Hello, my name is George Arrizabalaga, and I am your Regional Sales Executive for our Real Estate and Hotel Umbrella programs. I have been with Distinguished Programs for three years now, and I live in San Diego, California.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

What I like most about my job is working together with my broker partners and really collaborating to find the best solutions for our mutual customers. That personal interaction is something that I really enjoy.

What’s a fun fact about you?

I am married with two beautiful children. My son, Dempsey, is 11 years old, and he plays competitive soccer and flag football, and he enjoys surfing and golfing just like his dad. My daughter, Everly, is 10 years old, and she loves to dance, and is super creative and loves arts and crafts.

What’s your favorite thing about the place where you live?

I live in Encinitas, California, close to the beach, so what I love the most about where I live is going down to the beach, surfing with my kids, taking long walks on the beach, and watching sunsets. That is definitely my happy place.

Who’s the most famous person you’ve ever met?

The most famous person that I ever met was Vince Vaughn. I met him shortly after he did Swingers. We actually met at a wedding reception and no, he did not crash the wedding, and we ended up hanging out for the reception, and well into the evening with a group of friends and we had an absolute blast.

What’s your favorite TV show?

My favorite TV show is Seinfeld. No matter how many times I’ve seen reruns, I absolutely find myself laughing hysterically.
