Relocating to Oceanside, California, he then specialized in the purchase and integration of creational vehicle businesses and franchises through Musick Enterprises’ Hyko Division between 1983 and 1993.
Shortly thereafter, Mr. Musick served as the founder and president of Security Asset, Inc. from 1993 to 2003. In this distinguished role, he took the company public on the stock market and topped the NASDAQ. During this astounding stretch of time, he was recognized for his diligent work ethic and garnered political connections throughout the U.S. government. Since 2003, Mr. Musick has served as a realtor with Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, holding several certifications such as a CNSA/CMSA, contract negotiator, probate and trust sales agent, new agent group trainer and REO/short sale specialist, as well as a Feng Shui agent.

Renowned for his ability to listen to clients’ problems, learn about their businesses, evaluate their pursuits and complex issues, and suggest solutions, Mr. Musick notes that it is integral to listen instead of speak, as individuals learn from listening and not talking. Looking toward the future, he intends to continue flourishing in his current path until he is unable to work.
