Since 1985, I have been actively involved in Residential Sales and Development. My philosophy on sales is to have a strong marketing program, and sound business fundamentals. But more importantly, the determination to accomplish these goals.

From 1987 through 2011, I worked at South Bay Brokers in Manhattan Beach. I finished in the Top 3 in Residential Sales every year and was the #1 Top Producing Agent in 11 out of my 24 years. In 2012, I started Altamura Real Estate Group with my sons Giovanni and Vincenzo and my daughter Alexa.

Our motto is “Success is a Direct Result of Performance.” We rank in the top 1% of all residential realtors in the country
We are conveniently located in Downtown Manhattan Beach at 320 Manhattan Beach Blvd. Please stop by and say hello!

My family is the most important aspect of my life. My wife Kathi is a fourth-generation Californian. She is very active in local charitable organizations. She was the chairperson for Sandpipers Design House, Career Day and Staff Appreciation at Manhattan Beach Middle School. In addition, she was a Scout Leader for The Girl Scouts of America.

We have four children, Giovanni, Brieana and twins Vincenzo and Alexa. All four were born and raised in Manhattan Beach. All have gone through the Manhattan Beach Education System.

Giovanni, Vincenzo and Alexa are graduates from The University of Southern California. Brieana attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in Los Angels and currently owns “BLVD”, which is a clothing boutique attached to our office. She has two beautiful daughters named Carmella (3 yrs) and Chiara (6 months).

As a first-generation Italian from Hoboken, NJ, having my children and grandchildren all close by is truly a dream come true for me.
