It is probably true that the real estate operator has the opportunity as well as the responsibility of doing more actual good ‘for the county that he represents than any other profession. He brings settlers and home seekers and builds up the county in more ways than one. This is particularly true of Mr. Tuchsen whose election to serve as President of the Redwood City Board of Trade and San Mateo County Development Association as well as City Trustee of Redwood City, amply testifies.

Mr. Tuchsen was born on February 11, 1864 in Germany. He came to America when comparatively a young man and has resided in California the last thirty-four years. Twenty-one of these years were spent in San Mateo County.

Before settling in this county he tried successively San Luis Obispo, Monterey and Alameda Counties, but found none so much to his taste as the county of his choice.

On March 31, 1897 he was married at Redwood City where his home is now located. There are two children to this union: Elena and Valentine.

Mr. Tuchsen entered the real estate business in Redwood City and San Mateo County at a comparatively early period and participated in the substantial profits accruing therefrom to almost all who had the foresight to see the opportunities in this field of activity. He enjoys a most enviable reputation as an appraiser of real estate values and his opinion hats been accepted in difficult cases by the leading men in banks of San Francisco.
