Who’s your dad? JosephNiño. He’s my right-hand man. And your mother? Celina. My fa­ther re­tired in 2006 from the School for the Deaf— he was the build­ing su­per­in­ten­dent— and I pretty much keep him busy with mis­cel­la­neous projects. And my mom is a nurse at Chris­tus St. Vin­cent. And do you have sib­lings? I have a brother and a sis­ter and I have lots of nieces and neph­ews that I adore. In fact, last­week­end I had baby twins born, so I have two new neph­ews. I even have two great-nieces.

When you were in high school, what did you think you wanted to do?

When I was in high school, I ac­tu­ally started work­ing for an in­vest­ment bank­ing firm, as a run­ner, and I re­ally grew my ca­reer there. I was there for eight years. It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence. What firms were you with? Just one, the Santa Fe Cap­i­tal Group. I trav­eled and we were sell­ing com­pa­nies and find­ing ven­ture cap­i­tal for star­tups. At that time, the in­ter­net was hot and we were sell­ing ISPs. It was real es­tate on a dif­fer­ent level. I’d go to in­ter­net trade shows, so I did get a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence in sales and mar­ket­ing. Then when that hap­pened with my sis­ter in 1997, I started think­ing I could work in real es­tate.
