Kurt Hoyt Hi everyone. I have had a quite different life style since High School. I've tried to correct the slightly out of control existence that I maintained while attending South High and hope that I have grown up a little if you know what I mean. After high school I got into the avaition business, became a Flight Instructor and ended up becoming a Commercial Pilot flying the DC-8 as a Freight Pilot. I decided to go back to college and ended up getting a BS degree in Business with a Real Estate concentration. I then studied Real Estate, became a Real Estate Broker and started Selling and Investing. After college I got married and and had two twin girls and my life completely revolves around my family. I have been living in Palos Verdes for the past 20 years and I would love to hear from some of you if anyone has interest in touching base and sharing stories. It's great to have the opportunity to contact all of you and really hope to hear anyone interested. Best wishes, Kurt
