More About Me

My passion

What gets me out of bed every morning and charged up to meet the day is the chance to help people. This opportunity gives me focus, and starts me off in a positive mindset. Being able to creatively solve problems is fulfilling to me, and I am rewarded with the trust I gain from people in my sphere.

How I can help you

I leverage my knowledge and experience for my clients. I guide them through the many moving parts that make up a purchase or sale. I have a proven process for successfully closing real estate transactions. I achieve my client's goals, whether financial, time line, or any of the other myriad needs that they bring to me. Along the journey, we will both learn, and gain more than just a real estate transaction. And I will make the journey enjoyable. Coming from an extensive background in hospitality, I am adept at putting my client's minds at ease, and making them feel comfortable during the process.

My background

I am a native PNWer, having been born and raised on the Eastside. I started playing trombone at the age of 10, and that opened up music as one of the cornerstones of joy in my life. Having moved on to guitar has kept my passion for music alive, and my music room wall full of guitars. My wife and I love exploring all of the corners of our beautiful region, including weekend getaways to the San Juans, Victoria, Vancouver, the mountains, Eastern Washington, and the Peninsula. I come from a long history in the hospitality industry, having been a general manager at some iconic restaurants. This prepared me to have a focus on the happiness of my guests, as well as honed my business moxie to operate successful, profitable businesses. 


I believe in giving back to my community. I have volunteered extensively with Attain Housing (located in DT Kirkland), and was honored with their Volunteer Of The Year award in 2019. I also sit on the Government and Public Affairs Committee with Seattle King County Realtors, and am up to date with current trends in our regional real estate market, as well as activities at the state level. I am also treasurer for the Juanita Neighborhoods Association. As such, I am dialed in to not only our real estate market, but also community events and city infrastructure projects which impact our daily lives. In short, I am your local real estate expert!
