and information technology services to clients including our largest - General Motors Corporation. My business management roles required understanding and developing specific marketing and advertising strategies that were focused on achieving sales goals which were met year after year.
After working in the automotive sector for half my career I returned to Southern California to work initially on Homeland Security and then on space and airborne programs primarily for the US Department of Defense. Through this experience I understand the need to perform to exacting standards to see that my clients unique and critical requirements are met.
The importance of who I selected to represent me in the sale and purchase of my homes was made clear by experience in relocating across the country as a widower with pre-teen children. Additionally, during the past two years I have been through three buying or selling transactions of my own homes (including my home in Monterey) giving me a first-hand perspective of my client’s needs. 
After retiring from my corporate career, I became more involved with a non-profit organization serving in leadership roles including president of the Board of Trustees managing over $1 million in property renovation and maintenance projects and for a time was an on-line course instructor at UCLA Extension. 
In my spare time, I enjoy learning the art of bonsai, discovering the wines of Monterey County, and hiking the local trails around Big Sur and the coastal mountains. I am also the proud father of my two children who are young adults with careers of their own and I look forward to the day when we can spend more time together.”
