Email: togden@transamericanwholesale.com
About: I have been in the industry since 1982... Whoa that’s a long time!!! I am happy to say that I manage a very “seasoned” & knowledgeable crew, which is in my opinion the best in the industry. They know that we don’t have problems, we just have solutions! I’m lucky enough to live on the beach in beautiful “Belmont Shore” / Long Beach & play volleyball, in basically my front yard. I defiantly utilize my three weeks of vacation time every year, normally with at least one trip “DOWN ISLAND” to the Caribbean. I know I live on the beach & travel to vacation on another beach, silly Hu? My life’s motto is “The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time”
